  1. I was going in to 8th grade and saw Heart open for Loggins & Messina August 1976 at SPAC with my sister, I was a huge fan.
  2. Ode to Joy? Wilco should have just named it Sky Blue Sky II. When I first got on VC in 2008 SBS was still taking a beating from many hardcore VC'ers, I didn't get the criticism then, and I don't get it now. Wilco is band that been around the block, lyrically, sonically and personellwise, and they can make any album they want to, hell they own the damn label. I guess folks expected light-hearted poppy tunes with lots of hooks and clever lyrics given the title "Ode to Joy", but no, the band goes and throws out a curve ball maybe hoping the fans can rise to the occasion and appreciate the fact that they're not sitting back on their laurels rehashing the familiar. I trust Tweedy and the boys to know what they're doing, and Ode grows on me with every new listen. If you're not into it, that's cool, just think of it was as an experimental album of deep cuts.
  3. Same here, but there it was when I opened the mailbox, there is hope.
  4. These sound like solo songs.
  5. It's Just that Simple, sorry John. I wish you'd write and sing more Wilco songs but this one is just not good.
  6. Negative. The place had pretty well filled up by nights end.
  7. Excellent! I think we're row B center, also gray. Tentatively, we'll be at the International Bar beforehand, 4 of us, if you want to join the fray.
  8. Thanks for the review WYWU, it was a fun show, even funner since we had third row center seats, that never happens! The band was very animated, Jeff was all smiles and John was jumping around like crazy! The crowd seemed really into it, way more than in 2012 the last time they played the opera, when the crowd sat nearly the entire time. My only disappointment was they didn't play my request, ELT, that my wife and I requested everyday since we bought the tickets, oh well, maybe some day they'll play it again. On to El Paso!
  9. "Something in my veins bloodier than blood" - Plays well with my obsessions, one of which is Wilco "You have to learn how to die If you want to want to be alive" - An existential truth...
  10. 3rd row for Santa Fe, 2nd row for El Paso!! Wilco loves you baby!
  11. Leaving the desert heat for cool green western Mass, this will be our fifth SS and our son's first, can't wait! Hope to meet some of you on Saturday!
  12. This recording, which is up at Owl & Bear (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B5xZV5X8KwRCa013QUNwTm9PX3c) is prestine, I'm listening to it right now.
  13. I'm sure a collective memory for many here, standing in the pouring rain while the band played Radio Cure and the power went down for a second and the audience totally carried the moment, "Oh distance has no way of making love understandable". It was a moment of pure glory.
