Wilco set out on their fall 2001 U.S. tour with the aggregate weight of the band's recent lineup change, the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, and promoting a new record that was not yet officially released. While earlier shows revealed a band still finding its sea legs (no doubt due, at least in part, to what was happening in the world at the time), by the time they landed in San Francisco for a three night run at the Fillmore, Wilco was a minimalist yet powerful four piece. This show, judged to be the best of the run, sees the band playing beautiful, sparse arrangements of nearly all of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, with "Ashes Of American Flags" being a particular standout. Other highlights include what Jeff announces as their first live performance of "Pieholden Suite", and a crazy, chaotic, and extended "Misunderstood" featuring a gnarly electric guitar loop.
