Wilco: Ashes of American Flags/Cain's Ballroom
Perhaps the greatest two shows I have ever seen have both been at the Cain’s Ballroom.
And both were Wilco.
The first was after “A Ghost is Born” and the last was after “Sky Blue Sky.” Both were about watching a band so comfortable on stage that it seemed like we, the audience, were all hanging out in Wilco’s recording loft in Chicago. Nary was a note missed at either show and their last show was caught on tape.
On their upcoming “Ashes of American Flags” DVD, set to be released on April 18th, their last show at the Cain’s Ballroom is all over the place. Everything from Jeff Tweedy’s rose-covered blazer to his admission that he had suffered a relapse of sorts right here in Tulsa.
Check out their website and look for the video evidence of an incredible night of music at the Cain’s.
