Gonna catch Wilco tonite in NYC. I am somewhat apprehensive. I've never seen them live and I am hoping they are in rock and roll mode. Their new album Sky Blue Sky is a little mellow for my tastes, the songs are nice enough, but "nice" doesn't exactly top my musical interests. Seems to be alot of music designed to smoke pot and fall asleep in the backyard to. Which, of course, isn't a bad thing.
Still, they have enough good songs in their arsenal that there is the potential for a good show since it IS NYC and we don't cotton to no laid back stuff. And alot of my peeps swear by em. And Jeff Tweedy & company do one of my favorite songs; "Passenger Side". Besides, any band that covers the Replacements, Ramones and Iggy is OK in my book.
And, I will be the guy yelling "Slayer"!
Here's some rare and live stuff you may not have...
