Chicago 2017 [no label, 2CD]
Schmilco World Tour. Live at the Chicago Theater, Chicago, IL; February 25, 2017. Very good FM broadcast (digiskips inherent in the broadcast).
Missing one of Wilco’s hometown shows is a sin. If you’re a fan of Jeff Tweedy’s band of extremely talented misfits, then you know that the Chicago rockers tend to go “all out” when it comes to playing at home. That goes tenfold for whenever they decide to put on a residency-of-sorts, namely because they turn the entire thing into a colossal, can’t-miss event. Like back in 2011, when they staged The Incredible Shrinking Tour of Chicago, which saw them play the Civic Opera House, the Riviera, the Vic, the Metro, and finally, an unlikely appearance at Lincoln Hall. It’s quirky shit like this that makes them heroes here. This year, as they continue to support their tenth studio album - last year’s exceptional Schmilco - the band opted to shake things up with another feat for themselves: headline the iconic Chicago Theatre.
