Will Call for Wilco

Venue: Adams Event Center
Where: Missoula, Montana
When: Monday, May 5th at 8p.m. (Mountain Time)
Who: Wilco

Andrew and I left at 10a.m. on Monday morning and headed up to Missoula. It took us about 8 or so hours to drive up there, but we had great weather and awesome music to keep us entertained, as well as some good conversation. He may have kept bringing up how he missed Matt so much (true or false?). We both drove and the other one would usually nap because we've been sleep deprived lately so that was nice.

There was only 1 snag/detour/sidetrack or whatever you want to call it; Rock Creek Road. The directions told us to take this road which was a one lane dirt road that looked like it went into the heart of the wilderness. We drove on it a little bit and made a 12 point turn around and headed back to the highway.

We made it to the college and had trouble finding parking that wasn't permitted protected, so we parked in a hotel nearby and walked. So it began...

I can't remember the opening act's name, but they were alright. But then Wilco came out and played for like 2 1/2 hours! It was so sweet! They sounded soo good and were great live! We were on the floor so we were in the middle of that. Words can't really describe the concert, but it was a great one. They played from all of their albums and it was great. You'll have to turn your head to see some of the pics...sorry.

We then called up our freshman year pal, Mr. Joe Nisly, who graciously put us up for the night. Joe and his lovely wife, Kiah, made us pancakes and bacon in the morning. We owe them big time! We then drove back home to Nampa. We made it in around 3p.m. and are just exhausted. More on the way.
