  1. It really is crazy that the band shelved Kicking Television for so long given what a powerful and memorable late-set/encore song that it is. Even crazier perhaps is that it was left off of AGIB (& yet we get 21 tracks of Cruel Country... but don't get me started on that). Anyway, I appreciate the recaps, as always! I'm bummed to have missed the band on this tour and with no Wilco gigs on the calendar it's a nice consolation to follow along here.
  2. 100%. And they need to record outside of the Loft, otherwise we're in for more and more of the same. Which I think is partly ok, as I like the last few Wilco/JT albums, but there's no denying that their level of comfort is producing some ughh... redundancies? A personnel shakeup could be helpful.
  3. I did wonder if, in the spirit of the Cruel Country release, the band would come out Friday in their Nudie suits. I was browsing some of my old SSF photos and found this one of Glenn's shirt from a 2013 exhibit, which I believe is the same one he wore on Friday! Yee-haw!
  4. Now this is the sort of content that keeps your readers coming back show after show! (And I'll cosign these requests!) Hope to say Hi today.
  5. I have not felt terribly disappointed having missed out on Wilco/Tweedy shows over the last two years (and have opted out of most of the shows going forward too), but missing out on Jeff's solo run at Largo does sting a bit! It is a special room and it's been clear to me the few times I've been fortunate enough to be there that that's felt by both the performers and audience members alike. Paul - did Jeff make any indication that the new songs are on the forthcoming Wilco record, or did you get the sense that they are new songs are in their very early stages? I learned a lot about Jef
  6. Good afternoon. I noticed you were able to get a refund for your Jeff Tweedy tickets at BK Made. I was wondering if you could let me know how you did that since I am unable to attend that show. Thanks!

  7. Edit: These are gone. Returned to Brooklyn Made for a refund. I've got a pair of tickets FS for both nights. Each pair is $244.78, which is face value. I'll transfer the tickets in the DICE app, which is how I purchased them. Please PM if you're interested. Thx!
  8. Nice writeup, Bbop! I'll add that I found Jeff to be in an especially good mood. Venues like our Harbor Lights don't really lend themselves to intimate performances but it sorta felt like one in a surprising way. Maybe because I was up close, but I think that that feeling is largely due to the way Jeff was reacting to the crowd - through call and response or the little gestures he's known to do. (As an aside, I can't believe Jeff wore the denim jacket all night. I was sweating for him!) Anyway, a fun first rock show back. A hat tip to S-K too. I enjoyed their set a lot
  9. Wilco & Sleater-Kinney: It's Time - Summer 2021 Tour Aug 25 • 6:00 PM Portland, ME — Thompson's Point 2 General Admission Tickets Will be transferred via Ticketmaster Paid $121 for the pair, asking $100 OBO. Please PM with any questions. Thanks!
  10. I have to say, it was a rather poignant experience watching The Tweedy Show on my phone -- my primary source for "live" music for the past year -- just moments before the show came to life before us. It was an emotional experience, for sure. Just two stray thoughts: 1) I'm digging the new one, Story to Tell, which is a real doozy: "I've been through hell / on my way to hell / I only fought with myself / so I'd have a story to tell" and 2) I'm much too lazy to substantiate this claim with actual research, but a reaction I had after the show is that the set was largely comprised of
  11. I'll be there! And no, Joe was involved in a fatal car accident with a motorcyclist. "Assistant Berkshire District Attorney Stuart Weissman said the state believes Thompson's vehicle was traveling in the wrong lane before the collision. He said physical evidence, including the position of Fortier's body and the position of his motorcycle and other debris, support the state's theory." https://www.berkshireeagle.com/archives/judge-rules-vehicular-manslaughter-case-against-mass-moca-director-to-continue/article_634acc3c-96f8-5a7d-9b16-4cee278307dd.html
  12. I'm really on the fence w/r/t the Mass Moca show. I don't like that 1) members will get a "preferred viewing area in front of the stage," and 2) the allegations against Joe are fairly strong at this point and it's strange that Wilco HQ have continued to sing his praises and collaborate with him as though those allegations don't matter.
  13. Thanks again for the recaps, @u2roolz! I had been maintaining a Spotify playlist of all of the cover songs played during TWS but had neglected the whole thing for the last month and a half. Thanks to your recaps I've gone back and added all of the songs I'd missed.

    I finally got around to listening to the LPs. They sound nice, despite being warped (signature GZ quality control). Cool gatefold, though. Were the little blurbs from Jeff and the contributing musicians in the magazine when the CD was released? To be honest, I'm not sure I ever opened the magazine.
