Woah, damage control. It's somewhat bullshit when you catch a band this talented live. Also, while they are completely still in their prime. It makes you feel worthless relatively quickly. That being said - Wilco destroyed last night. And while that not be much of a surprise, what always shocks me about them is how effortless it seems to produce gold like that. Is that how I start out every review of a live show i like?

This was the second time I've seen em, not much. When I saw them the first time I remember leaving thinking I wished that is how every band put on a show. Played their songs, played the songs the cowd wanted to hear, but also used the live arena to morph the songs into completely new entities. Change the sound, change the approach, everything. They did that again last night, and with their addition of Nels Cline they are on a new plane of existence.

One of my favorite things about A Ghost Is Born is the massive sonic step up they took - even from YHF. This record incorporates all the things you love about Wilco plus huge fucking guitars, feedback, annihilated solos, skewed sounds essentially. While Nels didnt play on AGIB - live they had to get him to pull some of the stuff off. This guy holds his own in the ranks of the improvisation elite. (Just got a copy of the "4 Guitars Live" with him Lee Ranaldo/Carlos Giffoni/Thurston Moore - a beast of a noise exploration) Now Wilco adds him as ultimate shreader. Get your ass absolutely kicked on songs like "At Least That's What You Said" and "The Late Greats".

The setlist was great I thought. The crowd seemed to get bored with it at times but mainly those were the trust funders who were there b/c they heard about em at Bonnarro. But you know what, whatever, they were drunk and having fun so thats cool. Wilco touched on almost every album at this show and it definitely compared to the colossal first time they played at le Classic Ctr:

War On War / Sunken Treasure / I Am Trying To Break Your Heart / Kamera / Radio Cure / Shot In the Arm / How To Fight Loneliness / Not For The Season / Jesus, Etc / Heavy Metal Drummer / Pot Kettle Black / Red-Eyed & Blue / I Got You / I'm the Man who Loves You / Poor Places / Reservations // Encore 1: Hesitating Beauty / One By One / California Stars // Encore 2: I'm a Wheel / Passenger Side / Casino Queen / Outta Site / Misunderstood

(doubles in bold)

Best part of the night for me was Spiders as the closer. I was sure the show was over after the Encore because it was pushing 11 (classic limit). Fuck naw, they came out one by one and cranked up the kraut as hell deep ass groove jam sesh. Easily over 10 minute ending. Wilco is truly a prized American treasure.

Thanks to Thorn for the rememory.
