Wilco and Jay Farrar are all over the news these days- for both good and bad reasons. Last night my friend said the Wilco show at Keyspan Park in Coney Island was fun, but that Wilco was more like a cheerleader for themselves than an actual awesome band. She said they were more showcasing the act of bringing it more than just bringing it. I can believe that…. You know who brought it?? Uncle Tupelo. And here’s my favorite track, Screen Door, which pretty much hits the nail on the head in explaining the best way to spend your days:

“Down here, where we’re at, all we do is sit out on the porch, and play our songs, and nothing’s wrong. Sometimes friends come around, they all sing along. Down here, where we’re at, everybody is equally poor. Down here, we don’t care. We don’t care what happens outside the screen door!”
