At Wilco’s headlining set for the band’s third annual Solid Sound Festival, the band unleashed a massive 27-song set filled with eclectic covers ranging from Pavement to The Beatles and a little bit of everything in between.
The festival may have taken a break in 2012, but the Wilco curated event came back with a bang this year. The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art was home to acts like Yo La Tengo, Neko Case and two sets from the festival’s beloved founders.
One of the sets was filled with fan-requested cover songs and thankfully NYC Taper was there to record the whole thing. The band pulled out Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” the cowbell-filled Blue Öyster Cult classic of ”(Dont Fear) The Reaper” and various other timeless gems including some Yo La Tengo tracks performed with the band.
You can download the full set from NYC Taper and listen to the band’s cover of “Color Me Impressed” by The Replacements below.
