Late Night Picks of the Night: Wilco & Etta James

I usually only do one Pick of the Night but I thought this warrented two picks.

Wilco will be on Conan tonight at 11 PM (repeated at 1 AM, I believe) on TBS.

Tavis Smiley will have a tribute to the late great Etta James, who passed away over the weekend.  I got to see Etta live once back in the 90's at one of the late great Philly summer music festivals (Jambalaya Jam, RiverBlues).  She was rather large then, but still was shaking her big ol' butt in provocative ways and could still belt out a tune.  It was a great show and an honor to see her.  Tavis Smiley is on PBS at various times so check your local listings.
