Spoon adds Friday record-store signing before amphitheater show
Never mind Moon Week, here's Spoon Week! The titanic Austin indie outfit's first-ever best-of compilation, "Everything Hits at Once," will be out Friday via Matador Records, just in time for the band's performance that evening at the Austin360 Amphitheater on a bill with Beck and Cage the Elephant. And now there's an afternoon signing-party at Waterloo Records as well.
Pre-order, or purchase on-site, a copy of either "Everything Hits at Once" (available on CD and vinyl) or the 7-inch single for "No Bullets Spent" — the album's one new track — to get a guaranteed-admission wristband for the signing event, which runs from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. Note that they'll sign one item per customer, and will only sign these two new releases.
The band appeared last week on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," performing "No Bullets Spent" on-air along with several more songs that the program posted on YouTube:
Waterloo, by the way, also features free 5 p.m. in-store performances this week by Guy Forsyth & Jeska Bailey on Thursday and Cherubs on Friday. And they'll have former Austinite Will Sexton with his wife Amy LaVere the following Friday, Aug. 2.
