Wilco Live at Troutdale

wilcobama.jpgWilco has had quite a year; finally nominated for a Grammy and the whole VW thing. Sure, they were nominated for best Rock Album, but nevertheless a good year. They are currently touring the world, excluding the Greater Los Angeles area, soft-rocking their way to stardom (see below). When Jeff Tweedy isn’t battling with migraines or stumping for one of the three idiots running for President (left) he is leading the way for independent bands and fans, in these days of corporate grasping of all things to make money off of all things or anything, towards self-reliance. While some will say it is Radiohead or Tool or My Morning Jacket that is the leader in Music right now, I believe the Alt-Country rockers from Chicago that are the ones leading the pack.

Here’s a bootleg of Wilco playing in Troutdale, Oregon (August 22, 2007) While their double-disc live Kicking Television is a staple for our weekend projects, my fiancé and myself have added this to our growing live set collections. This is possibly the best live audience recording I have ever heard; feels like you are sitting ten rows up, on a blanket, sipping on some high-end box wine with your lady. Tre chic!
