The Wilco show I went to was amazing: Not only did I have a great seat just in general, but the two rows in front of me stayed in their seats for everything but the final encore, so when everyone else stood up for the first encore, there was absolutely nothing obstructing my view of the whole stage. Except Jeff blocking my view of Glenn, but I could live with that because they kept smiling at each other and I love them.

This show was the first time I saw most of Wilco. It was supposed to be a Minus 5 show, and I'd gotten into them via REM - it was one of Peter Buck's side projects, and their most recent release was a collaboration with Wilco, so I at least knew who Jeff Tweedy was, but somehow wasn't expecting nearly the entire band to be playing this show. I went with my IRL popslash friend, who was definitely a Wilco fan, and we were both like, "Is that - Jeff Tweedy?", and we were close enough that there was some awkward eye contact. (We went to a a lot of concerts during those years, things I would have never gone to alone, and I will always be grateful for her friendship.) Several months later, she showed me I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, an A+ beautiful documentary about the making of "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot", and that hooked me. I remember wanting to run right out and buy my own copy, but it was Thanksgiving and everything was closed.

Anyway, I hadn't seen Wilco since I did all the Residency shows in 2008, so nearly ten years. I am just Too Tired to deal with General Admission shows that aren't guaranteed to be a very small audience (so like, the last time I saw Empires in Milwaukee where we basically ate pizza the whole time), so my concert attendance the last few years has decreased dramatically. Alas! Now I want pizza.

Going to see The Mummy tonight with Upstairs Lady, since no one else I know wants to see it, and I want to see Russell Crowe get all evil and Sofia Boutella destroy shit. I might take a nap first though, since it's a 7:30 show and I usually put my pajamas on at like five in the afternoon in anticipation of doing nothing until I finally make myself go to bed. (Dear self: Maybe you should be an adult and try going to sleep earlier at night, you might be less of a zombie in the mornings.)
