Tonight's show to be streamed on Wilcoworld!!

http://www.wilcoworld.net/roadcase/index.php

Thanks for that. I'm lucky to be going, but I passed that to a friend who is happy to be able to listen. I see that they say the stream begins at 7. What should we read into that? An early start, or do we still think they're on at 7:30?

Cool that it will be streamed tonight. I see there were downloads of first two nights from tapers. Anyone see nights 3 and 4 anywhere?

Check the threads for those shows. Night 3 is available.

 

Edit: I see someone beat me to it.

my favorite show to listen to is actually the last show they played it, 9/04/03. it's a board, and it's such a tight show.

 

One of my favorite shows ever. The version of Not for the Season from this night is fantastic. If I remember right it also had a killer Handshake Drugs and Cars Can't Escape.

Is there a harder working band than Wilco right now? Is there a band with more love for their fans than Wilco? They treat us right, oh, they do. Streaming their albums, giving us free downloads, and then doing shows like this and making them available to listen to. One of the coolest things I've ever heard a band do (not to mention the fucking Living Room Shows, which are bar none the coolest things ever). They deserve something a little more eloquent (and as a writer, I should be able to provide it,), but, alas, no such luck. Instead, I just want to extend my heart felt thanks to the band if they read this, and let them know that I speak for all of their fans when I say "Thank you."

 

And I mean, is there a better way to end the residency than "Dreamer In My" Fucking "Dreams"?

 

Give these guys a hand, please.

Some standout tracks from tonight:

 

Pieholden Suite- no explanation needed

Blood of the Lamb- this song blew me away with all of the subtle nuances and layers of little sounds.

Less Than You Think- the song is beautiful, and I actually really enjoyed the drone (AB added a lot to it! :wub )

I'm thrilled with everything played on all nights, but I was really holding out for Secret of the Sea and Someday Some Morning sometime. Two fucking amazing MA tunes that deserve to be played.
