Episode 89 (2-37) includes Snap Judgment #121: Invisible Cities...Sasquatch Music Festival 2011: Wilco in Concert
From Snap Judgment | 53:57
Sometimes one slip, one wrong turn, or one misplaced word opens a glimpse to the parallel universe humming right beside All-You-Thought-You-Knew. On Snap Judgment's “Invisible Cities,” we tear aside the flimsy curtain hiding the City’s secrets, and dive into the other world next door.

Jeff Tweedy and Co. perform a two-hour set at The Gorge on May 30. This is an unhosted music-only set. If you use it, please credit NPR Music and KEXP for the recording. Available for free to NPR member stations. If you're not an NPR member station, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The following text is from the concert's story page on NPR Music:
Wilco never makes the second record twice, which makes it doubly remarkable that so many of them are tremendous. As formidable as frontman Jeff Tweedy's catalog is, the sonically inventive rock band really stands out on stage — the place where extreme technical skill meets the chemistry and rousing showmanship of passionate rock veterans. Of course, it helps that the group has the luxury of drawing highlights from seven very different records when it performs. To see Wilco on stage is to hear the best of the best.
Recorded live at The Gorge on Monday, May 30, Wilco performs a two-hour, festival-closing set as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
