Roots rock, alternative country, folk, and indie are all terms to which Wilco's sound has been likened. Most bands loathe being pigeonholed into a particular sound, and if you ask them what genre they fall into, you can actually see them cringe.

Hi Hugh, Thanks, I didn't use a IPHONE I used a Canon. Ha so i'm not sure how good the images were then....

I also have a Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 that I love. I like shots with the whole band in it and this lens gets it all. I am eyeing a 70-200mm 2.8 that I will hopefully have for summer. We'll see.

Oh sorry about that. I was by the stage for the first three songs and out of the corner of my eye I saw someone with an iPhone snapping away. My mistake man. I thought that was you. Not meant to be a diss on your pictures at all. I think they are cool.

No problem Hugh. I'm glad you like the photos. I like your blog by the way, very good stuff. I need a camera like yours, I saw it at Wilco. What are you shooting?
