Golden Smog, First Avenue, Jeff Tweedy

Golden Smog, the "super group" that consists of members from Soul Asylum, The Replacements, Wilco, The Jayhawks, Run Westy Run, The Honeydogs and Big Star. They were sort of an oddity, mixing comedy, songs from every individual group, and some bitching covers (Neil Young's "Revolution Blues" is below).

Gotta thank my man over at Ousterhout.net for this one, check him out.

Jeff Tweedy Wilco Vic Theater Chicago 2003

This is one of the best Jeff Tweedy sets I've ever encountered. Jeff Tweedy puts on a prime set and then is joined by Wilco for an 11 song, largely acoustic, set. The mix on this soundboard recording is really fantastic, a real pleasure to listen to.

I'm listening to a lot of Wilco this week guys. Hope you don't mind.

Got this over at Ousterhout.net, check it out.

Jeff Tweedy Philadelphia Folk Fest Old Pool Farm

PREMO set by Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Crisp sound, great set list, witty banter (Jeff is known for being particularly good at the latter) - it's got it all. My favorite track on this (streaming below) is a tune he wrote for Mavis Staples called "You Are Not Alone" - from the disc of the same title that he produced.

Speaking of things Jeff Tweedy produced - he just did a record for Minnesota based band Low titled The Invisible Way - which I think is their best work to date so check that out. It took me a few spins before it clicked, don't give up on it too quickly.

In sort of unrelated news I recently read that Jeff Tweedy has a net worth of 9 million bones. That blew me away, so, if you're lookin' for some Google searches later go ahead and plug that in.

Jeff Tweedy Solo Eugene WOW Hall

I woke up earlier than usual this morning and tossed this on for my hour plus ride in the car. Cup of coffee, dark road and Jeff Tweedy with an acoustic guitar. Very nice way to start the day. I'll probably have to break into some early Wilco this morning now as well. You ought to do the same.

What we have here is something that was posted more than 3 years ago and was never uploaded to The Treasury and given the last day or so, I found it appropriate to get out there again.

My main man Jeff out on the East coast was kind enough to send over some great Jeff Tweedy solo shows and after burning through those sets I started thinking about non-Wilco Jeff Tweedy and inevitably had to toss on some Uncle Tupelo, one of the original alt-country bands. Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy both cutting their songwriting chops singing about whiskey, failed love and...well...that's about it. But it was fantastic and set the scene for two of the best songwriters of a generation.

Jay Farrar went on to form Son Volt, New Multitudes (with our very own Mr. Jim James) and perform as a solo musician. Jeff Tweedy, well, we all know how that turned out. Wilco, Volkswagen commercials, the works really.

These are some of the earliest known demos of their work, something sent out on cassette tapes to radio stations and record label exec's.

But before either of them were alt-country heroes they were a couple of kids from Belleville, IL trying to make sense of the world around them. Enjoy this music, it has a special place in history.

This was originally posted in May of 2009. Since that was quite a while ago I thought it appropriate to repost this material, especially since it was now in The Treasury.

Here we have two nights of Jeff Tweedy at The Vic in Chicago, great sets.
