Wilco – Impossible France?

Yesterday I went to see Wilco at the Bataclan. It was totally amazing, and it’s hard to imagine how it could have been any better.

Of course, the music is neither punk-rock nor particularly dance-able, but 1h45 of great songs, amazing musicianship (as in singing, drumming and guitar playing) and real emotions are all I ask for.

I am, of course, biased, as I am a long time Wilco fan, but after the show, even G says:

"Mais, je dois avouer que Jeff Tweedy est sans doute l’un des plus grand songwriters US de ces 10 dernières ann es" (I must admit that Jeff Tweedy is, without doubt, one of the greatest US songwriters of the last 10 years)

One question remains: How come that Wilco still is such an insider affair in France? Even yesterday the Bataclan  would have probably been half empty, if there had not been so many Americans.
