“The Daily Show,” which will be shooting four episodes in Austin next week, has announced the first three of its guests.

Gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, U.S. congressman Joaquin Castro and Austin band Spoon will appear on the show. Davis will be on Monday’s episode, Castro will be a guest Tuesday and Spoon will perform on the show Thursday.

The set of four shows, dubbed “Democalypse 2014: South by South Mess” will tape at Zach Theatre and air 10 p.m. each night on Comedy Central. In a press release, Comedy Central says that in addition to host Jon Stewart, correspondents including Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Jordan Klepper, Jessica Williams, Al Madrigal and Aasif Mandvi will be doing reports and field pieces. (What, no Jessica Williams?)

Spoon seems excited:
