Wilco @ Gammage Auditorium, Saturday, January 21, 2012
Sunday, January 22, 2012 | 3 years ago
Plenty of derisive things get said about Wilco being "dad rock." You can't get around the fact that songwriter Jeff Tweedy, bassist John Stirratt, drummer Glen Kotche, guitarist Nels Cline, and multi-instrumentalists Pat Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen are indeed pushing or well into "dad age," but there's a sting to the tag, implying that the band has lost its edge, that the band makes music solely for greying NPR listeners and flannel-clad white kids. And sure, that's exactly who filled a sold-out Gammage Auditorium, but anyone expecting Wilco to "play the hits" would have been shaken by the first two songs. Read the full review of Wilco at Gammage Auditorium in Phoenix.
