Jeff Tweedy & Leslie Feist
"Some of us got to see Wilco play at Coney Island last night. I'm happy to report that they remain one of the best live acts out there, deftly combining jaw-dropping virtuosity, inventive heart-on-your-sleeve songwriting and, yes, genuine showmanship. They connect! The new material came off well, and they kept the noodle-ing to a minimum (Impossible Germany = bad, Spiders = good). Jeff Tweedy seemed to be in particularly good spirits, cracking some great jokes and reminding me of the recent NY Times interview with him" [the mockingbird blog]So, just to recap, Feist, formerly and recently of BSS, was already BFF with Grizzly Bear, and is now BFF with Wilco. This = a good thing. Feist will appear on Letterman with Wilco tonight (7/14). Last night, in Coney Island, Feist and Ed from Grizzly Bear and Yo La Tengo (who opened the show) appeared on stage with Wilco at Keyspan Park (home of the Brooklyn Cyclones which is the minor league baseball team named after the roller coaster, which is located in the same section of Brooklyn (Coney Island), and which Ed and Feist also rode while they were there).
