The main reason Future Mrs. B. and I went to South Lake Tahoe this past weekend was to see the Wilco concert. Jeff Tweedy and Company did not disappoint! I do not have a setlist, but I think I can cover it in out of order fashion. The easiest way for me to do it is in order by album:
Wilco (The Album): Wilco (The Song)(opened with this), Bull Black Nova, One Wing
Sky Blue Sky: Side With The Seeds, Hate It Here, You Are My Face, Leave Me Where You Found Me, Impossible Germany, Walken
A Ghost Is Born: Company In My Back, Hummingbird, Spiders (Kidsmoke), Handshake Drugs, I'm A Wheel (closed with this song)
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot: I Am Trying To Break Your Heart, Pot Kettle Black, Jesus Etc., War On War, Reservations, Heavy Metal Drummer, I'm The Man Who Loves You
Summerteeth: Nothing'severgonnastandinmyway (again), A Shot In The Arm
Being There: Outtasite (Outtamind)
AM: Casino Queen
Mermaid Ave: California Stars, Hoodoo Voodoo
This is fairly accurate. It is all from memory, so I can't give out the 100% guarantee, but it is damn close. The one thing I thought was odd, is that they didn't play their new single "You Never Know." They played it on the Tonight Show a few nights earlier, but not in Tahoe. The other thing that stood out was that the show was pretty under sold. I would bet they sold out the show the night before in Berkeley (8500 seats), but I heard a Craps dealer say they only sold 2000 out of 7000 seats. While this may not be the most accurate way of getting info, the concert looked a bit sparse. It's disappointing that they didn't sell more, but to be honest, it provided for a more intimate show. It was quite comfortable.
Hey, Sunday in Tahoe may not be the most popular night to go to a show, but this didn't affect Wilco one bit. They rocked as hard as ever.
Jeff Tweedy was hilarious on the mic. He was joking about a few audience members sing-a-long skills. He gave the audience a lesson in how to clap "like you're at a Queen concert." He was also doing aerobics around the stage. It was a great show all the way around. What a way to celebrate a birthday! I'll say it one more time- go check out Wilco if you haven't already! It's an investment in time that you won't regret!
