Wilco‘s setlist last night at Merriweather Post Pavilion had something for fans of every Wilco. Prefer cowpokey Wilco, from immediately after the days of Uncle Tupelo? They played “Boxful of Letters” off of A.M. (“The record six of you bought,” said frontman Jeff Tweedy.) The netherworldly sonics of the band’s output from the last decade or so got their due, as did Wilco’s new album, The Whole Love, which is out tomorrow.
The nicest part of the night came during the encore, when Tweedy, calling him “the original Jesus of Cool, my hero,” brought out opener Nick Lowe for Lowe’s “36 Inches High.” “Pretty damn good for one rehearsal,” said a grinning Tweedy afterward.
If you couldn’t make it out last night, NPR is streaming the whole show.
