  1. I've recently discovered Tré Burt after meeting him after a show in November, and lately he's all I want to listen to. He was signed to John Prine's label in early 2020, and I can see why Prine was so impressed with him. The song currently stuck in my head on endless repeat is "Know Your Demons", but the rest of his output is just as good. Love his lyrics!
  2. I'll be taking notes from all the choices people come up with! Great topic idea.
  3. Ah, that voice! She leaves behind such a soaring, lilting legacy as a singer and songwriter. This one takes a chunk out of me, for sure. I'm glad she passed peacefully with family.
  4. What would Wilco be, without its stalwart bass player? It wouldn't be Wilco. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of rock's sweetest massive talents! We love you, John!
  5. I'm so very grateful for the music and the friendships that brought me here and kept me here, all these years. You're a great bunch of people to share life with. I like "coming home, Via Chicago". Thanks to all of you, for all you bring to this great human mashup. Have a glorious feast and appreciate the people you are lucky enough to feast with!
  6. Oh, damn! Not Wilko! I guess today will be a day to pull out all my Dr. Feelgood albums and blast them in his memory. Thank you Wilko, you were a treasure.
  7. On sale NOW for January 5, 6, 7 & 8 at Largo!!! See you there!
  8. Is it a one-off show, or are they touring, do you know?
  9. Too bad this didn't stay as intriguing as that first season. It sounded compelling!
  10. I haven't had the chance yet to see them live, but the reports of their live shows have always sounded so fun!
  11. This election night is bringing all of the joy and terror of 2016. I feel sick but I want to check the news. How are you faring in your location? It's 11:20 PST on election day, and it seems to be a very mixed bag. At least Fetterman appears to be winning. Please, can we get some humanity back into politics, rather than pure thuggery?
  12. We are living in insane times, and we all know it. I have voted my conscience and I hope the rest of you have too, by now. Wilco fans tend to be socially & politically involved so you've likely voted by now if your state allows it. How are we all handling the existential dread of this election? I'm pretty sure it's not just me. These are such dangerous times. But like Beto said, "We've got to try". The world is turning fascist and monopolistic around us and it feels overwhelming but...we've GOT to try to resist. Fascism is not what our founding fathers were after. In fact, these were
  13. Thanks for all the Halloween music, Chuck! I've always had a soft spot for Two-Headed Dog. It speaks to me!
  14. I have yet to make it to Washington state, but someday I'll look you both up and you can buy me a beer too.
  15. What a sad loss. He was brilliant. Made me laugh so hard at his "Beverley Leslie" character on Will & Grace. 😢
  16. This set of midterms matters like few others, and I'm trying to apply my scant funds where they will matter. I just donated a small amount to Val Demings because Marco Rubio is a little useless dweeb who needs to be gone. Who are you supporting? It's hard to know who to fund right now. I know it's the same for us all. Confusing as hell. I hope we have a reassuring November 8th (although I don't think we'll know results fully before about November 14th...) Anyway, I'm just curious to know where VC members are throwing their weight.
  17. Justin Sullivan of Night Shop last night. He never disappoints. A fast, fun, fabulous evening. He just gets better! SO good. A crack backing band, too. A tiny club (Gold Diggers, L.A.) full of people who were totally digging it. Pardon the pathetic photo; for some reason the club saw no need for front lighting on the acts!
  18. Ahhh that sounds like a fun night!
  19. Allison is a sweetheart & so talented! She's an L.A. local so I see her frequently playing in L.A. bands. Did you know she & Katie are "mirror twins", where their bodies are mirrors of each other, reversed compared to each other? I understand body organs can even be on the "wrong side" of a mirror twin's body. It's pretty rare. Google it!
  20. I'm a big fan of the talented Katie Crutchfield, who performs as Waxahatchee. What a powerful voice, both literally and figuratively. The songs she writes are resonant gems, the lyrics linger. Anyway, as much as I enjoy Katie's voice, I'm also a big fan of L.A.'s own Jess Williamson, a voice as mesmerizing as Katie's own, but very different. When Katie and Jess met and joined forces, I perked up my ears. Today I got my just-released copy of Katie & Jess's new album as Plains, called "I Walked with You a Ways". I'm still getting to know this music but already there are standout songs.
