Wilco worked a sensational 2 1/2 hour set Saturday night at Mass MoCA's Joe Field. Lead singer Jeff Tweedy thanked the thousands in attendance (official number of tickets sold have yet to be released by event organizers):
"Thanks for letting us take over your town, or at least part of it," he said.
The freight train could be heard during one of Wilco's songs, and Tweedy quipped:
"You guys hear that train go by? We made that happen. It's part of our installation."
Tweedy also got the fans involved, letting the masses sing the first two verses to "Jesus, Etc." He said it was one of the top three renditions he's ever heard from an audience.
The band's frontman also made reference to coming back next year, which garnered a huge roar from the crowd.
Still plenty more to come Sunday on the third and final day of the Solid Sound Festival. Keep it here at iBerkshires.com for more coverage.

I have never heard Wilcos music before but was blown away at the sounds they are able to make. The arena and buildings surrounding the band made the show even more enhanced. I definately hope they come back to MOCA because it made the town electric.
