  1. Last night the Book Tour pulled into Boston. Moderated by WBUR Arts and Culture Reporter, Amelia Mason who asked wide ranging questions regarding Jeff’s childhood music buying strategies, rock journalism, first guitars, Jay Farrar and Uncle Tupelo. The interview went on to cover Susie, YHFT, opioids, anxiety and depression. This was then followed by crowd submitted questions. Pro tip tool, be sure to fill out your question upon receiving your copy of the memoir upon entry. We running late and I completely missed it. Jeff ended with 3 songs Having Been is No Way to Be IATTBYH Let’s Go Rain Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. 03/26/2009 was a great show too! An interesting night of banter and playing. Sherwin Moore Suicide Watch Series of Paint banter regarding the dismal weather, a perfect night for a Jeff Tweedy concert. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think my perception of that exchange between you and Jeff was colored more by the conversation I heard on my way out. I know that for some Jeff’s banter has rubbed them the wrong way. But my overall take is that it is and has always been part of his performance. Even though he has even admitted that maybe he should just stop talking. I just hope he keeps playing for years to come. I especially enjoy seeing him solo in small venues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Burlington had the rowdies out in full effect. During Ohmme’s set I could hear them from my spot at the rail all the way towards the back near the side bar. Talking throughout the set and it was from the same direction that the spouting of dumb drunken yelp of “turn it up” came. To which Jeff shook his head and strummed his guitar and said, “ this is all there is, sir.” There were also some random nonsensical fanboy shouts of have “Golden Smog play Solid Sound” just as Jeff was stepping to the mic to start playing a song. The funniest banter from Jeff on the night was about how he had been carefully crafting his onstage persona for 30 years to become that of a pudgy middle aged man that refuses to get a haircut. I will say though that I think that Jeff crossed the line a bit from funny to being a dick with his questioning of an audience member about what he does for a living, to which the audience member stated he worked at the university, to which Jeff said that it was easier work, because no one knows what the previous employee in that position did and therefore the audience member doesn’t have to worry about comparison, whereas for Jeff he has to be compared to the likes of Bob Dylan. Don’t get me wrong, I love how masterfully Jeff makes quick work of the loudest drunks in the room on any given night. It is truly as much a piece of the performance as the music. However, while I think last night was another great show in the annals of solo Tweedy performances. It was also one where the uninitiated casual concert goer may have left feeling a little cold. As I exited I heard someone refuting Jeff’s argument saying that they were compared to the employee that they had replaced at work. As for the music, I was really happy with the three new songs, Bomb’s Above, Noah’s Flood, and “New Wave Theater.” The remainder of the set provided a well balanced setlist of songs from Wilco, Uncle Tupelo and Loose Fur records that we’ve come to expect at Tweedy shows over the years. All in all another stellar performance to be listened to and scrutinized for years to come. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I remember feeling scared and worried in the Spring and Summer of 95. I remember that Wharf Rat being talked about frequently and often referenced as one of the worst shows of the summer. I was fortunate to go out on the RFK shows, which were better, but even the Charlotte show in the spring with Hornsby which is considered one of the best of the year listening to the Scarlet is painful as he mumbles and bumbles.

  7. I find Saturday's set to be nothing short of amazing. When you consider it forced them to remove multiple staples from their standard set. I can't remember seeing a Wilco show that hasn't included a heavy selection of songs from both Being There and YHF. It must have taken some extra work to come up with that setlist.

  8. Sorry to hear, I wish you speedy recovery.
  9. Are you shooting this weekend?
  10. I'll be there today!! My first time to Solid Sound and first time seeing the boys since the 2014 Winterlude in Chicago. I'll be wearing a tie dyed izod and smiling. My first name is Andy, but Jackins works just as well. Have fun folks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Here's a shot in the dark, wondering if anyone has extras for the upcoming Courtney Barnett show in Cambridge, MA on 5/18. Looking for two tickets at face value.
  12. I guess it must be something to do with Nels' family?
  13. Last time these guys were touring Julian got sick and they had to cancel dates because Julian was sick. Tonight's show and the remainder of their short tour were cancelled due to an urgent family health matter. Anyone, know what's going on?
