    Last Night: Wilco, Nick Lowe at the Music Hall at Fair Park

    Last Night: Wilco, Nick Lowe The Music Hall at Fair Park November 29th, 2011 Better than: seeing Wilco at the UNT auditorium There was an emphasis on the noisier side of Wilco last night, and that was completely fine with the mostly-full Music Hall at Fair Park.
