Wilco Live @ Sasquatch! 2011

photos by Brittney Bush Bollay

This year’s Sasquatch! came to a close with veteran Chicago rockers Wilco performing a thunderous set at the Main Stage. Jeff Tweedy was in top form, taking his expert showmanship and experience to new heights, with the Gorge as a beautiful backdrop. The band rocked and tumbled through 23 of their hits, opening with “Ashes of American Flags” and closing with “Spiders (Kidsmoke)” before coming back on for an encore that ended in a rousing rendition of the indelible “Hoodoo Voodoo.” You might not be able to see the rolling hills and the majestic sunset, but you can still experience the sonic revelations that Wilco produce with KEXP’s own live stream of the event.
