Wilco on Austin City Limits

Last night on Austin City Limits, Wilco added its star to the program's prestigous roster. Certainly one of the great TV performance programs (what other program broadcasts in a letterbox format?!), Austin City Limits featured a half hour set of Wilco. Fresh off last night's David Letterman show, it's been a Wilco weekend. The setlist:

at least that's what you said
muzzle of bees
hell is chrome
ashes of american flags
i'm a wheel

Glenn Kotche's drumming and Pat Sansone's guitar pyrotechnics were on full display. Glenn's drumsticks were a blur and Pat was his usual Pete Townshend self, as the screen photos above show.

Over on Via Chicago, fans raved about the broadcast.
M. Christine: "That was a sonic sandwich piled high and tight with the finest ingredients."

viatroy: "I love dishevelled hat-hair Jeff, not ready-for-prime-time special hair Jeff."

too lazy to crow: "the last minute+45 sec of ashes of american flags was particularly sublime."

Also on the program were Bright Eyes who are on this month's Filter Magazine cover.

Along with Bright Eyes, Jim James of My Morning Jacket made a guest appearance for a few songs. Bright Eyes' lead Conor Oberst gave a great performance that hopefully will bring them some well deserved attention.
