Wilco with Tommy Stinson

On Friday at its Solid Sound festival in Massachusetts, Wilco played a 27-song all-request set that featured exactly one Wilco song… and 26 covers by artists ranging from Television, Bob Dylan and Big Star to the Modern Lovers, Neil Young and even Daft Punk — not to mention The Replacements’ “Color Me Impressed” with an actual ‘Mat, Tommy Stinson.

Below, via the aptly named Geoff Tweaty, you can check out video of Stinson — on guitar, not bass — joining Wilco on stage for the Hootenanny classic, and check out the killer setlist. The festival, incidentally, also featured performances from the reunited Dream Syndicate and Miracle Legion’s Mark Mulcahy.

Plus, you can download a soundboard recording of the entire show via NYC Taper (stream “Color Me Impressed” and “Marquee Moon” below, too).
