Wilco will play a five-night “residency” at the Riviera February 15, 16, 18, 19, and 20, using the opportunity to rifle through their deep catalog and play songs rarely performed at recent live shows; a distinct set list for each show is promised. I like the idea, especially since it means hearing old nuggets played in a thoroughly different context –drummer Glenn Kotche and guitarist Nels Cline are invariably gonna put a unique stamp on anything they play. 

Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 AM through the usual outlets.

Today’s playlist:

P.G. Six, Slightly Sorry (Drag City)
Roscoe Mitchell, Composition/Improvisation  Nos. 1,2 & 3 (ECM)
Fino Coletivo, Fino Coletivo (Dubas Musica)
Sa-Ra, The Hollywood Recordings (Babygrande)
Mahwash, Ghazals Afghans (Accords Croises)
