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.

Wilco Brescia Italy 2004

Since the beginning of the year I've been searching around for a great Wilco set to share and I've finally found it in this 2004 set recorded in Italy. I love this time for Wilco, post Jay Bennett and pre Nels Cline, Jeff Tweedy was handling the bulk of the lead guitar work and the spotlight was predominately on him. Wilco wasn't this incredibly refined machine then, there were rough edges and Tweedy may hit a wrong note here and there but dammit, the energy/vibe/feel was there. Not to take anything away from any version of Wilco (they've gone through some members), I love them all, but Tweedy's lead guitar work has always resonated with me. It reminds me of a version of Neil Young (something I'm sure he's strived for) and that ragtag filthiness will always be the sound I hear when someone says "Wilco."

Wilco Geneva Chicago

**THIS IS THE WXRT STREAM**

Another amazing night with one of the planets finest bands and lucky for us Chicago's very own radio station (the only decent one in the city really), WXRT, broadcast the sh*t out of it.

Wilco Fifth Third Bank Ballpark

The venue of this show was a curious one. This minor league baseball stadium located in the Chicago suburbs was a pleasant surprise though, despite some of the worst concert traffic I've ever seen upon entering. Wilco really played the "Dad Rock" card with this place though, located in the suburbs, kids under 4 got in free, sort of funny.

Andrew Bird opened up for Wilco, which is always a treat. Unfortunately I don't think his sound translated all that well in the open space. I was pretty darn close (front of soundboard, off to the right) and I definitely had a hard time picking up the intricacies of his sound. Pick up his new album though, Break It Yourself, is a great record.

Wilco Chicago July 8

Wilco were on point and in good spirits, Andrew Bird came out a few times to lend his beautiful violin to a few tunes (gotta love "Jesus, etc." with a real violin) and of course we got the pornostached (inventing words!) crew member enthusiastically banging a cowbell during "Hoodoo Voodoo." What a beast of a song too, Nels Cline and Pat Sansone trading licks. I'm going to go on record saying that Pat Sansone might be my favorite member of Wilco. He's very unassuming, usually doing his thing behind a barricade of keyboards, but when he comes out with that Telecaster, all eyes are on him. The dude shreds with the best of them and I'd really like some solo material out of the guy (solo, not any of his other projects).

But, my words certainly won't do Wilco justice, give her a listen and hear for yourself.

Wilco 1995 Nashville

I'll be catching Wilco this Sunday in the Chicago suburbs and I couldn't be more excited. It's been a while since I've attended one of their shows, last December when they did their "Incredible Shrinking Tour of Chicago" I ended up giving up a few nights of Wilco tickets for an absolutely incredible week in New York to interview Futurebirds and see My Morning Jacket at Madison Square Garden.

Anyways, this is an EARLY set from Wilco and it's amazing to see how much they have evolved. I'm sure at this stage in their career they had no idea the impact they'd have on American music (and music in general).
