Wilco covered Get Lucky (AND A LOT MORE)

June 24, 2013

Chicago rock veterans Wilco played a set at Solid Sound Festival in Massachusetts, and they decided to do some thing kind of crazy cool. They played a covers set filled with 27 classic and new tunes. There’s a full set up on NYCTaper but their service seems to be temporarily down, so in the meantime, let’s just tune into this fan video of PART of the set. Which part? Wilco’s cool spot on cover of the ubiquitous Get Lucky. This looks like it was LOADS of fun. 

Here’s a list of all the covers they went through during this gig. Amazing. I want to hear it all:

The Boys Are Back in Town (Thin Lizzy cover)
Cut Your Hair (Pavement cover)
In the Street (Big Star cover)
New Madrid (Uncle Tupelo cover)
Dead Flowers (The Rolling Stones cover)
Simple Twist of Fate (Bob Dylan cover)
Ripple (Grateful Dead cover)
Who Loves the Sun (The Velvet Underground cover)
And Your Bird Can Sing (The Beatles cover)
And Your Bird Can Sing (The Beatles cover) (And Your Bird Can Sing was … more)
Psychotic Reaction (Count Five cover)
Tom Courtenay (Yo La Tengo cover) (with Yo La Tengo)
James Alley Blues
Waterloo Sunset (The Kinks cover) (with Lucius)
Waterloo (ABBA cover) (with Lucius)
(What’s So Funny ’bout) Peace, Love and Understanding (Brinsley Schwarz cover)
Marquee Moon (Television cover)
Happy Birthday To You (Mildred J. Hill cover) (to Pat Sansone)
(Don’t Fear) The Reaper (Blue Öyster Cult cover)
Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young cover)
Get Lucky (Daft Punk cover)
Surrender (Cheap Trick cover)
Color Me Impressed (The Replacements cover) (with Tommy Stinson)
Kingpin
Thank You Friends (Big Star cover)
The Weight (The Band cover) (with Lucius)

While we’re waiting for the full set to become available, here’s the rocking Marquee Moon (Television) cover, an 11+ minute jam.
