  1. Yep, they botched Staring At The Sun on the opening night of the PopMart Tour in 1997 and since then they have only played it acoustically. Stay (Faraway, So Close!) & Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of have both been played as acoustic, after their respective tour debuts in 1993 & 2001, respectively. I read about the Las Vegas Sphere shows and have no clue what they might do in that space. There are also rumors that they will also do a stadium tour in 2023: Europe in June/July & the U.S. in August/September. Not a fan of all that comes with a stadium show, but can’t w
  2. I agree with a lot of what you brought up here. I was also stunned by the dumping of Confess, Fletch. It only lasted a week over here too. I wonder how it did on demand. A friend of mine made a point that I thought of before he mentioned it to me. The past 2 (2021/2022) summer movie seasons have felt like the old summer movie seasons last seen in the early 80s. The release strategy of letting one big blockbuster have the weekend to itself with little to no competition in new releases because almost all of the counter programming is headed to streamers. Lots of weekends this past summ
  3. I loved God’s Country. It was a lyrical mood piece set in a small Montana town that focused on racism, sexism, abuse, authority, respect and privileges without hitting you over the head with them. Everything flowed organically. Thandiwe Newton plays a college Speech professor that is going through a recent loss and dealing with her grief, while 2 white men decide to use her private property to park their pickup truck to go up the mountain and hunt deer. This sets off a chain reaction of escalating events that results in one hell of an ending. 3 really well written scenes really stood out to me
  4. I hear the mention of acoustic versions and I cringe because I think back to past tours where they gave up on new songs way too early and turned them into acoustic songs. Or they kept other older songs in an acoustic version for way too many tours and didn’t go back to playing something closer to the original.
  5. Almost 2 years ago I read about Bono writing an autobiography. It seemed like something that was always inevitable. The rumor is that it’ll be released in early November. Surrender is the title which is a song off of War. According to Bono, a working title was 40 Tall Tales From A Short Irish Rockstar. Yep, 40 chapters each named after a U2 song. Of course, this being related to U2 they had to go off and re-record 40 songs to go along with the book chapters. I’m not a big fan of any bands re-recording songs, but I’m a bit intrigued. Will these be acoustic versions? The rumor is that
  6. I hate to start a new thread, but some cool news: both Wilco shows in New Orleans will be livestreamed for free for Nugs subscribers. That’s the 4th & 5th of October. 10pm EST.
  7. I haven’t seen any dates mentioned or rumored. The only thing that I’ve seen recently is this on their FB page today. It wasn’t mentioned in the email that came out yesterday, so you might have missed it, if the algorithm isn’t showing you every social media post.
  8. The Roadcases were released on July 28, but it was pulled almost immediately due to Far, Far Away having an audio glitch. I believe the song ended and the ending of the song repeated, according to a social media post. They should return to the Wilco store soon, I believe. If you count the Roadcase numbers, you’ll notice that there are 3 missing (93/94/95).
  9. Same here! I am looking forward to the sequel. The one thing that bothers me about watching it at home on Netflix is that there is no real barometer to measure it’s success. I know that they can tell who’s watching it. And a lot of their original films seem to have no real momentum. Beltmann, I have Pearl & Barbarian on my watch list. Maybe this weekend. edited for clarity: I felt the need to define success. I’m more interested in how many people are watching, as opposed to looking at box office receipts and counting the $$$. I feel that Netflix sends all of that stuff
  10. Well, here we go…I’m a sucker for staying up late on a Monday or Thursday night to see what hits Video On Demand on Tuesdays & Fridays. I knew that Greg Mottola’s Confess, Fletch was hitting this past Friday, so I rented it and enjoyed it immensely. It’s been 33 years since the last Fletch film and I’m not sure how the franchise can live on with such a limited release. I believe 2 theaters near me are playing it and that’s it. Plus, it’s on VOD. Does anyone else know that this was released? There was a time 20 years ago when Kevin Smith came close to directing Fletch Won with Jaso
  11. I was not at this show, but I found the setlist on WilcoWorld. It’s also in the same order on the “you can’t trust it” Setlist FM. https://wilcoworld.net/tour_date_type/15-sept-2022-santa-fe-nm-santa-fe-opera/ Handshake Drugs I Am My Mother Cruel Country I Am Trying To Break Your Heart Hints War On War If I Ever Was A Child Via Chicago> Many Worlds (coda only) Company In My Back Story To Tell Hummingbird Tired Of Taking It Out On You Bird Without A Tail/Base Of My Skull Jesus, etc. Impossible Germ
  12. Not sure if this is 100% accurate, but WXRT will be broadcasting the Sunday night show (April 24th) from Chicago on September 30th. I say not sure because the prior night was a Nugs webcast, but this might be the first time that this show is broadcast in conjunction with YHF’s deluxe reissue release day. Or is it really going to be the show from the 23rd? 🤷🏻‍♂️
  13. Sorry for the late reply, but I wanted to do a thorough check. I only see the July 8, 2022 & December 31, 2020 episodes on the Stuffinourhouse Instagram page. The page appears to be missing an icon to click on that’s on the Instagram App. It’s that little TV icon that hosts “all”of the past episodes. Maybe this is to force people to download the app? Edit: I should clarify that this is how it looks on my iPhone. Perhaps the webpage is different on a desktop. 🤷🏻‍♂️ The app is the first picture.
  14. Yep, I second that! I miss the days when Nugs would drop a new show every month, instead of the quarterly release plan that they’ve gone with. We won’t see another show again until the last day of November. Seems far, far away.
  15. September 6, 1998 - Promenade Park in Toledo, OH is the latest show. interesting to note that Casino Queen appears twice. I can’t see the show notes, so I’m not sure what happened there. According to Setlist FM, Casino Queen was only played once. edited to add info: Wilco’s FB post pointed out that they played Casino Queen twice at this festival show. Another dent in Setlist FM’s accuracy. 🙈
