Full Show Friday: Classic Wilco – Fox Theater 1995

For today’s Full Show Friday selection we look back at a professionally-shot Wilco show that took place just about six months after the group’s first gig. Recorded on May 23rd, 1995 at Boulder’s Fox Theater, these vids feature an early version of the band that saw Jeff Tweedy backed by Ken Coomer on drums, John Stirratt on bass and multi-instrumentalists Max Johnston and Jay Bennett.

Wilco performed over 30 songs on this night including 11 of the 13 tracks from their debut album A.M. and two that wound up making Being There in 1996. There’s also four covers, the best of which is a rollicking take on Listen To Her Heart by Tom Petty. So blow off work and check this shit out…
