Show Notes

Wilco and tour co-headliners Sonic Youth head into Philadelphia's Penn's Landing (on the banks of the Delaware River) following two shows at New York's Central Park.  By this time, the Tweedy / Stirratt / Kotche / Bach / Jorgensen five piece lineup had been playing together for about a year, with Mikael now playing a full array of keyboards, resulting in a more dense and intricate sound.  Highlights of this show center around the still-formulating arrangements of songs that would later appear on the A Ghost Is Born album, including a very electric version of "Muzzle of Bees" (with some different lyrics) and a bopping take on "Spiders (Kidsmoke)" that splits the difference between the earlier "folk-y" approach and the full-on "Kraut Rock" version to follow.    In addition, the encore includes and extended and intense version of "Laminated Cat" featuring frequent collaborator and then Sonic Youth member Jim O'Rourke.


Lineup

Jeff Tweedy: lead vocals, guitar

John Stirratt: bass, backing vocals
