Just a couple things.

Firstly, Wilco recorded a series of shows in May of this year for a live album & DVD. I was lucky enough to catch one of these gigs – the one on the 7th. Details of the CD were recently released. The name of the album is called Kicking Television (Live in Chicago) and here’s the tracklisting:

Disc 1
Company in My Back
The Late Greats
Hell Is Chrome
Handshake Drugs
I Am Trying to Break Your Heart
Shot in the Arm
At Least That’s What You Said
Wishful Thinking
Jesus, Etc
I’m the Man Who Loves You
Kicking Television

Disc 2
Via Chicago
Muzzle of Bees
One by One
Airline to Heaven
Radio Cure
Ashes of American Flags
Heavy Metal Drummer
Poor Places
Spiders (Kidsmoke)

And just announcing some tour dates are The Musical Box. The Musical Box are a Canadian Genesis cover band that painstakingly recreate Gabriel-era Genesis concerts. They are currently recreating the shows from 1974-75 when Genesis were promoting their album, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Here are their North American tour dates:

Thursday November 3 Fitzgerald Theatre, St. Paul, MN
Friday November 4 Pabst Theater, Milwaukee, WI
Saturday November 5 House of Blues, Chicago, IL
Sunday November 6 Allen Theatre (Playhouse Square Center), Cleveland, OH
Friday November 25 Théâtre du Centre Bell, Montreal, Quebec
Saturday November 26 Grand Théâtre de Québec, Quebec, Que
Friday December 2 Shea’s Performing Arts Center, Buffalo , NY
Saturday December 3 Massey Hall, Toronto, Ont
Friday December 16 Tribeca Performing Arts Center, New York, NY
Saturday December 17 Tribeca Performing Arts Center, New York, NY

I’ve never seen them before but I hear that they do a really good rendition of early Genesis with lights, slide projections, and all the costumes that Gabriel wore.
