  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 fa
  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.
  14. Son Volt from this past weekend at The Pageant in St Louis, w/some Uncle Tupelo gems is up on Dime: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=587213 SON VOLT 3/18/17 THE PAGEANT THEATRE, ST.

  15. Great review, thank you very much! I'm hurting for a Wilco fix after reading all of these reviews, I missed the entire Star Wars run and now the Schmilco shows, all I know is they better announce Solid Sound 2017 soon!
  16. Hey Tommyjacobs, your site is down, I get a "web application could not be started" error along with all of the html code.
  17. I think I recall Tweedy saying in some interview a year or so after WTA was released that he wished he had paid more attention to the song order because he believed that would totally changed the way the album was received. He obviously took that to heart with the Whole Love.
  18. Lots of whining going on here, I did my share of whining too but it had nothing to do with what was going on inside the festival. First, our hotel lost our reservation which created an immediate stressful situation, they did rectify the issue and got us into another, more expensive hotel, which they paid the difference on, but it only had a single king bed, so my daughter had to sleep on the sofa hide-a-bed, which sucked for her and ultimately us. Next, when we went to enter the SS grounds the ticket taker told us that our tickets had already been scanned in an hour before. We had to talk t
  19. If they are still available, I'll take them.
  20. There's a David Lindley show from 5/22/15 that sounds pretty good from what I've heard. Just DL'd a Joe Ely show from 6/3/15 that is very good.
  21. Shortest 20 miles to Popejoy Hall in Albuquerque Longest ~2400 miles to N. Adams The nice thing after reading through this thread is that Wilco continues to remain accessible to the people by playing medium and even small venues and markets, So many bands with the popularity of Wilco just skip backwater spots and play the major cities.
