Wilco Live: Ashes of American Flags
Following Wilco from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Washington D.C. during its 2008 U.S. tour of ballrooms, clubs and concert halls, this feature-length DVD is a concert film of extraordinary intimacy, capturing the six-piece band, and three-man horn section, at such hallowed venues as Tipitina’s in New Orleans and the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. This film acts as an evocative travelogue that documents of the band’s physical and emotional journey. Viewers will track Wilco’s tour bus across the country, taking in both the wide-angle beauty and desolation of the highways and cities they pass through while watching candid moments at each stop during sound check, back stage, and on the bus, where band members offer insights into their lives on the road and their remarkably intuitive communication as a group.
