Wilco performed “Whole Love” and “Dawned On Me”(web exclusive) on Conan.
Watch the videos below and pick up the band’s new iTunes session here.
I had always been under the impression that Wilco played an ugodly-long show. The last time they played Boston they played 39 songs, sure I wasn’t there, but I heard about it. That’s what counts right? I’d heard about these impressively long shows, an Evening With Wilco, essentially. I wasn’t treated to one of these insanely long shows, no. However, I was treated to a show that may be better kept at a modest(ish) two hours.
As I took my seat in a venue, a man and his wife came in, gestured to my concert buddy and I, and asked if we were pumped. Before I got to snarkily reply, “Yeah, pretty pumped dude.” he raised both beer-wielding hands in the air and yelled “WOOOO, NELS CLINE YOU BASTARD.” I didn’t understand it. All I gathered was he was in Dad-Rock/Plaid Dad/”You Call This A Date” mode.
It took me a while to be less uncomfortable about being the youngest person in the audience other than kids dragged by their parents for some weird Alt-Country bonding. Why did that guy call Nels Cline a bastard? Oh, too late, Wilco is on, thank god. Opening with the powerhouse “Art of Almost” the electronic meddling of the first three minutes of the concert eventually reconstructed into a Nels Cline shred-fest, as prog nerds in the audience collectively had spiritual crises.
Wilco would continue through their set, nailing the staples and the jams. Bouncing between the Beatles(Whole Love), The Doors(I Might) and Cash(Black Moon) they covered much new ground from their new record. Jam hopefuls were appeased by “At Least That’s What You Said” and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot zealots got “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart.” Everyone was happy, even Jeff Tweedy smiled a bit.
So, sure, not 3 hours and 45 minutes. Sure, the venue cut the band off before “Jesus Etc.” and “Via Chicago.” No big deal, almost every single song they did get to play deserved its well earned spot on the setlist. And by the end, yes, I did hate Nels Cline. No one’s hands should be able to move so dexterously on a guitar, you bastard.

Bob Dylan, Wilco, Brett Dennen and others are featured on the soundtrack of the fall – “Parenthood” – set to rock into online retailers on Aug. 31 (to coincide with season one’s DVD release on Universal Studios Home Entertainment) and in stores on Oct. 5 by Arrival Records/Scion Music Group (distributed by Fontana Distribution a subsidiary of Universal Music Group).
The album features 12 tracks all of which are featured or will be featured on the show, including the much talked about theme song – Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young. ” The physical CD also includes an exclusive version of that song sung by the iconic John Doe and rising star Lucy Schwartz as well as Schwartz’s “When We Were Young,” which is the international theme song for the show.
The talented artists who contributed to the soundtrack include: Bob Dylan, Brett Dennen, Amos Lee, The Avett Brothers, Corrine Bailey Rae, The Eels, Josh Ritter, Lucy Schwartz, The Swell Season, Wilco, Ray LaMontagne and John Doe & Lucy Schwartz. Liza Richardson is the show’s music supervisor and soundtrack co-producer and music supervisor for the series along with Jonathan Platt, Jonathan Miller and Jonathan McHugh. The soundtrack is licensed through NBC Universal television, DVD, music and consumer products group.
Commenting on the album, Liza Richardson says: “Working on “Parenthood” is a music supervisor’s dream. I’m working with extremely creative pros. These are people who love music and understand how to put the right song in the right scene and effectively help tell a story. The editors, the writers, the execs all make a huge contribution to the way the show sounds.”
Adds Jason Katims: “I am tremendously proud of the caliber of artists who’ve lent their voices to “Parenthood,” and to this amazing soundtrack.”
Season two of “Parenthood” premiered on NBC on Tues., Sept. 14. The show, which was number one in its time slot last season, is produced by Oscar-winning producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind,” “Frost”/”Nixon”) and show runner Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights”). A comedic yet heartfelt and thought-provoking series, “Parenthood” follows four grown siblings of the far-from-perfect Braverman clan as they try to balance kids and careers, dreams and commitments and romance…or a total lack thereof.

Wilco members John Stirratt and Pat Sansone will release their fourth Autumn Defense album Once Around on November 2nd 2010 via Yep Roc Records. The band will perform during the Wilco-curated Solid Sound Festival on August 15th.
Founding Wilco member John Stirratt and multi-instrumentalist/current member Pat Sansone bring the sounds of a California summer to the fall when they release Once Around 11/2 on Yep Roc. The band’s fourth full-length is filled with late 70s-tinged AM gold, all draped in melodies that seem to have always existed, resulting in songs that feel as though they’ve been floating on clouds, patiently waiting for their turn in the sun.
Much more than a side-project, The Autumn Defense is a fully realized, decade-long creative outlet for Stirratt and Sansone, elucidating a fresh set of songwriting goals and avenues of artistic expression. Once Around finds the band with a renewed vision and focus. Extensive touring plans are in the works which will allow the new material to flower in a way previous projects weren’t able to enjoy.
The band will debut much of its new material in the live setting at this month’s Solid Sound Festival (@ MassMoCA, North Adams MA, 8/12-15) curated by John, Pat and the other members of Wilco. The Autumn Defense will help close out the festival Sunday August 15th.
