Video: Wilco on Conan "You Never Know"

I went to the Wilco/Grizzly Bear show last week and I have not talked about it until now because I am a little pissed. I took my camera AND my little flip video camera with me in hopes of getting some bad ass clips n' pics. I had second row seats for the love of god so I was 10 feet from the stage. Now here comes the part I am pissed about, I noticed on the back of the ticket it said "No cameras or recording devices", we had to park like 2 miles away because of the odd location of Centennial Hall in relationship to available parking so I wasn't going to take my big ass camera or the flip since I didn't want to get turned away and have to go ALL the way back to my car and miss half the show so I left it all in the trunk. BUT when we get in there and sit down it's like the fucking presidential press conference in there! Every person in the first five rows was snapping away like digital film is free or something. So alas I COULD have taken my camera and been just fine. Oh and they ran out of water before the show even started. BUT the saving grace to all of this complaining is that it was the best effing concert I have even been to in my life. Grizzly Bear was awesome albeit short since they were "opening" but Wilco played for almost two hours of pure awesomeness. If you can get tickets to any of the remaining shows on their tour DO IT! If not then I guess you will have to live with them on Conan last night.
