Friday Chill Music (February 29, 2008)

Friday Chill Music is back with a bang today thanks to NPR's Podcast of Wilco. I'm a big fan of NPR's All Songs Considered. I love it when the crowd goes crazy as the band comes on stage and Bob Boilen does the play by play from the 9:30 Club. "The lights are going down..." is one of my favorite phrases.

The concert starts out with Sunken Treasure, stark and wonderful. Then gradually picks up steam until it's rocking with You Are My Face a few songs later. Wilco is just unstoppable right now.

By the way, I heard about this podcast from Greg Mercer, the old fashioned way, via email. But I also heard about it via a Beth Steven's Facebook newsfeed. These newsfeeds are incredibly powerful. A company called FriendFeed is trying to take the idea of a Newsfeed and free it from Facebook. So far I like it. Try it out, and connect to me, Scott Orn, so I can learn from you.
