  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. I like they songs they're playing, but has their setlist ever been this static? Other than the first night of the tour, the sets have been identical, and even the first night was nearly identical to the rest. I know I sound like a ungrateful jerk, especially after more than a year of no concerts but it's just surprising. I would think they'd get bored out of their heads. I'm still super psyched for Merriweather but kind of scratching my head.
  7. This is amazing! Thank you!!! Just the other day I was wondering if anyone was nutty/dedicated enough to do this. Thanks again!
  8. Have they stopped posting these shows to youtube? Or are they in a different place? The last entry on Susie's youtube page was from October. Apologies if this has been asked and answered 10 pages ago!
  9. Thanks all...………..I'm a day late and a dollar short...………...story of my life!
  10. Thanks gents! Bummer about Wilco and archive.org, but I'm sure glad they still let us tape the shows! Is the live show archive The Owl and Bear site or is there some other beast out there? Can you stream the live shows or do they have to be downloaded first? (I'm very late to the streaming party, and still buy physical copies of music, but I'm starting to see the wisdom in streaming vs physical copies)
  11. Awesome! Now I just need to figure out what Dropbox is and how to download the files!! Does Wilco still allow taping or were you stealth? Years ago, I recorded the Constitution Hall show from the soundboard area. No soundboard feed, but I got to set up my mics there. So I guess to answer my own question, yes, they Still allow taping. Or do they?!?! I always wondered why they are not on the Relisten app.
  12. Last night was game four of the NLCS and if the Nats were to win, they'd go on to the World Series (they won). But I have to think that had some affect on the crowd. When I got there, it was very mellow out front. There were no lines to get in, and they was NO ONE looking for tickets. Usually it's a madhouse out there, with huge lines in both directions. My friend had 4 tickets she couldn't use (went to the Nats instead) and we couldn't even give them away! We ended up turning them in to the Anthem staff who said they'd give them to people who lost their ticket or had some ticket related
  13. Here's the setlist as printed: Well, that didn't go so well. I'm getting an error message that says: "The server returned an error during upload" Anyone have any idea what my problem is?!?! (About trying to upload the setlist, not about my life in general!) You and I was listed between Via Chicago and Bull Black Nova and the encore was listed as Empty Corner, Cali Stars and The Late Greats
  14. Does this site still exist? I can't seem to find it. Is there an active live streaming Wilco site?
  15. That might have been the line in DC too. I’m not 100% sure of my quote......hell, I’m not even 50% sure!
  16. Thanks for the great write up bbop!! I care!! This is probably old news (I haven't been on this site in ages), but in Misunderstood, Jeff approximated the chaotic part of the song where the whole band goes crazy, but it was just him banging away and hitting dead notes, and wrong notes on the acoustic. Very cool and kind of funny. Speaking of funny, Jeff was hilarious and charming all night long. While I'd much rather hear him play and sing, I'd be psyched if he did a spoken word tour ala Henry Rollins. His delivery and comedic timing are incredible. You'd think he made his living as
  17. I wondered the same thing right after his death, but then a while later when the autopsy came out it said something like the arteries in his heart were down to pin hole size. The implication being that even if he stayed clean, a lifetime of abuse, diabetes and being overweight did so much damage that no matter what he did, he didn't have much time left. I was at work when I heard the news on NPR. I went home for the day. Does anyone else remember the internet "breaking" on 8-9-95 from overuse?
  18. A friend of mine hooked me up with a surprise version of the 18 disc set. I haven't listened to much yet, but when I was looking online at the track listing I was surprised at how much repetition there was.....until Disc 18 where it's all and different and the songs are not on any of the other discs. This disc doesn't even look like it belongs with the rest of the set! I'm kind of surprised they didn't release those tunes on a more affordable version. They're on the 6 disc version, only the 18. They're pretty much begging you to go out and bootleg the bootleg!
  19. Years ago, at the start of the digital age (or maybe the rise of MP3) someone asked Keith Richards what he thought of it all and his quote was something like, "I don't care if it's delivered on a frozen pea! The important thing is for people to be listening to music". Or something like that.
  20. Talking about a release of live "religious period" stuff: Have you heard any of it live? (you probably have, but maybe not) It's great and powerful and full of fire and brimstone and passion and all that stuff that makes a performance great. I get it if you can't get behind the message or the lyrics, but I love the delivery.
  21. I wasn't a fan either, but at least Brent could sing! If you're looking for the lowest of the low, look no further Phil Lesh. I love him on the bass, but as a singer and songwriter, he's less talented than me! And I'm awful!! Exhibit A, B and C: Wave To The Wind Childhood's End If The Shoe Fits
  22. Over at the Gumbo Pages, they have the chords and (maybe) the riff for Don't You Honey Me, but I can't figure out the riff. There seems to be 10 lines of tab.....not 6 for 6 guitar strings or 12 for 2 separate lines of guitar strings. http://www.gumbopages.com/music/wilco/songs/dont.you.honey-me.txt It looks like this: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------
  23. Cool, thanks! I didn't know that.
  24. Is it possible to record live music (or anything) an iPhone with external mics in a high quality, non-mp3 format? In the past, I've used a Marantz digital deck but it's fairly large and bulky and an iPhone is about 95% smaller! Is there an app that will let me record in high quality? Thanks! Bart
