Spoon Played Cakeshop - Review, Setlist

While we weren't able to grab more than a few cellphone snaps (it was a video shoot - no pro shots allowed), we were lucky enough to catch up with Spoon at Cake Shop yesterday afternoon. We had to wait for quite a while, but our perseverance paid off when we found ourselves in the front row of a killer nine song set.

Getting together the motivation to deliver killer rock and roll at one in the afternoon has to be a bit of a challenge, but the band were clearly up to it. By the second song, they had the whole room on their side, and despite some (minor) technical hiccups, the vibe was good.

The set was a mix of new and old material, and it all blended well. We got to hear our some of our faves from Transference as well as a blazing version of "Don't Make Me A Target", and an old school shout out to the awesomeness of "Car Radio", at fan request. All in all, our only complaint is that we could have done with about an hour more of music. Luckily, we were patient enough for the evening show, which was right around the corner.
