Wilco at Dutchess Stadium, Wappingers Falls, NY 7/18/09

Wilco played the last show of their 2009 tour of minor league ballparks at Dutchess Stadium in Wappingers Falls, NY on Saturday, 7/18/09.

Another all-around great show by the best rock band playing today. Not quite as captivating as the show with Yo La Tengo last Monday, but fun and a fitting end to their ballpark tour. Jef said they took a trick from Yo La Tengo and threw two baseballs out into the crowd. One signed by the band and one by the crew (he said the crew-signed one was more valuable).

Nels Cline again showed why he's one of the most highly-regarded rock and roll guitarists.

Pat Sansone added lots of sounds to the mix.

Glenn Kotche anchored the band as always.

Many more photos (and higher resolution) in my Flickr photoset. Don't miss them.

Show # 34

  1. I was at this show but I was back in the stadium seats not down on the field fighting to see the band. I was too far away try really judge anything other than the sound. Glenn is to Wilco what Charlie Watts is to the Stones and that's high praise where I come from.
