Wilco

Wilco opened its weekend stand at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday night with a an elongated and frustratingly static version of "One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley's Boyfriend)." The song, a fitting album closer to 2011's "The Whole Love," set a lifeless tone for what began as one of the most dispassionate Wilco performances in memory.

Happy birthday, “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”

There's not much left to be said about Wilco's magnum opus, "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot," that hasn't been said in the past 10 years. It's a masterful collection of 11 pop songs that touches on nearly every subset of "rock" music -- folk, country, alternative, noise, prog, metal -- it's all there, and it all works.

Live review: Wilco @ the Fillmore Auditorium

On Thursday night at the Fillmore, Wilco proved that yes, its most recent studio material can stand up against its hallowed back catalog. Indeed, new songs like "Art of Almost, "I Might" and "Dawned On Me" charged forward with ferocity, and could have easily been mistaken for "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" B-sides.
