Incredible show, especially Mountainbed and Please Tell My Brother, and the last half dozen songs. Nice meeting Donna and seeing David (bobdylansbeard) again.

Yeah, great seeing you! Funny too as I spotted you Friday, found a spot that happened to be behind you on Saturday, and then on Sunday I was a bit behind you and to the right too, but I wasn't able to wave to you. Great shows all in all.

Sima Cunningham's backing vocals were just gorgeous. Sunday afternoon was full of lovely surprises. Kinda bummed to miss Felice Bros (didn't get word that they changed location and time) but my fault for not doing much social media, I guess. Still get a smile on my face remembering Cibo Matto singing Madonna with Jeff. :)

I noticed this too and was hoping for it. Previously they did have some strong performers for the song. Levon...Mavis. Who sang it the other year?


it was part of the covers set. Holly and Jess from Lucius sat in.

I don't get the status of The Weight. Is it considered the best rock song ever?

It does have a timeless feel to it, but I'm glad they broke with that particular tradition. It made sense the first year with Mavis and it made great sense the second year with Levon, but I didn't think it made sense in 2013, since that song is not particularly associated with Wilco. California Stars is a more anthemic choice, I think, if they're looking for a traditional closer.

Ah yes, that's right. I was trying to place it on the last night not the first.


The Weight is an awesome song, but it's hard to top the original. Most covers cannot do it justice. Smart for Wilco do go with California Stars.


It was beautiful, and as we sang along, I slowly surveyed the crowd and stage one last time to take it all in. I was near tears because it's a beautiful thing being there with everyone at Solid Sound. Looking forward to California Stars two years from now.
