Wilco at Newport - 7/27/12
Wilco

Newport Folk Festival went down over the weekend (7/28-29), but before things kicked into full gear, a pre-show went down on Friday (7/27) with sets from Wilco (who were just in NYC), Blitzen Trapper, and Megafaun. Wilco played a two hour set with included "Christ for President" from Mermaid Avenue and brought Woody Guthrie's granddaughter out for the encore.

If you missed the show, maybe you streamed it live. If you missed that too, you can listen to archives of Wilco's set, Blitzen Trapper's set, and Megafaun's set at NPR.

More pictures and Wilco's setlist from the Newport Folk Fest pre-show below.

Enough with the Dad Rock label. How does Standing O, Art of Almost etc sound like dad rock?

Seriously, people who call Wilco "dad rock" are just idiots.

I agree, my dad knows Yankee Hotel Foxtrot was their last good album.

I'd rather see WILCO pics than shitty hip-hop artists I've never heard of.
