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.


  • I'll probably regret not going to this as much as I regret not seeing Bad Manners at the frisco bath house...

  • I visited your site today and think we both could really benefit from exchanging links to each other. We could either do a reciprocal link or a three way link trade which would be most beneficial to both of us as it is a one way link to each other. Our site is

    With the three way link trade we would add a blog post on that linked to your main page and 2 sub pages via keyword. In return you would link back to The advantage to this is that you get 3 links back from in return for linking to

    Thanks for your time.
