Back in the States and suffering from severe jet lag, I did manage to make it out for this stellar show by Spoon. I saw them a few weeks ago doing an ACL taping, but my seats were in the rafters and no photography was allowed. For this show, I had a nice vantage point from the floor and got to shoot a few photos and videos. They just keep getting better and better. The new guitarist, Alex Fischel, that Britt brought along from Divine Fits has added an unusual energy to the band.
Glad I got to see them this year. They Want My Soul is stellar, and Do You was a great breezy, summer song.
And of course, they played a lot of old favorites.
