@8893 and others: how was Wilco?
It was a beautiful night and a great show. Sound was excellent. I was surprised to see that they are playing almost the same set list each show on this tour, which is very un-Wilco-like, but it is a very good and varied set list, and I was relieved that they are not playing more from the new album, which I don't love. The band seemed loose and in good spirits (with some nice Jeff crowd banter), and we got a bonus third encore of "Kicking Television," which they apparently hadn't played since 2014. As you might expect, ", Etc.," "Impossible Germany" and "California Stars" were among the highlights; and I always love anything off A.M., so I was happy to hear "Box Full of Letters."

Good summary here. I decided to go at about 5:45 that evening. It was definitely the right decision.

That Sacred Rose festival in Chicago looks like it has a great lineup
If I had known about it I would've gone but probably a good thing I didn't. Sounds like the festival was a disaster, nothing worked properly and concert goers had thousands of dollars worth of fake charges on their cards.

heard that, also heard they cancelled much of the last day because of a threat of storms that never ended up coming.

Van Morrison tonight. Tremendous show. Shorter than I’d like but then he is an old man. I think it was a bit short on hits, but still very good. The band was phenomenal. There was no encore instead Gloria went on for over 20 minutes, with solos frome everyone in the band that was the finale. The opening act was James Saunders, he was terrific He also came out for several songs with Van. Harmonica and a hollow body Gibson

We went to dinner beforehand and got in late and only saw their last three or four songs, but they sounded better and more interesting than I was expecting.

Nice. I see you got “Dweller on the Threshold” and “In the Garden,” two of my faves.

I believe you mean James Hunter. He’s been playing with Van for many years now, and also has his own band. He’s great. I recommend his own albums, too.

Two of my favorite bands of the last 25 years. I’m going to the San Diego show in a couple weeks. No BTS though. BTS is a little less accessible on first listen than Wilco but when the switch flips they are a truly spectacular band.

I went to see Greta Van Fleet last weekend in the Mohegan Sun Arena. I was easily twice as old as 95% of the people there. My kids got me into them and I gotta admit, I'm impressed. They have chops and play solid Rock and Roll. The kid who sings can belt it out and I was amazed at how effortlessly he sings. People like to pigeonhole them as Led Zep ripoffs, but as a monster Led Zep fan, I don't believe that's the case. I definitely see the Zep influence on their music, but I also see (hear) flashes of Black Sabbath, Rush, the Stones and even Ted Nugent to name a few.

With his childlike thirst for the nectar of life, Jonathan Richman’s show at Fairfield One was just what I needed as the weather is cooling and the day darkening.

Any concerts lined up for anyone?

April - Ryan Montbleau Band in Fairfield. Don't know much about him or the band, but their bassist is Marc Friedman, the bassist of The Slip, a favorite of another regular poster here. Back then, he was known for playing a Fender Fretless Jazz bass, which was my inspiration to get a fretless once I finished college.

August - The National in New Haven. Always wanted to see them live and picked up two tickets today. Also, will be first time at Westville!
