Wilco at ACL Live


We went to see Wilco last night at the new ACL Live theater.  It was a really great show.  I've seen Wilco before, but they played really well last night.  The crowd was really into the show, and, probably even more importantly, the sound last night was the best I've heard at any show in years.  The people who built that new ACL venure really knew what they were doing when it came to putting together a place with great sound and great acoustics (and it seems like they must have had great people on the soundboards as well).  You could hear all of the instruments and vocals very clearly, and the sound was really well balanced (in stark contrast to the Phantogram show at the Mohawk where everything was drowned out by the drums and low end). 
So just a really great show.  There were definitely a couple of goosebump moments (listening to the audience sing along with the chorus on "Misunderstood"comes to mind).   Wilco is probably one of the best rock acts playing live shows right now, and they were at the height of their powers last night. 
Thanks to Amy for going with me! 
Wilco, may you continue to rock for many years to come!
