Wilco - Shot in the Arm

Wilco is the kind of band you NEED to see live. 
Under these circumstances:
a) in an intimate/semi-intimate indoor venue
b) while Jeff Tweedy is not severely messed up on drugs
c) two words: Nels Cline

I get emotional, though, just watching the Ashes of American Flags DVD. 

"Shot in the Arm" has some fantastic imagery.

"Your pillow wept
You covered your eyes
And you finally slept
When the sun caught fire"

"We fell in love
in the key of C"

See for yourself.
