Jeff Tweedy - 12/03/2013 Uptown Theater, Kansas City, MO

Wilco's frontman Jeff Tweedy 

This was a fantastic show at the Uptown Theater to start off Jeff's solo acoustic tour.

Jeff played a brilliant set of music that spanned his whole career including songs he wrote for Mavis Staples.

There was one joker in the crowd that pissed him off at the start of the show and progressively got worse until he addressed it.  He put the guy in his place and had the fans behind him the whole way.

The whole night was filled with gems including I'm Trying To Break Your Heart, Jesus, etc and Bob Dylan's 49th Beard.  Shot In The Arm & New Madrid were really amazing and finished off the show strong.

The sound was a little rough at the start but progressively got better over the rest of the show.  Jeff complained about the lighting but from the seats it seemed fine.

If you ever get a chance to see Jeff Tweedy Solo I would jump on it.

Set List: Solitaire; I Am Trying to Break Your Heart; Remember the Mountain; Sunken Treasure; Long Time Ago (Golden Smog); Passenger Side; Dawned on Me; Radio Cure; Chinese Apple (Loose Fur); Kamera; One True Vine; Ruling Class; You and I; Bob Dylan’s 49th Beard; Jesus, Etc.; Born Alone; Laminated Cat (aka Not for the Season).
