"Our only real desire was to make a festival we wouldn't be miserable at"

The quote in the title is from Wilco's Jeff Tweedy in the trailer, which is embedded above.

Wilco's Solid Sound Festival returns to MASS MoCA this coming weekend. If you've attened in the past, or just been curious, you might be interested in a new documentary about the festival -- Every Other Summer -- that was released last week. Blurbage (emphasis added):

Directed by Christoph Green and Brendan Canty, Every Other Summer is a documentary about the Solid Sound Festival, Wilco's three day music and arts gathering that takes place once every two years at MASS MoCA. Shot in 2013 and featuring performances by Wilco, Neko Case, Yo La Tengo, The Dream Syndicate, Lucius, Foxygen, Sam Amidon, Sean Rowe, The Relatives and appearances from Reggie Watts, John Hodgman, Jen Kirkman and others, Every Other Summer offers a peek into the festival's utopian vibe, and the positive transformative impact it has had on the small rust belt town of North Adams, MA.

The doc is available to rent for $4.99 via Vimeo.

I don't think that's what's meant by "serpentine belt replacement".
