I got your setlist right here…

Shortish concert reviews (and setlists, whenever possible)

Wilco — 6/24/11, North Adams, MA (Mass MoCA)

leave a comment »

A passing rainstorm slightly delayed the start of the first of two Wilco sets at this year’s Solid Sound Festival, but a dream end to the show more than made up for the soggy feet and wet clothes.

That dream ending would be Neil Finn coming out for a set-closing version of Split Enz’s classic “I Got You,” that immediately followed Wilco’s “I Got You (At The End of the Century),” thus making a reality of the long-hoped for (at least by my friends and I) “I Got You” medley. Yay!

Anyway, we also got the live debuts of several songs from the forthcoming Wilco record. I definitely liked all of the new songs we heard on first listen, which for me is always a good sign. There was another new song listed on the setlist as the first song of the encore, “Dawned On Me,” but it wound up getting cut, likely for time reasons.

Here was the complete setlist, as played:

—”Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” intro—
new song-I Might (live full-band debut)
Bull Black Nova
Muzzle of Bees
One Wing
Via Chicago
new song-Whole Love (live debut)
Hotel Arizona
Impossible Germany
Shouldn’t Be Ashamed
Handshake Drugs
Radio Cure
new song-Born Alone (live full-band debut)
Poor Places>
Spiders (Kidsmoke)
I’m The Man Who Loves You
Red-Eyed and Blue>
I Got You (At The End of the Century)
I Got You [Split Enz] (w/Neil Finn on electric guitar and vocals)

As a bonus, here’s a rough setlist ( I’m guessing at some of the song titles edit: I’m now pretty sure these are the correct song titles) for Neil Finn’s new project with his wife Sharon Finn, The Pajama Club, which essentially opened for Wilco last night:

Can’t Put It Down Until It Ends
These Are Conditions
Dead Leg
Diamonds In Her Eyes>
Go Kart
Golden Child
TNT For Two
The Games We Love To Play
From A Friend To A Friend
Tell Me What You Want
Little By Little (w/Glenn Kotche on drums)
