Jeff Tweedy & the Autumn Defense played Bowery Ballroom (setlist)

“The sound in the Bowery Ballroom was really excellent – A perfect place to see Jeff Tweedy solo. The crowd had been drinking pretty steadily for about 1 1/2 hours by the time Autumn Defense started their excellent set, and there was a lot of loud talking and a general “night out at the bar while a band plays in the background” atmosphere. John even made some snarky remarks to the tune of (not exact quotes) “Thanks for listening, the two of you” and that the Autumn Defense was a rock band “sort of”, just loud enough that you could still “talk over them”. This made me a bit nervous, because by the time Jeff took the stage, around 10:40, after what seemed to be an equipment issue delay, I wasn’t certain that the liquored-up crowd would be able to quiet down. When Jeff first appeared, picked up his guitar and started picking the intro to Spiders, which were practically inaudible due to clapping/talking, I was even more nervous, but the crowd quieted down, and the few remaining talkers were forcefully and repeatedly shushed. Talking was not much of an issue throughout the rest of the show. At one point, Jeff thanked the crowd for being conscientious and quiet, to which somebody shouted “Should we get loud?”. Jeff replied “Do you want to get loud?” to enthusiastic cheering to which he responded “Well, you came to the wrong show”. Classic.” [dvigs24]

One night after Jeff Tweedy showed off his guest-starring abilities in honor of the Jewish holidays, the Wilco honcho performed another solo set at the sold-out Bowery Ballroom with The Autumn Defense (featuring Wilco bandmates John Stirratt and Pat Sansone). As you can see from the above picture, Stirratt & Sansone joined Tweedy on stage, assisting in the performance of “California Stars” and “I Got You” as part of the first encore. Full setlist from the Saturday night show is below.

The Autumn Defense also played the Living Room last night (12/5). How was that? Did Tweedy make another guest appearance?

Jeff Tweedy & The Autumn Defense continue their tour together and play Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY tonight (12/6). The show is sold-out, but there are still tickets available for Wilco member Nels Cline‘s Yuka Honda show at Le Poisson Rouge which is also happening tonight.
