Wilco heard while you're out and about

Recommended Posts

One time I was getting pizza at the Boot (a bar in New Orleans, LA) around mid-day and they were playing "Can't Stand It"; they followed it up with the Shins "So Says I".

 

Other than the drunken "Jesus, Etc;" sing-alongs I incite whenever I can find it on a jukebox, I really don't ever hear Wilco much outside of my own record player.

Last weekend, Downtown and I were meeting some friends at Jason's Deli then heading over to see Colverfield. As we were waiting for Toby and "All the Young Girls Love", What Light came over the sound system.

 

"That's Wilco..."

 

"Really? I thought they were some kinda hard rock band. That's not bad."

 

Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

 

Downtown loves Styx and Barry Manilow.

 

I'm in love with a A Philistine.

I'd rather date a crack whore than a philistine, although it's tough to find a crack whore with taste.

I'll be sure to pass those sentiments along to Downtown. I am sure she will be amused (NOT).

too much crack whoring kills your taste buds anyway.

I heard "Dear Employer" (the Minus 5 and Wilco version) at the Dollup off Clarendon this morning. Extra nice since I'm quitting my job on Friday.

I heard Impossible Germany yesterday at Burlington Coat Factory.

 

Last weekend, we heard the same while grocery shopping at Publix in Tallahassee, FL.

two days in a row now, NPR has plalyed Wilco in between news segments. Someone must be a fan! Yesterday was "Spiders" and today was "Shake it Off."

Not necessarily while I was "out and about", but I heard Uncle Tupelo's "screen door" on the radio in Milwaukee today. This would be the first time I heard Uncle Tupelo on the Radio

I was at the grocery store today with my almost 5 year old daughter, Jaina who is totally into Wilco. We were about to head to the checkout aisle and Impossible Germany came on.

 

I got all excited to hear it, and I looked at her face, and she was just as excited, if not more, than I. She said "shhh! Mommy listen!" and then said "Wouldn't it be so funny if Wilco was playing that song here in concert?" I asked where they would be set up, and she looked around and said "over there by the bananas." Then she launched into dialogue about what "instruments" they'd play. Bananas, pizza dough, and corn chips would be their instruments. We stood there and listened to the rest of the song as she played imaginary banana drums.

 

So glad she was there to share that moment!

I'm sure they will be, kids tend to be pretty cool right from the start. Its just keeping them that way that's the trick! :)
