It was my 2nd night seeing Spoon at Stubbs, their 3rd and final of the Spoon X3 mini-festival. The place was packed once again, but this night, during the regular set, things seemed a little off. Britt was having tech problems, I think with his monitor, and it just changed the energy completely from the show I saw on Thursday. Britt was quite gracious, thanking everyone for their patience, only once, not going on about it, saying "You deserve better than this." But, they got things adjusted in time for the two encores and Spoon completely ripped it. Check out the cover of the Stones' "Rocks Off" for the closer.

Atlas Sound opened. It was different. The guy played lots of loops and samples on his guitar. He was a bit awkward in front of such a large crowd, but he had his moments. See for yourself in the video below. I didn't arrive in time for the first band, The Strange Boys.

Black Like Me - I recorded it on Thurs, but didn't get the pretty intro arrangement on that one.

Hi Cindy!

Great videos! Looks like you had a fun Spoon run. They sound really good. Saw them last year here in Pittsburgh--they were a bit uneven then, but sound put together here. Enjoyed their version of "Rocks Off". Will be interesting to compare to Rhett and the boys version...if it ever shows up on iTunes!?!

Hope all is well. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to your next posting.
