Feel I’m goin’ back to Massachusetts

Heading west from yesterday’s Boston post, we arrive at Mass MOCA in North Adams, one year ago today, home of Wilco’s Solid Sound festival.  On this, day one, we are performing The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller with Sam Green, minutes after the conclusion of Wilco’s all-covers, all-requests set.  The trick is we’ve been asked to participate in Wilco’s show–first on “Tom Courtenay” (which has never sounded the same to us, now that we no longer have the use of Glenn Kotche’s gong), and then on the climactic “Roadrunner.”  So while Fuller fans make their way to our venue, we are being escorted through secret passageways in the depths of Mass MOCA, real spy stuff.
