Mandy, Sigmund, Kim, and Susan assess the lay of the land after entering Stubb's.
The Wilco show was really good. I'm not sure what to say about it, other than it was just a classic Wilco show. (If you've seen Wilco before, you kinda know what I mean- they have a sort of style that alternates between rocking pretty hard and being pretty mellow and laid back, with Jeff Tweedy rambling just enough to remind you not to take the whole thing too seriously).
Having just seen The Raconteurs last weekend, it was kind of interesting to compare the two shows. The Wilco show that we saw was a great show, and I would guess that it would probably appeal to a wider audience base, but the Raconteurs had a much higher energy level and sort of blasted their way through their set in a way that kind of left you stunned (but still pretty amped up) when it was over. The Wilco show left you more with the kind of warm, fuzzy feel good feeling that you get after having a good backyard party with friends.
I might go see Wilco again tonight. Maybe.
