    Yesterday marked the first day of Wilco’s third annual Solid Sound Festival in North Adams, MA. Jeff Tweedy and Co. headlined the evening with an all-covers set spanning 27 songs and five decades worth of material. Among the highlights: a faithful reworking of Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky” (!) and a blistering rendition of The Replacements’ “Color Me Impressed” featuring special guest Tommy Stinson on guitar. Replay both performances below.

    Update: Also watch Wilco cover Pavement’s “Cut Your Hair”.
