  1. Yes, the only reasonably priced option it seems (I already have a hotel booked in Williamstown)
  2. 3 day pass $199 "Friends of festival" $424 FOF + lodging at Tourists $3600-4100 !! FOF + Lodging at Williams Inn $2400!! College Residence Hall for 2 $585 (3 nights) The last one was $405 in 2019 which I thought was pricey for what it was - no AC, shared bathrooms, minimal furniture and bedding, but in North Adams
  3. Tanglewood 2008, superb. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/wilco/2008/tanglewood-music-center-lenox-ma-4bd6cfba.html
  4. Yeps see you there. Believe there have been shuttles from NYC or Boston previously not sure though.
  5. I also have a special birthday next year and also from the UK originally! No public transport, believe there have been shuttle buses sometimes to popular areas nearby I have been twice, first time I stayed in a motel in Wilmington, Vermont which was about a 25 minute drive away. 2nd time I stayed in student dorms in town, about 15 minutes walk away. That is a great location but no air conditioning and pretty uncomfortable rooms for quite a lot of money. I have heard this will be an option again in 2022. This time I have booked a place in Williamstown which i
  6. I saw that Jeff had announced the dates on fb around 10.30pm (Eastern), by 10.31 i had booked a (refundable) hotel
  7. One reply, guess this place really is dead or at least on a ventilator!
  8. I have 2 front of stage tickets, think they cost about $77 each including fees, I live in Canada, border still closed so probably best to sell them. Hard tickets I would like it if you also paid for mail costs with tracking. Send a PM please and post here.
  9. Has this been mentioned anywhere? Is this site dead apart from listing Tweedy Show content? https://mailchi.mp/b76b2c139f9b/solid-sound
  10. Should have been in love Misunderstood California Stars A Shot in the Arm Secret of the Sea Jesus etc The Late greats Impossible Germany Wilco (the song) I Might When the Roses Bloom Again RNG If I Ever Was a Child Love is Everywhere (Beware) focusing more on "hits" than necessarily my faves.
  11. Have to disagree, I find them rather dreary. The songs are there but lacking the magic that elevated them to produce a dizzy pop masterpiece. One can hear Jeff doing some of these songs solo these days, but his guitar playing is certainly more interesting now, as is his singing arguably.
  12. Normally ok if it comes with Canada Post, if it is UPS or something then all bets are off.
  13. Don't forget about import charges, you may be almost doubling the price! I guess you want the coloured vinyl, but the vinyl box set is $106 on amazon.ca (free shipping) and the CD set an incredbly reasonable $37. I pre-ordered both, may cancel the vinyl later though. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08H5DG744/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08H5DD75Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  14. There was a bit of Fleetwood Mac's Oh Well just before the end too.
  15. On an Android phone, tapping the screen removes the comments. Doesn't appear to be possible on an iPhone.
  16. Some are saying no shows (in general) until Fall 2021 (when there is hopefully a vaccine), which would also mean no Solid Sound next year
  17. Well it was technicallyTuesday as it started after midnight! Anyway performance is on Youtube and is very nice. Obviously recorded a few days ago though as Jeff had a beard.
  18. Excellent. Really jealous. In case it happens again, remind me how much it cost.
  19. I don't have the book, but may well get it. Doesn't the author also actually write stuff, give opinions etc. I doubt it is a book that consists exclusively of lists of which musician played what on each track etc It is also available in an electronic version at a much cheaper price for Kindle. Presumably this version can be updated as new information becomes available.
  20. Conversely. not everything has to be free. People have the right to try and earn a living. And it's not as if the marketplace is flooded with books about Wilco.
  21. I wasn't there last night, but could the person who got the California Stars dedication be Jay Bennett?
  22. And I agree with you about arenas, but I have seen them in big places opening for REM and Neil Young and they still brought it. I think they could be an arena band if they wanted that.
  23. Fair enough, have to say I walked out of there with a transcendental feeling last night, after wondering on Sun if that was still possible. It's also harder for it to happen for me when you see many shows close together. That's my personal feeling anyway (was my 5th since summer).
