Wilco - 7/7/12 Sioux City, IA (Saturday In The Park)

Recommended Posts

Good show. Crowd was much better than Rochester. It helps that this was an outdoor GA show. Fun to see one of my favorite bands twice in a week.


We also must have managed to stay at the worst hotels in both Rochester and Sioux City. I'm on a 3 hotel stay streak of dumps. We saw Deer Tick a few weeks ago in Fargo and stayed at a dive there as well.

This was only my second Wilco show (they don't get up this way too much), and first with the present line-up.
I have to say it was a great show.  Me and my two boys were up pretty close to the stage. My only complaint was the lighting...other outdoor, night shows I've been to have had one or two spotlights to highlight the performers.  The only lighting was from overhead stage lighting, so it seemed as if JT was singing from the dark most of the show. This of course is not the band's fault.
We had to look at the big screen off to the side to see facial expressions, etc.
Like I said, small complaint.  It was giant thrill to finally see the band again, and I hope they take the time again soon to come up this way (IA/SD).
