Wilco, The Troxy, 25/08/09

Despite owning all seven of their albums, I'd sadly never seen this Chicago-based band live before! It was strange sitting down for the gig in a weird art deco cinema, but the performance was blew me away, and the songs were so much better (if possible) live, with extra riffs, and improvisation galore all neatly meshed together by such a cohesive group of sincere musicians.

The band were so sweet- as it was lead singer Jeff's birthday they got him a cake and fired party poppers all around him towards the end.
