Preferred B

Wilco -- 4/4/10, Providence, RI

Recommended Posts

I don't have the setlist, so I apologize right off the bat. If nobody else does, I know bböp will post one at some point. But I thought I'd start the topic for discussion in the meantime, and reserve his favorite title protocol.

 

I'd just like to inform Tamala that the rainbow SG was used for "Too Far Apart" tonight.

Great night! great show! and great seeing you and bbop tonight! safe travels!

 

Great to see you as well, sir! Glad you enjoyed the show, and I'll see you soon (I hope)... :cheers

 

Anyway, here you go...the complete setlist, as played, for the Providence show:

 

Not to respond to my own post, but just a couple of tidbits about the show...

 

*Got a glance at the printed setlist and they changed up the "acoustic" set a bit from what was planned. The printed list indicated this for the acoustic portion:

 

Spiders (Kidsmoke)

What's The World Got In Store

How To Fight Loneliness

Forget The Flowers

Country Disappeared

Laminated Cat

Passenger Side

 

*I think my favorite moment in tonight's show might have been a tie between Pat's Michael McDonald imitation at the end of Too Far Apart and Jeff calling Leave Me Like You Found Me "a piece of shit" while awarding one of the show's dinner gift certificates to someone who had apparently requested the song. :lol

 

*Mike's little synthesizer ode to the Easter Bunny was pretty great as well. I think he should flesh it out and put it on the next Pronto record.

 

*Hooray for Dreamer In My Dreams for the second consecutive show, this time with Nels on electric guitar (his Tele, I believe)! :thumbup

:lol I couldn't help cheering that. I mean ...

 

I'd say that Mike's Easter Bunny synth jam wasn't quite solo. It was an infectious little tune, and there was some other instrumentation toward the end there. If only we'd heard the "egg" version.

 

"What's the World Got In Store" was a treat to hear, and it sounded great. I also loved the full electric version of "Dreamer," beefing up the stripped-down version we saw in Montclair.

 

I wish I had more non-Easter time to explore Providence. As it is, I'm already looking forward to next weekend in Pennsylvania. (I think I'm spending every weekend from now until June in a hotel.) Dave, great to see you too! P, glad you made it through Bridgeport unscathed.

Another great show! Got my first She's a Jar last night!! Well worth the 3hr. ride from Long Island but I have to say that Lupos is a dump. I did however get a ticket on the street for $20.00. Next stop for me is Philly on Sat.

Just wondering, Is Jeff wearing sideshow Bob's shoes? Those things are huge.

Great show last night, and a cool venue for a show (despite the 100 degrees inside). This is my 5th Wilco show (6th if you count Tweedy solo show) and this was easily their best show so far. Cant wait to see them in Hartford Friday night!

Can you elaborate on Pat's imitation? Unless it was a "had to be there moment." Sounds hilarious.

 

As for Mike's synthesizer, I wish I could have heard that. He played this solo during "California Stars" at the Strathmore show in Bethetesda that sounded like a cross between one of those cheesy Hawaiian wooden flutes and a child's choo-choo train toy. Saw one of the crew in the wings raising up the devil horns after the solo while Mike winked at him... :rock

I feel vindicated for calling them clown shoes in the montclair thread. I was distracted the whole night (saturday) by those things.

I'll let someone else try to describe Mike's synth ode to the "Easter Bunny, but that organ solo during "California Stars" is pretty hilarious, especially when you're used to hearing the deep, rich tone of the Hammond. I guess it's some sort of pipe organ sample or something; the first time he used it, I think it even caught Jeff a little by surprise because he cracked up and sort of missed his cue to start singing again. :lol

 

As far as the Michael McDonald thing, it was just at the end of "Too Far Apart" when Jeff sings "Couldn't be any closer to you..." in that silly falsetto. In Providence, he asked Pat to help him out and give him a little impression of what Michael McDonald would sound like singing that line. Which Pat did. You sort of had to be there, I suppose, but it was funny. Pat also does a decent Bill Cosby impression, if memory serves.

Awesome show last night. It was a marathon, I was exhausted after the 3+ hours.

The circus organ sound in California Stars was hilarious in Richmond. Jeff got distracted, and after the song asked what it was. Mike played a bit of it, and Jeff did a little dance, saying "oh, that makes me so happy I forgot where I was." Then Mike Glenn and Pat did a very brief jam off of that solo. I still crack up when I hear it in the bootleg.

Great show... awesome!!

 

It is just amazing that they played for just over 3 hrs.... over 30 songs.... I can't believe that they have been doing shows like this all tour... It was more than worth the price of ticket... I would have paid a lot more for that ticket... I mean all Wilco was awesome!!

 

I can't wait until the show is posted online!!! I want to hear it again!!!

I thought Pat's piano solo on California was so amazing, even Mike seemed to be amazed by it, too.

 

Passenger and Minsunderstood were my fav moments.

HOLY SHIT, LAMINATED CAT!!! I cannot express how amazing it was to hear that song performed live, I was literally weak in the knees. Whenever I have a few months off between Wilco shows I think "there's no way they can be that good....then they top the last one. Can't wait for The Orpheum, then it's onto the Bushnell for me. Though I have to say...general admission at Wilco? Not much can top that. This was my 6th show (5 Wilco, 1 Tweedy) and there were many songs that I heard for the first time.

 

Wilco does love me, baby. What a treat!

Great Show!!!! :worship

Some thoughts

From UPSTAIRS (2CD ROW LEFT)

I thought the Singalong from upstairs was less than stellar ...

In Fact until ready for this?

The Last Few Songs it seemed to me no Group of people stood for more than a minute or 2

 

But that did not kill a fine vibe from the unison I could see on the FLR; the Band and the Flr seemed to be locked in :rock

 

 

But otherwise an VERY IMpressive Bunch of songs and the Band was Loose and Fun :thumbup

 

Great Warmup for My Tues/Wens

Yep, Pat did his very fine Bill Cosby impression in Clearwater after Jeff asked the crowd if they were all going to return to Ruth Eckerd to see the upcoming Bill Cosby show. One of several classic moments that night. :lol

What a fantastic show! Wife and I were standing 4 rows back directly in front of Jeff. Band seemed to be having lots of fun. Jeff seemed to be genuinely impressed with the level of crowd participation for Jesus, etc. Highlights included Laminated Cat, the generous number of selections from Being There and watching Mike go crazy on his keyboards with what looked to be a pillow. Many shows have a point where the energy level hits a zenith: Last night, for me, it was the second chorus of Shot in the Arm where for a moment (Bloodier than Blood) all the cosmic tumblers clicked into place.

Gracias amigo. I can picture Pat doing that now, probably almost as funny as Michael McDonald's appearance on Family Guy.

cool, i met that photographer @ the Spoon show in Boston a couple of weekends ago.

 

what did u think of that show? i wasn't all that impressed... deerhunter are a much better studio band, and i felt like spoon weren't all that memorable. britt has a great stage presence though-- but it felt like he was more or less going through the motions.
