Here’s one event we won’t be attending this summer: Wilco’s Solid Sound festival.
And what an event it will be. It seems the Berkshires has never seen anything like it: a 3-day long music/art/comedy extravaganza, 6,000 fans, a few dozen tour buses, and the attendant port-a-potties.
Every other Facebook update seems to be about the impending awesomeness that we will be missing.
And then there’s this:
They added a Wilco sign to match and stand opposite the MassMoCA sign!
When does that happen? I mean, really. Did they erect a sign for Sol LeWitt? No.
That is just very, very cool.
Also cool: this poster by Nicole Blauw Design
Do I buy it even if I’m not there? It seems wrong.
If you’re a poster lover (we’ve started making our kitchen a poster gallery), you’re in luck. Over the weekend, MassMoCA will display a collection of past and present Wilco concert posters, as well as a demonstration by Wilco poster collaborator Ghost-Town Design.
Wilco, I hate to miss you, especially when you’re in our backyard. Why’d you have to be so expensive?
