Fans can catch three nights of Spoon rocking out at Stubb's Amphitheater in the band's hometown of Austin, Texas July 9-11.
Um, sounds like the best three nights of my life, ever!
Britt Daniels and the guys have invited a few of their favorite bands to come along for the fun as special guests. July 9 will feature …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of the Dead and Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears. July 10 features Low and Dale Watson. The last night of the mini-fest includes performances by Atlas Sound and The Strange Boys.
Spoon is currently working in the studio on the band’s as-yet-untitled seventh album, the follow-up to 2007’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. SPOONX3 will feature a sneak peek at some of the new material.
For die-hard Spoon fans that want to catch every second of Spoon plus all the special guests, a three-day pass will set you back $75. Individual tickets are $28 each.
Dangit, why couldn’t Spoon have formed somewhere near Pollstar's headquarters in lovely Fresno, Calif.?!
In addition to SPOONX3, Spoon will be performing at Merge Records’ 20th Anniversary Fest July 22-26 at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, N.C.
Which band would you hand over hard-earned cash to see three nights in a row?
