Recap: Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival

This past weekend, ugh fine…just Wilco, returned to MASS MoCA in the former industrial town of North Adams, MA to host their second annual Solid Sound Festival. The 140-year-old-plus site, which was formerly the home to a textile plant and an electronics factory, offered fans a chance to not only see a variety of bands, which included healthy doses of Wilco side projects, and a full slate of comedy curated by John Hodgman, but also some truly fantastic thought provoking art.

The weather seemed to be a dominant story throughout the weekend, as some torrential rain storms blew through the area on both Friday and Saturday. The large puddles strewn throughout the museum’s campus and a muddy main field, didn’t prevent Wilco from throwing down two lengthy headlining sets that marked their only U.S. shows of the summer. The group treated fans to nearly 50 different songs, spanning their entire catalog – a feat that perhaps only a jamband is capable of doing.
