Thread: Spoon: Subheadliners or first name on the third line

    Default Spoon: Subheadliners or first name on the third line

    They've gotta be there this year, with a new album planned. Where does everyone see them on the poster?

    While I like Spoon and enjoy seeing them live, they are nowhere near the draw that you've imagined.

    TV on the Radio have a comparable draw and same amount of boredom as a live performer as Spoon but that didn't stop organizers from putting them as the first band on the third line and early evening on the Main Stage.

    I would love to see Spoon there. If they def have a new album coming out in the spring time (don't know if they do or not), then they will be there.

    They have kind of fallen off.

    They were good in 05 though.

    Entirely possible. Their new album should be out by early spring, so it would make sense that they'd want to do a tour of the festivals.

    They did Almost Acoustic two years ago. Why would it be a shock this year?

    They were at the same spot on the Treasure Island poster as TV on the Radio, so at least back then the draw was comparable. I agree they don't seem to be as big as they used to. I have yet to see them live; it would be good to see them release a big album.

    To answer the question, they're third-liners for now.

    for that exact reason.

    do they even have a new album out? kroq is often shitty, but they DO try to stay hip and current.

    Their star was on the rise, then, and they've always drawn above-average in the Bay Area.

    New album in early spring. I doubt that they play KROQ's Acoustic Christmas, but it's possible since they're playing So Cal around then.

    I think Spoon is still just as popular as they were before but just needs a new album to reignite the hype and relevance. They grew a huge fan base with past two albums. I don't think they've loss fans at all. They're headlining a show out in NYC or D.C. somewhere with Phoenix and Passion Pit opening in December.

    Yeah and MGMT was on the same line at Treasure Island as Paul McCartney does that mean they could headline Coachella? Treasure Island isnt as big of a fest as Coachella.

    Since the show list is very minimal...
    August 29 // Chemical Brothers w/ Chromeo & Yacht @ Hollywood Bowl
    September 26 // Vampire Weekend w/ Beach House & the Very Best @ Hollywood Bowl
    October 5 // ARCADE FIRE @ Henry Miller Library
    October 13 // Corin Tucker Band @ The El Rey
    (someone should give me Sufjan Stevens tickets, aint got none of those)

    Who is spoon? First act in the Gobi imo.
    Hey, the offensive linemen are the biggest guys on the field, they're bigger than everybody else, and that's what makes them the biggest guys on the field.

    i'm not entirely in love with Spoon, but when I saw them open for Beck last year they were really, really good! Certainly blew MGMT off the stage that night

    i support them being at Coachella, but I also agree that they do not have the draw OP thinks they do, especially against TV on the Radio

    Not that big a draw, but would catch their set for sure.

    From p4k:

    Just when you thought Spoon topped-out when it came to making staggeringly consistent indie rock albums, they kept on doing you one better. Considering these guys made three of our favorite albums of the decade, we're hoping they can come up with as much greatness in the 2010s.

    So, Happy Friday: The band's seventh LP, Transference, is due out January 26 in North America via Merge and January 25 in Europe via Anti-.

    The record features 11 songs produced by the band, including recent single "Got Nuffin", not to mention tracks called "I Saw the Light" and "Out Go the Lights". Lights, people, lights! Peruse the other song titles at your leisure below:

    (New Spoon!)


    Transference:

    01 Before Destruction
    02 Is Love Forever?
    03 The Mystery Zone
    04 Who Makes Your Money
    05 Written in Reverse
    06 I Saw the Light
    07 Trouble Comes Running
    08 Goodnight Laura
    09 Out Go the Lights
    10 Got Nuffin
    11 Nobody Gets Me But You

    One of the days of Coachella 2010 could very well turn out to be a boring indie all star showcase. Here's the starting of a poster idea:

    Arcade Fire
    Pavement (other subheadliner)
    Spoon (other third line act) (other third line act)

    It depends how well this next record does, but I could see them barely making it onto the third line.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    Pavement isn't really boring though. Have not seen arcade fire but i hear they're good as well. Spoon is good but a little boring
