  1. Thanks for the set list, Paul. 8/14/2022 was our first hometown show that we missed since 2002 - Dynamic pricing and Live Nation's exorbitant fees kept us away. This is the third stage on the White River State Park site. The first was a temporary semi-trailer stage that you often see used at festivals. The second stage was a yearly temporary scaffolding stage that was built each spring and torn down each fall, and finally the new mini shed type venue was planned to open in 2020, but moved to 2021 due to, you know, a worldwide pandemic that we are apparently over. I'm sad to ha
  2. Thanks bböp. It would have been difficult to have gotten two night of recap in one thread ;-) Stay healthy on the road and enjoy!
  3. The Talented Tweedy Family By Peter C. Baker https://www.newyorker.com/culture/culture-desk/the-talented-tweedy-family In the evening of March 19th, Susie Tweedy picked up her phone, opened Instagram, and started streaming live from her family’s Chicago home. Normally, her account is devoted to showcasing her vast collection of retro tchotchkes. On that night, though, she featured a new subject: her family, sheltered in place. There they were, visible to anyone who happened to be tuning in: her husband, Jeff, best known as the singer and primary songwriter of the band Wilco, and their two

  5. Wilco Offer Free, On-Demand Stream of ‘I Am Trying to Break Your Heart’ Documentary To help entertain fans in self-isolation, Wilco is offering their I Am Trying To Break Your Heart documentary for free from May 5-12. According to a description, I Am Trying to Break Your Heart “captures the band Wilco and the creation of their record Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. A film which not only looks at a turbulent chapter in the band’s history, but also a breakthrough moment in the struggle for artistic freedom in the corporate-dominated music industry. Rolling Stone hailed it as “one of the greatest music

  8. This. A United States "Liberal" is the current conservative in a lot of countries. No politician is perfect and the Democratic party needs to start remembering this.
  9. Aerosmith reunited with Joey Kramer in Las Vegas on February 10 for the first time since the drummer filed a lawsuit against his bandmates last month in an effort to rejoin the lineup following a series of health issues....http://www.hennemusic.com/2020/02/video-aerosmith-reunites-with-drummer.html
  10. It's my understanding the Republicans had the same shit show in 2012. While I don't remember it, I do trust the source. Caucuses are equal to the Electoral college. Both are long past due for change. http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/when-it-comes-iowa-trump-throws-stones-glass-house#break
  11. Drive By Truckers - The Unraveling A great record for these fucked up times. Greg is spot on. https://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/music/greg-kot/sc-ent-drive-by-truckers-review-0131-20200131-qfg4432ezbhzlouir4uczlvh7i-story.html (edited due to the page break)
  12. And to come out with these statements BEFORE the witness arguments even started is appalling. It shows they had their minds made up before it even started.
  13. It's always about the money. Follow the money and the truth will eventually come out. Take the time to go to the Forensic News web site. The main street media has avoided this now for 3 weeks.
  14. If you didn't have a chance to watch the closing of the impeachment hearings today, Thursday 1/23, please watch at least the last 10 minutes to see how eloquent Adam Schiff was...all while Ted Cruz and Marsha Blackburn showed us what a true disgrace they are.

  17. Even if senators vote against impeachment, I really hope we can get the witnesses. Everyone, please pass this number along. 202-225-3121 - the prompts take you through everything and you can leave a voice message or talk to a live congressional staff member. I only give them my first name and zip code and tell them I will not give an address because I do not want political advertisements in my mailbox.
  18. I had forgot all about that. I rode it in the early 2000's. We had a good time. Enjoy.
  19. UGH, I just looked at the set lists from the last few months. 15 songs. Thant's less than 90 mins. I went to the first show on 4/6/2019 because I was in Las Vegas at the the time for work and because they were my first rock concert in 1986. I also thought they couldn't hold it together long enough to get to a final state by state tour. I enjoyed the show. The theatrics and sound were great, but it was short at just over 90 minutes. It seems Steven and Joe (at a minimum) have a great amount of animosity among each other. I'm sure it's in the contact Joe gets to sign a song, after all
  20. I'm sure this is very true, but when the votes start, alphabetically, and say a Lamar Alexander, whom is retiring at the end of the year, start voting yes, the flood gates could open. As pessimistic as I am on most days, senators need to hear our voices.
  21. Many polls show Americans want to hear from witnesses in the impeachment trial. Please consider calling your senators 202-225-3121. also, this from yesterday...https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/22/davos-2020-cnbcs-full-interview-with-president-trump.html JOE KERNEN: Do I dare-- one last question. PRESIDENT TRUMP: Go ahead. JOE KERNEN: Entitlements ever be on your plate? PRESIDENT TRUMP: At some point they will be. We have tremendous growth. We’re going to have tremendous growth. This next year I-- it’ll be toward the end of the year. The growth is going to be incredible. And at the right tim
  22. Absolutely. The way evidence is trickling out, Trump may get a three-peat by November.

The vinyl-only release due on January 31 also contains five tracks recorded by Johnston while backed by Tweedy at Wilco‘s The Loft studio facility. Johnston, who died last September at the age of 58, performed two shows at The Vic in October 2017 while on his final tour. Johnston was supported by a different group of musicians in each city the tour visited and in Chicago he was b

  25. Nice recap bböp. This was our first Wilco show in 17 months and a great reminder of how much we missed them. I really enjoyed the tweaks and added parts on some of the classic songs and the distinct and gentle video enhancements. The show seemed to go just as Jeff planned with very few, if any, mistakes. The sound was very good from our spot in the 11th row. I was very happy to see/hear them indoors after our last few outdoor shows where the sound was very good, but loses some the oomph (IMO). I was very happy to have a crowd with enough energy on a Tuesday night to stand and yet be resp
