Spoon

Spoon played Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (9/13) with Sean Bones, one of two shows that the band played yesterday with the first being a video shoot at Cake Shop. At MHOW, Spoon covered their recent LP Transference and reached back as far as 1998's A Series of Sneaks for the opener "Car Radio". Everything in between seemed represented as well, with Spoon even tagging on a pair of covers: "Modern World" (Wolf Parade) and "No Time" (Jay Reatard).

Spoon has no other East Coast dates scheduled at the moment, though the band is scheduled to play the West Coast (leading up to Matador 21) and the Southwest (leading up to Austin City Limits) before jetting out to the EU. Full tour dates, pics/video from MHOW, and setlists from MHOW and Cake Shop are below...

One of the best Spoon shows I've ever seen and I've seen a lot. For those who complained they were "boring" or "not good live" after seeing them at RCMH or open for Arcade Fire at MSG, this was proof that on the right night in the right venue this band can kill.

The crowd was particularly raucous (in a good way!) Some real fans in there that went wild and got Spoon to do a second encore. (That's definitely rare.)

Over all, the band seemed on point and in their element. Loved when Britt said "You guys are making me believe." Or somethign like that. Summed up the night.

Gotta agree 3:07. Haven't had a chance to upload my videos; but, I was right up there front and center. I had seen them back in the day and at Lollapalooza; but, this show was undeniably the best I've seen. The energetic vibrancy was fantastic and put the show on the same level as two days ago with Interpol. It truly was a special show. I was hoping for something off Telefono; but, I knew it was a pipe-dream.

Posted by CNC | September 14, 2010 3:11 PM

Ha, Britt doesn't even like Telefono. Doubt they'd ever go there.

NOT better than MSG despite better venue. No horn section. Spoon lite. Much like Spoon of old.

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2010 3:16 PM

Disagree. No need for horns. Could take them or leave them. MSG didn't feel like a real Spoon show; last night showed why people like Spoon in the first place.

Cherrybomb and Underdog without horns? Come
on. Sounded like an unfinished demo. Lot of dead space.

Tons of tickets could be had outside the place. One guy giving away a ticket for free. Mixed group of rowdies who didn't even know the music. I I watched one giant fat bald guy push his way in front of tiny Asian dude who was with his date trying to enjoy the show. The behemoth left once he realized it wasn't death metal or jay z.

Dig spoon, but wearing a sailor hat?! Come on now .. you deserve to get robbed .. Or, at least slapped.

your payment was having to sit through Sean Bones, just awful.

Was Sean Bones only booked because one of his songs is called Sugar in My Spoon?

Posted by Anonymous | September 14, 2010 3:41 PM

Right-on 3:32 - Cherrybomb lacked some serious Hummus.

The sailor hat was the guy from Sean Bones, dude. doubt you'd see Eric Harvey or Rob Pope sporting that look, ha.

Show was good; Interpol was better.

Sean Bones blew me away. Great sound. Great vibe. Been hearing his name around town for a while and this show sold me.

Has anyone ever utilized a spoon for hummus?
Personally I always use dipping items such as pita triangles and baby carrots... I would be curious if anyone has an opinion on utilizing such a classic silverware device for hummus consumption.

Posted by Anonymous | September 15, 2010 2:17 AM

I wouldn't be lying if I said I have used a spoon for hummus consumption. There have been (sad) moments when the pita and carrots have run out...yet the hummus addiction never leaves.

In regards to the show...it seemed to me that D. Britt needed to: get that horn section on Cherry Bomb, stop constantly adjusting his effects pedals, and eat some mo-fuckin' hummus. Not to be a jerk but I expected a better show.

p.s. - To the people who threw $ on stage...keep your trust fund in your pockets and stop being assholes.

I didn't get why someone threw two bucks up there but someone did during "Who Makes Your Money." Maybe the person thought the ticket price should have been $2 more?
