Show Notes

Following opening sets by Sleater-Kinney and The Flaming Lips, Wilco sets the tone for a raucous New Year's Eve by taking the stage at New York's Madison Square Garden (in their pajamas) and opening with the not-so-fist-pounding "Less Than You Think".  Not to worry...party intentions are quickly displayed as the band follows that up with a version of "Spiders (Kidsmoke)" played at breakneck speed.  "Come for the repertoire, stay for the covers" is the order of the night, as the band includes, among many others, versions of "Living After Midnight" (Judas Priest), "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" (Blue Oyster Cult) and even "Love Will Keep Us Together" (The Captain and Tennille).  Some of these covers would enter into the band's short-term repertoire, while others were "one and done" for this special event.
