    Friday May 15 | Something Else! Reviews

    Wilco's Sky Blue Sky, released on May 15, 2007, opened with the gentle guitar of "Either Way" - and a film began to unreel in my mind. The black screen, the titles, and then Jeff Tweedy's soft, scratchy voice crackled out "Maybe the sun will shine today," just as a scene of the open road was revealed.

    Tuesday May 12 | Nuvo.net

    Wilco Thursday, May 7 Murat Theatre at Old National Centre While initial feelings about Wilco's cancelled-then-reinstated show in the wake of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act were somewhat mixed between those strongly supporting and those who felt they were being punished for the ignorance of a minority of Hoosiers, few argued that Wilco's performance was a welcome end to that initial fallout.

    Monday May 11 | Stereogum

    Jim O'Rourke is one of those behind-the-curtain masterminds; he recorded and mixed Joanna Newsom's remarkable sophomore album, Ys , and mixed what remains, in my opinion, Wilco's best album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot .
