Last night, Wilco performed at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre closing out their two-night run in the Emerald City. Wilco played an extensive set effortlessly traversing their vast discography: Wilco played 22 tracks from nine studio albums including four songs from their latest offering Ode to Joy, which was released in 2019.
Wilco opened with “Bright Leaves” and “A Shot in the Arm” which has become a kind of COVID Era anthem before they started rolling out favorites turned classics. Wilco played “I’m Trying to Break Your Heart,” “How to Fight Loneliness,” “Hummingbird,” “Jesus, Etc.” “California Stars” and more.
They encored with Wilco’s 2004 number “I’m A Wheel” off their 5th studio album A Ghost Is Born. Wilco was then joined by The Young Fresh Fellows for their final encore, a rendition of the Beatles “Helter Skelter.”
