Why Aren't You Listening to the Jesus Lizard?

Hey Kids,

Rod Powers here, you might know me from my work on LA Law, Jake and The Fat Man and Hanging' with Mr. Cooper. When I'm not doing loads of coke and banging hookers I like to stay up on what's hip in the music world. KBGA has asked me chime in every so often to submission you jerks into liking what I like.

So my first order of business is to spread the word of The Jesus Lizard. If you don't like them or haven't heard them before than you're like Sonny Corleone to me "DEAD". This band could have possibly done more coke than me and Corbin Bernsen combined. So take some time out of your boring day and listen to The Jesus Lizard. Now!!

Love You Baby.

Wilco - Adam's Center 5/5

Wilco drew heavily from 2002's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot for the Missoula audience, featuring eight songs from their career making album. Their most recent effort, Sky Blue Sky, along with 2004's A Ghost is Born were also well represented with six and five songs respectively. Also in the mix was 'When the Roses Bloom Again', a song culled from the band's joint sessions with Billy Bragg but unreleased on their collaboration, Mermaid Avenue. As with other songs from that effort, 'When the Roses Bloom Again' was a lost lyric of Woody Guthrie's set to music by Jeff Tweedy following the discovery of the song by Guthrie's daughter.

Here's the full setlist from last night's show:
