Last night, Wilco kicked off a six-show run through the Golden State at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, a jaunt that will wrap next Sunday at the Hollywood Bowl (LMB TICKET GIVEAWAY HERE). Notably, the trend of unplugged, acoustic versions of “Spiders (Kidsmoke)” continues, despite @Phortin’s pleas. Wilco returns for a second show at the Greek tonight. Continue below for the setlist.
