the ablution block

29 March 2008

Wilco -Opera House, Wellington, March 24th 2008.

An amazing gig, perfect in every way, from the opening of Sunken Treasure to the smokin' ten minute plus encore of Spiders. Loud, thoroughly engaging, organised noise. These guys swept everyone away for two hours.

I can't quite find the words to express how good this incarnation of Wilco is, and I'm certainly not qualified to give any technical appraisal, but it was far and away the most amazing live performance - of any kind - that I've ever seen (thankfully, given it was my most eagerly anticipated also). I feel lucky to have been there.

Reviews of the performance can be found here, here and here.
