  1. Stellar review!!!! Soooooo glad that the Nova made it back across the pond intact and with another worthy running buddy (RNG).
  2. If you had told me 10 years ago that VC would be the safe haven for civil discourse regarding a new Wilco record, I would have called you a liar. Or at least a lousy prognosticator.
  3. Massive hugs to each and every one of you all!!! Hangeth in there!
  4. Today it seems that all of our Ode to Joy chattering has piqued the interest of the Russian Spam-Bots once again. Lucky us!!
  5. Schmilco definitely had its share - Normal American Kids... Shrug and Destroy... somewhat Quarters, and even Common Sense (if you're waltzing on acid), which is why I put that in the arc to get from "noise to "dirge". And yes, that ignores the powerpop/rock contributors like ST or SW, but that's been somewhere in the mix for almost every record. I maybe should have added "introspective" in the arc (SBS/TWL), but that was too long of a word. But yeah, Sukierae was the most prolific example of the waltz genre for sure.

  6. So let's recap Wilco's career arc: Twang>Noise>Waltz>Dirge
  7. One lap through and I’m not totally sure what to make of it. Oh,TCP.... bummer, eh?
  8. Excellent news!! See you there. Or Nashville first to be precise. And hats off from me on the reviews....but a little more Nova coverage wouldn't kill ya, would it??
  9. Ken Stringfellow (round 2!) And Donna, round 1 was sooooo nice.... 25-30 people, set in a small chapel of a church. Basically a living room show.
  10. Strand of Oaks (with rumored local special guests!) with Apex Manor opening. Louisville Z-Bar.
  11. William opened up (solo), and was magnificent as always. He really filled out the songs that he recorded with a band, using some loops on Highway Anxiety and just playing with what seems like 18 fingers on others. Love that guy. Kevin was in "duo" mode, with just him and another guy who played mostly sax and some flute. Kevin was mostly on guitar and a couple songs on keyboard. The new tunes were really cool stripped back and sparse, some with guitar instead of the piano on the record. Mostly new stuff off OMG, and even only a wee snippet of City Music tucked inside another song. Willia
  12. Thanks for checking in!! Gonna be a great tour. SOOOOO glad to see NovaCat still on the setlist. Cheers amigo!!
  13. I would have loved to meet the Dolphin sign guy, even if it was an imposter / copycat. Although the correct non-original version is “Bull Black Nova will save the dolphins”. Oh, and great recap btw! Nice tag-team reporting!!
  14. Loved them. Second time seeing them and it’s a fabulous show.
  15. Yola, I'm With Her, Lucinda, Gary Clark Jr..... Railbird fest day 2
