Setlist / Video | Wilco @ Pitchfork Festival 7/17/15


I can only think of one other instance of a band debuting an entire album's worth of material in one show. On Halloween 2013, Phish ran down a dozen new songs as a part of the Wingsuit set, a musical costume playing "an album from the future."

Of course, that was similar but not exactly to what emerged in 2014 as Fuego.

Wilco flipped the script, debuting all of the songs, in order, from the surprise released Star Wars that was unleashed on Thursday, the day after it was made public. 

Given that their flagship music festival was held in Massachusetts, I'm glad they saved a huge event for the hometown Chicago crowd. 

The rest of the set was filled with a wide selection from their impressive catalog.
