— “everyone in the Wilco camp is doing ok, but there is some sad news.” Jeff is hesitant to mention details, but he does mention it in the episode.

 

 

I don't think this is speaking out of turn but John posted on Instagram that his father passed away.  He wrote:

 

"Thoughts about our Dad, Avery Stirratt III, who passed peacefully Friday the 10th from cancer. A dedicated family man, and source of stability and unwavering optimism for his family and friends. Lifelong New Orleanian, he and my mother busting their humps with 5 kids, and after losing her in 92, jumping back into music and the instrument, and for the next 29 years playing weekly with his NO banjos +2, up until his last show March 8th. Their weekly shows at usually restaurant venues, were a colorful mix of friends and NO cutups vying for the coveted vocal spot, a kind of Dixieland Karaoke. My sister Laurie and I could never ask for a bigger supporter for our musical careers, never heavy on advice, just providing that quiet affirmation of presence and enjoyment. Solid Sound(s), Hollywood Bowl, of course New Orleans and Chicago gigs over the years, and just last fall, pulling an 8 hour NO-Nashville drive the evening before our Opryland gig only to check in to the hotel, and walk straight to the venue to check out the Opry review, all at 88. Could not ask for a better supporter, father and confidante. Rest easy."

Jeff said that Jackfruit Brisket is his new stage name. LOL. I guess Scot Summit has long since retired.


Thanks for recapping these! I tend to catch a little each night but not all. We are fortunate that they are doing these each night.

 

I'm sort of curious if they'll ever cover a song from the last 20 years.

Didn't they do a Billie Eilish song last week?

I am listening to a 1995 show on Owl and Bear and there is a nice version of Reincarnation that has become the Tweedy Show ending credits song. I know it had been done with Golden Smog but hadn't heard a Wilco version yet.

 

Edit - dang looks like that link just goes to the full show archive and not directly to the song. Anyhow it is Track 21.

A couple of real surprises in that show for me. First, I’m amazed that Wilco was booked to OPEN for Natalie Merchant. Seems strange. And also, that was an amazing story about Susie getting handpicked to go backstage at an Elvis show. I’ve heard stories of things like that but I’ve never known anybody it really happened to.
