Wilco, 2009 July 21, Royal Oak, Michigan

Recommended Posts

Wilco does not allow Soundboard patches, although it appears to happen once in a blue moon. We put up all the Wilco and related recordings we can get - regardless of the year or tour. We are not interested in the sound quality of shows (or I'm not, anyhow), but rather archiving all the shows we can get. Of course, some sound better than others.

 

People who want to bitch about the sound of AUD tapes should remember we are lucky to have them in the first place. If you listen to more shows than just the show you are after, you will grow accustom to the sound. I think in the beginning people freak a little due to the fact that they have only heard polished up official live album releases.

 

It is also to important to remember that not all Wilco shows get taped. We have many blank spots on our list - for just the last tour alone.

 

 

 

Analogman...as usual you have hit the nail on the head or head on the nail.......I think that I do have just about every show that has been out there and I am missing many shows. I just did a quick count and I have over 490 shows on over 200 gigs on hard drive space...all backup up. The only SB shows we get these days if it is a webcast or on radio from Europe (with DJ's talking).

I recognized one of the "choir" as Erin from the living room shows (God, I feel like some kind of cyber stalker or something).

 

Not to much to add. Just an incredible show. The best of the 1/2 dozen or so I've seen.

Yep, a fantastic show. I've never seen them having so much fun up there and the songs just kept coming.

 

Also, I think future Wilco setlists would benefit from these songs taking a hiatus:

 

IATMWLY

IATTBYH

HMD

Handshake Drugs

Jesus Etc

 

I used to think the same thing too, but after seeing them again last night, those songs are just so fun to sing along to. And getting to see Jeff absolutely tear it up and stomp about the stage on I'm The Man Who Loves You is great.

 

Great meeting all you fellow VC folks- Paul, Jen, Chris, Erin, and Kalle.

 

By far the best show I've been to. Great crowd, great energy, great set, great show. Couldn't have asked for more.

As others have said, this was probably the best show I've seen. The small venue, the enthusiastic crowd, the incredible setlist, the band seeming to really enjoy themselves -- it all made for a great evening.

 

A couple of other funny moments -- during Kingpin, when Jeff was working to get the audience to participate he told us if we didn't we would regret it when we get old (I think 87 was the age he picked). And then he started mimicking an old man, voice and all, saying his only regret in life was that he didn't shout out at that Wilco concert so many years ago. And I also had to laugh when he was getting on the crowd surfer's case -- he said you must be the stupidest guy ever -- nobody caught you the first time so why would you think it would work any differently a second time??

 

I've been wondering why they don't play Country Disappeared -- I love that song and would have really liked to hear it. Oh well -- can't complain with 7 new songs! :thumbup

I am speechless. Literally. My voice is gone. I left it at the ROMT. I've never had that much fun at any other Wilco show.

In A Future Age and the rest of the Summerteeth songs were such a suprise and treat. Fortunately, we were up front so the crowd chatter was not an issue during the quieter moments.

Great to see everyone again - a nice Residency week reunion of sorts.

P.S. Your picture that Erin took with Mr. Cline looks great!

Dude! :D

 

Didn't get to say goodbye to you or Stacy. Seriously couldn't have asked for a better time with friends and our favorite band. I loved turning around every few minutes and seeing you rock out. It's been too long since our last concert together!

 

Let's do it again this weekend at The Wrens! :cheekkiss

My favorite bit of JT banter was definitely when he started the encore with "We'd like to thank Wilco for opening" and then stacked the gag one higher by inviting them out on the stage to join themselves. :)

Well, I think you need to chill out with your lectures to people... I mean it's OK for people who aren't taping experts to make observations and inquiries about the sound quality of late. I didn't see any "bitching" in the posts... also, there is no need for you to lecture people for asking whether or not a recording has surfaced. It is also OK to wonder where a show is, especially if you don't know all the places to check. This lecture about "bitching" makes it seem like we are all ungrateful to the band, and that we should be sorry for not being as saintly and thankful as you.... Obviously we are grateful that recordings are available.. who wouldn't?!?

Anyone who is bitching at Analogman about bitching at people who are bitching... needs to chill the hell out. Whether you consider his posts lectures or not, he provides valuable information to people, as well as providing major service to anyone interested in getting these shows.

 

You may be interested to know that there is an "ignore" feature on this board. If you're so bugged by someone, feel free to use it. Oh wait, how do you do use that feature? Well, I didn't know, but I happened to read a very informative post about it earlier today: http://forums.viachicago.org/topic/40944-ignore/page__p__1350534entry1350534

It's not a lecture - just an attempt to answer a question. I understand that people don't know, that is why I try and give an answer to their question.

 

But I will say there is not even really a reason to even ask for new/recent shows these days. Just watch the section of the board where BT and B&P are talked about. If not that, then check out bt.etree.org, Dime a Dozen, and The Trader's Den, as that is where you are going to find 99 percent of the Wilco shows posted.

 

It is, however, rude to keep starting threads asking for new shows, and/or posting in them over and over again - asking the same thing.

 

If something is not on the first page, do a search and see what you find. And I will say this once again, sometimes shows appear soon, later, much later, and/or never.

 

I won't bother with the rest. I figure we've already ruined this thread enough.

 

Oh - and of course I overdo it. No doubt about it.

More importantly: I know one person has said that pictures will be posted, but was everyone else really scared off by the "no cameras" rule???

 

This show sounds epic, I'd love to see some photgraphic evidence. :dancing

Awesome show last night... my ears are still ringing this morning.

 

A couple of random notes:

 

- Saw Glen after the show going to the bus, and someone was talking with him about how they hadn't played one of the songs in the set in 5 years. Anyone know which song this was? Summer Teeth? Reservations?

 

 

It has to be In a future age i love that song very jay bennett i think....

So by your own rules that you just stated... aren't you "bitching?" Also, for the record, I was completely calm when I wrote that post... no chilling necessary. On a relevant note... I wish I went to this show

I had a good time last night and did record the show. To my knowledge I was the only one. The previous comments about the sound were pretty accurate. It is a boomy room with poor acoustics and it is reflected in the recording. Stan did a great job and after the first two songs, he got it sounding better, but it is just not an ideal venue for music. All that said, it is very listenable and besides, there weren't be any other sources! The torrent can be found on etree:

Yeah, the sound did get better after the first few songs. Jeff's voice was really low in the mix for the first few songs, I thought.

 

Thanks for taping.

Every non-Wilco (The Album) song played at the ROMT has already been played at the Chicago residency in 2008. In A Future Age was played at the Fox Theater about two years ago at least and Summer Teeth saw some action in setlists last year. Reservations is played pretty sparsely presently.

ELT was top requested for this show and they didn't play it, but we got plenty of Summerteeth stuff. I think Brooklyn got plenty of goods, man.
