Spoon is Coming To San Antonio


  • Facebook, Spoon

Spoon, one of the best bands ever to come out of Austin (and that’s saying something), hasn’t adjusted its approach to music much throughout its nearly 25 years of activity.

What the band does is simple enough (at least in theory): write killer, crafty rock songs with a tasteful pop sensibility, songs that crackle with the electricity of punk rock and wink with the off-kilter quirk of indie rock.

While the rawness of Spoon’s earliest material has transitioned into a far more sophisticated sound, the talent, ingenuity (within a fairly finite spectrum), and energy is still there. In fact, we’d like to submit that the band’s most recent couple of albums, They Want My Soul (2014) and Hot Thoughts (2017), rank right up there with Spoon’s best work.

In the live setting, Spoon, long revered for letting it all hang out, is not to be missed.
