Earlier this week we announced that Austin indie rockers Spoon are set to play their first Nashville concert in seven years, May 8 at Marathon Music Works. The show went on sale today, and from what we’ve heard it’s already going fast, so we’re calling it now: this one’s a sure-thing to sell out. It could be today, it could be next week, or it could be closer to May, but if you’re hoping to check this performance out, you’d better grab those tickets sooner rather than later. If you’re feeling lucky, however, we’re giving away a pair, so keep reading for more on the show and details on how to enter!
Celebrating over two decades of existence, Spoon spent years honing their craft, organically building a cult following, and eventually crossing over to widespread commercial success. Regulars on the festival circuit, though relatively quiet over the past few years, the group are expected to release their eighth studio album, a followup to 2010′s Transference, sometime this year. During their unusually long break between albums, frontman Britt Daniel found success with new project Divine Fits, drummer Jim Eno continued on his prolific stint as a producer, including Nashville’s own Turbo Fruits’ latest, Butter, bassist Rob Pope found renewed success with his former band, The Get Up Kids, and multi-instrumentalist Eric Harvey released a new solo album, Lake Disappointment. As fantastic and diverse as their records are, Spoon are an even greater force to be reckoned with live. The spring is quickly filling up fast, but this is one show you absolutely don’t want to miss!
