Wilco at Chicago Theatre 12/18/19

In an era of constant disappointment, it’s nice to know that some things will never let you down. Wilco, over the last 20+ years, have consistently delivered great shows to their fans. This years Winterlude At Chicago Theatre was no different. After hitting 3/6 shows at the Riviera a couple years ago, I cut it down to just 1/4 during this run.

From the stomping guitar riff that opens the song, a bit of a throwback to early 00’s … Continue reading No Baby-“Breach”

It’s made its way in and out of my personal Top 25 albums of 2019 over the months, but it is currently in and definitely worth your time. I’m honored to be premiering the video for “You And Your … Continue reading Video Premiere: “You And Your Shadow” by Kate Schell
