I got your setlist right here…

Shortish concert reviews (and setlists, whenever possible)

Wilco — 5/8/11, Tulsa, OK (Cain’s Ballroom)

leave a comment »

A show at Cain’s Ballroom is always a fun way to wrap up a tour, and this was no exception. Great to see so many familiar faces, which helped make the time spent waiting in line go by much faster despite some sizzling temperatures.

The band seemed happy to be playing in their “home away from home,” judging by the many smiles exchanged throughout the show. And as it always seems when Wilco plays Cain’s, the sound was excellent. I said to a couple of people afterward that I almost felt sorry for anyone who saw the show in Houston and didn’t get to see the one in Tulsa because, to cite just one thing, you could actually hear Nels play at the latter.

More comments to come, including Jeff’s banter about some “indignities” the band had suffered on this mini-tour and Jeff goading Glenn into doing his Todd Trainer tribute on “I’m The Man Who Loves You” with a verbal low blow of sorts.

Here was the complete setlist, as played:
