BUMPED: We now have audio! From the Madison Barrymore Theater. show Nov. 22 — very similar setlist, although slightly rougher as it was the warm-up for the Chitown shows. Listen to the new goodies:

* Let’s Not Get Carried Away
* Shake it Off
* What Light
* Walken


It was quite a treat to see Wilco last night, at what is most certainly my favorite venue (post-Lounge Ax) to see them, the large, elegant Auditorium Theater with its exquisitely updated sound system. I last saw them here in October 2004.

I’m sorry to report that for some reason *none* of the audio came out as collected for me to share with you, however, I will keep my eyes peeled for any recordings from the show — or of any of the new songs they performed on this mini-tour (I believe it was one in Madison and 2 in Chicago). Nels Cline was absolutely tremendous and his presence is felt on the new stuff — as yet untitled new album is expected in 2007 — even moreso than it was on ‘Ghost.” As per usual, Glenn Kotche remains the man — his solo in the hard-rockin’ Let’s Not Get Carried Away was tops. Excellent full band rendition of Remember the Mountain Bed and we were treated to two other Guthrie gems (ref. Mermaid Ave I & II — Airline to Heaven and California Stars. Apparently several new songs were also played at the October 19 9:30 Club show in DC, which can be streamed via NPR. Also, bassist John Stirratt rapped about the upcoming record a bit in this Billboard interview last week.
