Barely a week after Spoon sprung their quick new Got Nuffin' EP on our unsuspecting ears, the quartet now turns their energetic drive towards efforts of festival promoting with SPOONX3, a consecutive trilogy of hot nights that find the band nuzzling themselves amongst a number of handpicked artists (Black Joe Lewis!), in an effort to showcase not only some new material from their forthcoming album, but also how serious this city is about its namesake (however self-christened it may be).
The venue? Austin (the land of music festivals) and its large-yet-oddly-intimate Stubb's Amphitheater which somewhat recently (SXSW) had the pleasure of playing part in what was probably the smallest Metallica show since 1982. The bill? Every spectrum of the musical landscape including Quasi, Dale Watson and the Strange Boys.
Tickets look to be right at $28 per night and are still available. Check the lineup though, all three nights look to be worth it, (Spoon's playing every night).
July 9 - Spoon, Quasi, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears
