Can't make it to that but I am going to see John Prine tonight..   8)

Nick Lowe is amazing. I saw him at the Lonestar in Westport many moons ago and got to meet him after the show. Not just an amazing talent but a truly nice individual as well.  He was Johnny Cash's son-in-law and collaborated with him for a time too. I hope the crowd treats him with respect and listens instead of ignoring him and making a bunch of racket. I suspect his show will be acoustic. His rock band days appear to be behind him. And here's an interview with him by Tim Finn in the KC Star posted yesterday, be sure to watch the Rockpile video embedded in the article:

Yes, Nick Lowe is opening up for Wilco.  It's a solo acoustic set.

He has also been coming out during Wilco's encores, performing some of his own stuff with Wilco as his backing band.  Selections have included I Love My Label, 36 Inches High and Cruel to Be Kind.
