  1. Nice job! I was beginning to think only famous or connected people got tickets to any of those shows. It certainly seemed that way for the inaugural Foo Fighters show. Was the fan exchange platform a Wilco thing or an Atlantis thing? If it's the latter, where is it? Hoping to get Jenny Lewis tickets for the Atlantis somehow.
  2. I haven't been to the Atlantis, but the old 9:30 didn't have a balcony and it was in this weird "L" shape where one part of the "L" was around the corner from the stage and you could only see the performance on TVs hanging on the walls. The ceiling was also approximately 6 feet high! There were poles in the place like he mentioned and at the top of one of them was a camera man who filmed the performance for the TVs in the back. The place was always about 200 hundred degrees and smelled nasty! Changing gears, how the hell did you score tickets for this?!?!? I live in DC and don
  3. Whoops! I responded to Heart Full of Holes, before I read bbop's (better) response.
  4. I'm 99% sure there was a set list. I was up in the balcony and could see a sheet of paper on the table next to the mic. It looked like a list of words, rather than a lyric written out, so it was either his grocery shopping list, or the set list! ;-)
  5. Great write up, thanks!! I'd like to see the original setlist vs what was played last night. At one point early in the set, someone shouted out "Uncle Tupelo" and after some banter from Jeff, he went into New Madrid. A little later, after the singalong in the Lou Reed song, he said something like, "Ok, so this is the type of audience you are. You like singing along. It usually takes me a while to figure it out". And in response to the good singing, he went into Passenger Side and Jesus, etc. It made me wonder if those three songs were on the setlist or if he just called an au
  6. The Cut Your Hair with Malkmus was amazing! I happened to catch it on Susie's Instagram and I was floored. One by the surprise of it all, but also the performance. I've never seen Malkmus that animated ever! He seemed to be channeling a very hopped up David Bowie or something. Jeff did a fantastic job nailing the solo and Steve's sound/style too.
  7. I don't know either one of you, but your wife sounds hilarious! I'm getting a big Susie Tweedy vibe!

    Totally..........and go to all the shows, and buy merch, and see the solo performances and offshoot bands, etc, etc. Multiple version of every single Grateful Dead show is up on the ReListen app, and the GD releases something like five shows per year for sale, so it seems like free streaming and selling live shows can work financially. The problem I have, and I suspect many of you do, is I want to listen to 50 shows, or 100 or 500, (or all of them) and I want to be able to jump around and maybe checkout a certain song every 5 years or so, or see how it sounds in differe
  9. Was that an amazing version of Heros, or was I just in a good mood?!?!? (Just saw a snowy owl a half hour prior!) I absolutely loved it, except for the weird tuning! I don't have enough guitars for that!!
  10. Did you guys see the Tweedy Show last night (stupid question!). Jeff seemed as confused and upset/helpless as all the folks with tickets. He also made it clear that Wilco is contracted performer just like they would be if they played any other show in Boston or Phoenix or any other place. Maybe they can do what Phish* did? They had to cancel their NYE live show, so the band played a full show to an empty arena and aired it live on YouTube for free. They got to play a show, the fans got to see a show and it seemed to be as close to a happy medium as was possible. * I
  11. I'll gladly buy another book!! Or a record. Or concert tickets. I won't buy another "Jeff Tweedy" capo though. I got caught up in the hype earlier in the summer and bought an identical capo that I already had. Well, this one was 10 dollars more and had a rainbow pattern on it, but other than that it was identical!
  12. In spite of my negative comments above, I have to say I was blow away by the email I just received about getting the glass heart/egg from a fan and what he was going through at the time. I hope all these stories end up in a book at some point.
  13. First, I have to say I'm amazed at how prolific Jeff is, especially lately with the new songs, and the Tweedy show and now this. It's amazing he has time for his main job in Wilco!!! But it sort of irks me that he's charging for this stuff. Yes, I realize I'm being kind of a jerk for expecting everything for free, and there's no obligation for me to get the pay version of Starship Casual, but it rubs me the wrong way. And I totally agree with the "Life is becoming an endless series of subscriptions". As the Beatles sang...........It's all too much!
  14. I'll echo everyone's comments about the horrible sound down in the front. We ended up in the the third row for S-K's set and managed to stay there for the rest of the night. In retrospect, I kind of wish I went to my Row P seats to take advantage of better sound. It took me a while to figure out why the pit was so dead and why I kind of "bored" with the set. Bored is not the right word, I wasn't bored, I just wasn't moved by the music. It slowly dawned on me that it was the sound that was bringing people down. The most egregious example of the horrible mix (up close
  15. Thanks sinko! I'm only seeing one show too. That comment from Jeff surprised me, especially after the constant change ups during the Tweedy show.
