Re: “Review: Wilco @ Johnny Mercer Theatre

@savannahblue apparently you are right about everything as evidenced by every other comment on this article. okay, you win. savannah is full of gracious, considerate concert-goers who make the experience pleasant for all those around them. i hope that sarcasm can be implied via this comment post. and the reason why we have to be concerned about the frat boys around us is because they make it impossible to enjoy even the most solid of shows. i realize that in this day and age it is all about doing whatever you want, if that is talking through a concert, sneaking into a concert, throwing things at other people in a concert, and that common courtesy and civility no longer exist unless it is convenient for the person doing the offending, but i really thought that in savannah of all places, we'd be able to see a great rock band in front a friendly crowd. lesson learned. and i stand by my earlier statement. wilco will never be back to savannah.

Re: “Review: Wilco @ Johnny Mercer Theatre

@jmorekis- it is not a question of "you have to stand at a wilco show" at this show in particular i along with many other felt like if we stood, we would be at risk of being hit by any matter of concession fare. You picking on that one tiny aspect of all of our comments, means that you can conveniently ignore the fact that the savannah crowd was the most uncivilized, uncouth group of people i have ever had the misfortune of attending a show with. Seriously, I am a southern girl and I know that the southern hospitality and civility is no joke which is what was so shocking about being at such a horrifying show. Obviously the bigger issue here is the lack of civility by concert goers and the need for savannah residents to have a crash course in show etiquette. You should think about writing that up for your next piece. here is how it can go: don't throw popcorn at people who stand up. don't talk as you would at a social gathering or dinner party. enjoy the show and clap/sing along.maybe leave the north face vests at home. i know savannah is not used to having such high caliber acts, but if you ever expect wilco to return, such lessons need to be learned.

@kameron238 i can't wait to see the setlist, i left after about an hour, the crowd was just too horrifying for words. it really is too bad the crowd was mainly comprised of people who didn't know anything about the amazing band playing.

Re: “Review: Wilco @ Johnny Mercer Theatre

i hate to offer a scathing critique of last night's show, but i don't think savannah is really ready for this kind of high level rock show a band like Wilco brings based on my view from the middle of the house. the crowd there was an even mix of dude bro southerners in dress shirts and north face vests, hipsters who needed to shower, and bewildered looking old people who i am pretty sure thought they'd bought tickets to the gun show being held at the civic center this weekend. when you mention the crowd stood and stood some more, you should also add what i saw from my seat: the bewildered old people mentioned above throwing popcorn, ice and other items at people in front of them who were standing up, because well, that is what you do at a wilco show. As someone who was thankfully just passing through the south and happened to get tickets for this show, i can saw with all sincerity that i hope Wilco never comes back and what's more, I hope savannah residents can relearn the southern civility and good manners often claimed by those living in this part of the south, because the entire show was dominated not by people singing along, but by people talking. seriously, savannah: good manners matter, even at a concert, especially at a concert. Wilco of course was superb. I will give you that, they always bring it and every musician on that stage is not super talented, but a total class act, however not even that talent can make up for an evening spent standing in a super hostile audience like the one from last night. i couldn't wait to leave town as fast as possible, but of course i was hit on by one of the aforementioned north face wearers while buying a record. note to savannah residents: do not hit on cute girls who own vinyl who are purchasing more vinyl at a show. we know you don't know what you are talking about when you claim to also "own lots of vinyl." not cool, savannah, not cool.
