Spoon To Play Three Night Festival At Stubb's - SPOONX3

Picture from the HAD Archive

As Spoon continues to work on their next album, they also continue to schedule a smattering of live dates across the country. The latest entry comes in the form of a three night stand at Stubb's BBQ in Austin, TX. It's something of a "hometown" show for the band (despite Britt Daniel no longer being a resident), and as such is being billed as a festival entitled "SPOONX3".

Each show will be something of a triple bill, and supporting acts will be different each night. The support includes ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead, Black Joe Lewis & The Honey Bears, Low, Dale Watson, Atlas Sound, and The Strange Boys. What's more, the press release promises a taste of new material from Spoon's new record. Enticing, to say the least.

Suffice it to say, if you can make it to Austin, this is a tasty musical treat that transcends even the goodness that Spoon typically provides. What's more, presale tickets (including a discounted three day pass) are on sale now - get em while they're hot!

BONUS: We just discovered this vid on Spoon's site...tasty!
