I was so excited when I heard that Wilco was coming for a three-night stand at my favorite venue, the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, which is just a couple miles up the road from my home here in New York.
I was lucky enough to go the first two nights and I shot the band during their second show, which took place on October 29.
Both shows I saw were just amazing, and it turns out all three of them had unique and amazing setlists (they did 30+ songs a night with only 1 repeat) that spanned their 20 years together.
Thanks to www.nyctaper.com you can download recordings of all three nights and the sound quality is pristine. I highly recommend checking out them out. Also go to the band’s website www.wilcoworld.net to pre-order their 20th Anniversary Box set ‘Alpha Mike Foxtrot – Rare Tracks 1994-2014’, available 11/17.
