Congrats Rob. This looks great - and the calender thing is much better than the listing of dates on wilcoweb.

Now, after the first shows are over, downloaded and burned on CD, I would like to give my kudos to you again, Rob. The work you are doing on your site is absolutely wonderful, and I don't even want to imagine how much work it actually is for you :unsure:

 

So THANK YOU again, from the bottom of my Wilco-addicted heart :worship

Well, I'm actually working on it right now! You caught me.

Just added a setlist scan from the 9:30 club show.

Well, thanks to some suggestions from Chandler, Wilcobase has a new page with others to follow shortly.

 

The new page is called Played/Not Played. You can search for songs that were played or not played in 2 different years. Check it out and let me know if you have any issues, or if you have any ideas for similar types of pages.

 

Enjoy,

Rob

Well, if you thought that was cool, you are really gonna love the "Every Time Played" page.... go check it out.

 

Again, thanks to Chandler for the idea, and many others here who helped me by testing out early versions of these new pages.

 

:cheers

Well, I've added another new page to the site.

 

For lack of a better name, this new page is called Setlist Matcher. It lets you pick up to 5 songs, then it will report back with every setlist that contains all your songs.

 

Give it a try, and let me know if you have any problems.

I'm pleased to announce the latest addition to wilcobase.com -- CDR Artwork archive!

 

You can browse the artwork HERE

 

Huge thanks to the initial group of cover art artists. They deserve all the credit for the artwork -- 303 CDR covers and counting!

 

If you have artwork you'd like to contribute, use the Contact e-mail on the site. Enjoy. And as always, if you see anything strange, or are having problems, drop me a line.

For those of you who don't know, I run the Wilco setlist database at wilcobase.com. In addition to setlists, I like to include pictures from as many shows as possible.

 

There's been tons of pictures posted here recently...

 

I've tried to keep up and contact the owner to get permission to post them on wilcobase.com, however, I just can't keep up. Also, sometimes it's difficult to find all the pictures since they get mixed in with the After The Show discussions.

 

So, here's what I'm proposing... If you have pictures of Wilco shows (recent or otherwise), and you wouldn't mind having them included on wilcobase, I'd love to hear from you. You can post links to your pictures in this thread. If you don't have the ability to post the pictures online, just post a message here, and I'll contact you and we can make arrangements for me to host the pictures.

 

Here's a link to the recent pictures I've added to the site to give you an idea on how it will look when I include your pictures:

Thanks,

Rob

Just thought it mught be useful to have your message in a pinned thread :cheers

Looks like it's been awhile since I've posted an update here, so....

 

I've been working alot lately on the Songs Played page. I've just added the ability to sort the columns and also the ability to view songs by TOUR. This is the first time I've added Tour information to wilcobase, so check it out and let me know what you think.

 

I've also just used generic names for the tours. If you know of any "official" names for the tours, please let me know.

 

Also, as always, if you have any ideas for something you'd like to see on the site, drop me a line and I'll do my best to get it added to the site.

Woow, all these pages and additions make more and more complete the Wilco database, and you have added them so incredibly fast and fitting in the proper context you should be proud of it. There is so much stuff now, I don't know how to start with... :dancing

Hey everyone...

 

I've just updated the Google Earth file containing placemarks for all the venues Wilco has been to over the years.

 

If you can spare a few minutes, I'd appreciate any help in checking these and correcting any mistakes. There are still many venues that are just located in the correct city but not anywhere close to the correct street address. Take a look at the venues you've been to, or the venues in your hometown and let me know if they are incorrect.

 

Here's the link for the Google Earth file: http://wilcobase.com/wilco.kmz

 

In case you don't have it, you can get Google Earth from here (Windows & Mac OS/X): http://earth.google.com/index.html

 

You can post corrections back here, or e-mail them to me at feedback@wilcobase.com

 

Thanks for you time and your help.

The other day I got a suggestion for a new Stats page, since it's been awhile since I've updated the site, and since the recent tour just wrapped up, I figured it was a good time for a site update.

 

So, check out the First/Last time played page: http://wilcobase.com/first_last_time_played.php

 

Like I said, this page was a suggestion (thanks Zach!)... if you have anything you'd like to see added to the site, don't hesitate to drop me a line.

You know, on Crowesbase they have this deal called "C H R I S ' I S M" - maybe we could have such a thing someday - and then people could just read something Jeff said at a show - instead of tracking down a tape of it.

Hello everyone...

 

It's been awhile since I've been around here, so an introduction may be in order. I'm Rob, and I'm the guy that takes the setlists that get posted here and/or e-mailed to me, and puts them into a database and hosts them on wilcobase.com. I've been doing this for about 3 years now, picking up when Jane stepped down from the Timeline. Wow, looking back on it, it's been almost exactly 3 years -- 5/17/2004 was the first official post... Happy Birthday to me. :cheers

 

Ok, that's enough ancient history, fast forward 3 years... 2007. I haven't been around VC very much lately in the recent months. I've been in contact with a few folks from around here via e-mail, but that's about it. Today I got an e-mail from Jeremy, checking in with me, and saying he thinks I've been getting a bum wrap on VC. Not having been around here, I figured I better stop in and see what's been going on.

 

So, yeah, I've had a hard time keeping the site up to date, I just posted the AUS tour setlists last week, and up until tonight, I didn't have any of the EUR tour dates entered into the calendar. Not that I really need to explain why, but I'll come forward with it anyways. I've been working on a huge project at work. I've been basically working 6 or 7 days a week on it since as far back as I can remember. The project was for new video scoreboards for the PGA TOUR to be used at THE PLAYERS Championship, which wrapped up last weekend. The 3 weeks leading up to the tournament, I was working at least 13 hours a day. As if that wasn't enough... I got married at the end of April. :wub

 

So, I hope you can understand that updating setlists on wilcobase.com just had to slide until I got through these 2 very important events in my personal (now public) life.

 

Going forward, I hope to be able to keep up with the setlists. As soon as I receive them I'll try to get them posted. Adding in updates to artwork, shows reviews, posters, etc. whenever I have the time.

 

There are some things everyone here at VC can do to help me get things posted sooner. First of all, I don't have any inside information or contact within the band. I rely on fans like each of you to post setlists. If you post a setlist to VC, it would be a HUGE help to me if you could also drop me an e-mail (feedback@wilcobase.com). I may not be able to get onto VC each and every day, but I do check e-mail. The same also goes for concert reviews, photos, posters, etc. If you post something to VC, please also drop me an e-mail. Often times, the photo links get lost on page 5 of 10 in the After The Show forum threads.

 

Ok, so that's quite enough for now. Thanks to those who defended me in my absence... I haven't seen many of you for quite awhile, but it's good to know you're still around these parts. Hopefully we'll meet up somewhere out there on the road.
