Wilco @Hammerstein Ballroom, June 25th

Welcome back, Wilco! Good to see you again, especially after that kinda tired show last year in Jersey. I love your new album, Sky Blue Sky, and have been listening to it non-stop. I enjoyed every second of your two hour set, which included a bunch of older songs like "I'm Always in Love" and a seizure-inducing "Via Chicago" from Summerteeth. I was happy to see Jeff doing his goofy dance again to "Hummingbird" and Nels and Jeff playing patty cake. I was especially psyched to hear the opening chords to "Impossible Germany" when you returned to the stage for the first encore.

Sure, there are always tracks I would have liked instead, but you put on a pretty rockin' show tonight. I am excited to see you tomorrow night at Warsaw.


PS -- Nels is a monster on guitar.
