I finally saw the band live in Madison last week. It was such a great show. Wow. The band was really tight. I was front row, right in front of Britt's mic. I could touch the stand if I wanted to. I talked to him as he came out for the encore, I told him his beer that was sitting there was warm by now. He laughed, said he'd take care of it, then got the guy from back stage to get him a cold one. Haha.
This isn't a "show review". Just some thoughts.
My least 2 favorite songs on the album (For Your Heart & Neopolitans) the longer, more synth based ones were AMAZING live. Some songs they jammed a little more on, but in general they stayed close to the album version. I really liked the live version of Civilian Stripes.
They also played a new song that Dan sang on. On the set list it was called "Chained". That's the only song I recorded. The sound quality isn't too good since it was so loud. But the video looks good.
They are just a good rock band. Obviously as a Spoon fan I like them. But just as a music fan, they are a new rock band, and they sound great.
I met Alex after the show. He was a super nice dude. He knew the city I worked in, and used to live with people from there.
It was the first show I ever went to by myself, and it was a lot of fun.
