Wilco reaches deep into catalog at Chicago show

Wilco wrapped up its North American tour this week, playing a pair of shows at UIC. I saw Monday night’s show, which went for more than two hours and dug deep into the catalog. The only albums not represented were either of the “Mermaid” releases.

The new songs worked in well with the older stuff. The guys opened (appropriately) with “Via Chicago” followed with new song “Bull Black Nova” and “A Shot In the Arm.”

“Yankee” and “Summerteeth” were well represented. Old songs like “Casino Queen” sounded a lot fuller with the current lineup. Great show overall. Since it wasn’t sold out, I was able to walk up close to the stage. And, yes, I was very excited.
