I'm looking for insight from some of you who have seen them live. I have seen them once at a festival and they were "decked-out" with horns and all. I'm getting psyched and so please share some of your experiences. (good and bad) :rock

i've seen them more times than i can recall and they've all been pretty fabulous. i saw them right after ga ga ga ga ga came out and they didn't have a horn section. it sounded weird to hear some of those songs without horns! then, i saw them again a couple of months later and they had the horns. it was freakin' awesome!

 

their shows are always pretty high energy. and they play a fair amount from older albums too which is a big bonus for me. in the last year or so the crowds have gotten kind of "fratty" but it's not like an OAR show or anything :lol

 

it's mostly been my experience that britt doesn't do a lot of talking in between songs though. i wish he would but maybe he's not very funny or something so it's probably for the best. haha! you're going to have a blast. i've never had a bad time at a spoon show!

I just saw a show of theirs a few months back in Columbus (for only 5 bucks!). They played most of Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga and they played stuff from most all their other records. A good mix of songs. Britt Daniel is a great performer and showman. You're in for a good rock show.

I've seen them three times, have yet to disappoint.

 

They are playing in Nashville the same night as the New Pornographers, so unfortunately I won't get to see them a fourth time. However, Spoon is playing a Vandy sponsored festival and I can just imagine a bunch of drunken undergrads that would probably not care about them anyway would ruin the experience anyway.

I saw them on the Gimme Fiction tour. They were ok, pretty lackluster though and I left feeling pretty disappointed since I love Spoon so much. The glowing reviews make me think I caught them on an off-night. Jim Eno was a nice dude to talk to though.

If you've never seen them before, I recommend seeing them. I saw them three or four times last year and the performances were somewhat uneven: amazing at Schubas; solid at Lollapalooza; deadly dull at Austin City Limits. Still, they're a great band with a great back catalog to draw from, and definitely worth checking out live.

i blame that 100% of the ridiculous heat. i was dying during their set so i can only imagine how uncomfortable they were.

 

i think they're much better headlining their own shows than at large-scale festivals.

Very true. I questioned the wisdom of their matching, all-black outfits during that set!

 

And I'll agree most any band is better at their own gig than at a festival.
