For me, Wilco was the headliner of this festival. Yes, I did attempt to watch Bob Dylan, but my basecamp location was complicated by the limited camera angles on the jumbotron. I might as well have been watching Lawrence Welk. So, back to Wilco. This was a great set, high energy, beautiful songs, with chaotic (in a good way) accompaniments at times. They played both old and new, with lots covered on Sky Blue Sky, but also early tracks from AM and Being There. Jeff Tweedy's voice was amazing. 75 minutes was just not enough to do justice to the body of work that they have amassed. Come back to Austin soon!
