Spoon seems to seriously like their NYC fans. In the Spring, they sold out Radio City Music Hall, and in August they opened for Arcade Fire at Madison Square Garden. The “intimate” fans-only show planned for tonight is at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, but in an almost surreal treat, Spoon announced last night that they would play a free show at Cake Shop this afternoon. The set was a live video recording for the song “Nobody Gets Me But You” from 2010’s Transference, but the band continued on and played a forty-minute set of material from five different albums. Although the line outside the venue was long, and it was tight inside Cake Shop, it never got uncomfortable. Spoon made sure of that.
We recorded this set with the DPA microphones mounted six feet from the left side of the PA. Spoon brought along some large subs and as a result, this venue has never sounded better. The recording reflects that high quality. Enjoy!
