Wilco Thrills Fans with Intimate Acoustic Set at Euclid Records

When beloved rock band Wilco announced that it planned to perform an acoustic set at Euclid Records before its concert at the Fabulous Fox on August 17, St. Louis was more than a little excited. So it's no wonder that Euclid Records was packed with fans yesterday. The concert was open to the first 150 people to pre-order Wilco's latest album, Schmilco, due out September 9. With wristbands in hand, fans lined the aisles of the store where frontman Jeff Tweedy of Uncle Tupelo once worked. Check out these photos to find yourself in the crowd -- or just catch a glimpse of what it felt like to be one of the lucky people up close and personal with Wilco.
