Best band in the world. I saw this in the paper the other day, I'm pumped. I saw them live two years ago and it was an amazing show. According to their website, the pre-sale for tickets starts on the 26th.

Either I'm too cool for you all or I'm not cool enough, because I've never heard of this band.

New to this site, just moved it IC on Friday from Minneapolis. First things first....how have you not heard of Wilco?

Also if you accept late comers...i could make it to the Wedge.

They're not super popular, but I'm surprised you haven't at least heard OF them. Their last couple albums have debuted in the top ten, and they've been one of the biggest critical darlings out there for the last decade or so. You should check them out, especially since they're going to be playing at Iowa.

I think I was so excited about Wilco that I forgot to ask to be included. :oops: But whether I'm on the list or not, I'll be there.

That was a crazy ass storm last night. It knocked the power out and I couldn't sleep. I tried reading by candlelight; it just made me very thankful that I wasn't born in the 19th century.

Yeah it was. It knocked out my power until 1 AM or so. It got really fucking hot in here without the AC or fans going, and I didn't even have candles to read by so I pretty much just had to sit around and try to sleep.

I was walking in it at the beginning (unintentionally). Luckily, it only rained moderately for a while before it came the fuck down.

Personally, I'm looking forward to shovelling snow away from my car after they plow the streets.

But I can't believe some of you lost power during the storm! I didn't even get a flicker.

Oh, don't worry; lots of streets don't even get plowed. They do get covered in sand though!

Does everyone have mediacom internet? Mine has only worked like 10% of the time, and continues to not work even after a technician came out. Anyone has success with a different internet service provider?

I've had good luck with Qwest DSL in the past.

Yeah, I'm using Qwest right now and it's great. I thought it was a lot better of a deal than Mediacom and the speeds are much more consistent.

Huh, I've used Mediacom for awhile and haven't had any serious problems with it yet.
