  1. Love the first quote by Jeff. Seeing the actual performance of a song you've heard hundreds of times since when your were a child is pretty freaking powerful.
  2. It's got an overall positive vibe, but the positive-ness doesn't feel fabricated in the least bit. When the band is playing together, they seem genuinely to be enjoying themselves. It's clear George would like more input, and we do hear Lennon talk about Allen Klein, which of course is the situation that eventually led to a fallout with the band & Paul, but that all happens after the Let It Be sessions. I couldn't take my eyes off of it for the most part. In Part 1, we see Paul in the morning, while he, George & Ringo are waiting for John to come in, sitting in a chair, loo
  3. I'd argue it's Wilco's most timeless record. A true classic. On the days that Summerteeth isn't my favorite Wilco record, Being There definitely is.
  4. Haven't upped my subscription yet, but I really like getting little notes & updates from Tweedy. Like how he thinks & he seems to have a really good heart.
  5. Torn & Frayed: Gram Parsons-ish. Like how it feels. Emotional Rescue: The bass line, drumming, Mick's falsetto....it grooves. Backstreet Girl: Beautiful sound. Like Mick's vocal.
  6. Wall Of Death is worth having, as is Love Is All Around, but I agree...hard to justify. Michael Stipe has been in the studio recording. Who knows when we'll hear it, but always exciting to hear whatever he creates. Stipe will also have the opening track on the Velvet Underground tribute album, out Friday, singing "Sunday Morning". Ten years ago, R.E.M. released their final song, "We All Go Back To Where Belong". Pretty wonderful, in my opinion. As is the video for it, starring Kirsten Dunst.
  7. Can't wait to be able to see this. Exciting to know that a talented filmmaker is helping shine a light on Jay Bennett.
  8. Wilco fans reading this who were at the KC show 11 days ago, and didn't get to see their favorite band play even ONE song: (I'm mostly joking. If I had the ability to see the guys for multiple shows, I'd likely quibble about some things as well.)
  9. I was at the KC "show", so I'd be happy to have seen ANY setlist. Wilco has a tough job pulling from a deep catalogue of great music, while also trying to please most fans that show up, and also pleasing the 6 band members. R.E.M. was similar. On their Up tour, I'd rather have heard Belong, Flowers Of Guatemala & Fretless than Man On The Moon, Losing My Religion & It's The End Of The World As I Know It. I'd like to see a song of just Jeff & guitar...Future Age, Lonely One, Solitaire, etc. Die-hards would go bonkers if Dreamer In My Dreams was pla
  10. Sleater-Kinney was GREAT. They really did make the most of their short set & their outward joy & enthusiasm in how they played was the highlight of the night. Love the guitar riff, drumming, and vocals of "Jumpers". Fun song. Credit for Wilco for the mini show on Instagram. It was noisy inside where we were, so really couldn't hear much from our phones, but 'A' for effort to the guys. At the end of S-K's set, soaked head to toe, I rushed to the merchandise table to buy a dry shirt, but for whatever reason the 2 workers said they weren't selling any longer.
  11. For an upcoming Virginia show, this true, but don't think it will be required tonight. (I could be wrong).
  12. Ditto! (No offense to Nnamdi & Sleater-Kinney, of course).
  13. (Hoping Wilco's management sees this)... Tonight's forecast shows heavy rain & storms creeping in from the North around 10:00. It'd be a bummer if Wilco's set got cut in half, so just throwing this out there...maybe the bands' start times can be bumped up?
