** “Whereas, most Duluth bands have many of the following characteristics: 1) At least one band member looks like a musician-sized lumberjack; 2) Occasional use of banjos, washboards, spoons, second banjos, and/or fiddles; 3) Some sort of connection (real or imagined) with Al Sparhawk; 4) A musical style that could be in part described with the word “roughneck” (i.e. roughneck folk, roughneck blues, roughneck indie rock, etc); Whereas, it appears that Wilco (the band) meets at least a couple of these important characteristics … Now, Therefore, I Don Ness, Mayor of the City of Duluth, do officially proclaim Wilco as an honorary Duluth band.”

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrreat Photos. Nearly 2 yrs since I last saw 'em. Music budget a bit low after Jane's Addiction and Pavement tix. Concerts don't cost what they used to.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
So envious that you got to see Wilco. My husband and I were going to try to go to the Duluth show, but we still were in the throes of babyhood.
Go norse!
