"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

So Jeff Tweedy complained about this review of his Tuesday night show at tonight's show. I don't blame him. Michael Hoinski, whoever he is, is a Grumpy Gus who clearly doesn't get Wilco. Hello? "I assassin down the avenue" is brilliant, not Mad Libs set to a melody. And the crowd enjoyed the banter because that's part of the schtick.

Then again, it's the Statesman. This is the paper that endorsed George W. Bush for a second term despite the fact that the vast majority of its subscribers wouldn't have voted for him if their lives depended on it. So a negative review from the Statesman is probably a positive.
