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.
