Wilco — 15-Feb-2008 — Night One

So... I'm in Chicago, waking up after the first night of Wilco's five-night stand at the Riviera Theatre. During this stint, they are endeavoring to play every song they've released on the official recordings, plus a smattering of b-sides, Mermaid Avenue tracks, and surprises.

I'm still reeling.

More thoughts to come later, but I really just wanted to dust off the cobwebs of this blog (contrary to what folks might think, I'm still breathing) and gather my thoughts on what will very likely be the one and only time that Wilco attempts such an undertaking.
Set list for Night #1:

Shot in the Arm
Side with the Seeds
You are my Face
I am Trying to Break Your Heart
Pot Kettle Black
At Least that's What You Said
What's the World Got in Store
