Spoon @ Crystal Ballroom – 6-Sept-2007

Spoon Ga Ga

Last night the 2007 MusicFestNW opened up, with pop heroes of the moment Spoon playing the Crystal Ballroom. I thoroughly enjoyed their set, probably an hour and a half, for the first hour just one tune after another, no fooling around.

Lead man Britt Daniel said that this time the rest of band had come to him here in Portland, and they had been rehearsing a good bit in the last week. They played most all of “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga”, which despite the goofy name is a darn good pop record, one of the year’s best. They also featured the Honey Bear horns on six or seven numbers, borrowed from openers Black Joe Lewis out of Austin, TX.

Looks like Spoon is touring the U.S. for the next couple months, so check ’em out!
