I’ve been a little silent on the blog this week because I’ve been out in California for work. I’m having a lot of fun out here with my skateboard and the 60 degree weather, so I’ve had minimal time in front of the computer to hammer out some blog posts. My backlog will get cleared up soon enough, and in the meantime while I’m out here, I’m actually going to be missing the first night of Wilco residency at the Riveria in Chicago. Five nights of Chicago’s favorite sons at a great venue with promises of surprises from the back catalog — one surefire bet for any Wilco fans in the room…

I’m curious as to who’s going to be in attendance for this; I’m hoping we can solicit an update or two from the masses on how each night was, what the band busted out, what funny things Tweedy said, etc. Drop some comments if you’re going and we’ll keep this thread running throughout the week (assuming we do get some actual input and no heresay). There’s always the message boards, too.

Here’s a video to wet your whistle from their set at Lollapalooza 2006:
