Wilco - New York, NY - 2004-06-08

One of the first shows Wilco played in support of A Ghost Is Born was June 8, 2004 at Irving Plaza in New York City...The support act was The M's (and if anybody has a recording of that set, please let me know).

Ghost still holds up as one of my favorite records in a long, long time and this show's set was jam-packed with tracks from it.

Between Wilcobase and other sources I have been able to pull together a bunch of material from this show, including photos, a recording (available for download below) and a shot of the event poster.

The Setlist (and disc running order)...

Disc one:
1. Handshake Drugs
