I Sure Wish I Had Been There

Wilco and The Flaming Lips played at Madison Square Garden on New Year’s Eve.

When I heard about the show back in October, I knew I was going to miss something good.

But I just checked out the Wilco setlist and saw that among a host of covers, they did Judas Priest’s Living After Midnight, Blue Oyster Cult’s Don’t Fear The Reaper, I Shall Be Released, and one of my all time favorite tunes, Thundercap Newman’s Something In the Air.

Damn.  I downloaded the show on Bit Torrent.  I guess I’ll have to live with that.
