SLCene Suggests: Spoon at The Depot

by on December 7, 2014


SPOON, THE DEPOT, Monday, Dec. 8, 9 p.m., $30

Even though Spoon has enjoyed some commercial success through their existence, it still seems like the Austin-based crew led by Britt Daniel are kind of a cult band. Despite a sound blending cool post-punk with insistent, hooky pop, Spoon remains a theater-sized attraction on their tours, rather than arena-sized. That’s a shame, because the quintet is one of the best live acts around, delivering consistently great shows that get audiences moving in ways few indie-rock crews can boast. The band’s latest album, They Want My Soul, is another in a long line of worthy listens, holding up just fine alongside older faves like Girls Can Tell and Kill the Moonlight. Expect a heavy dose of the new material, the band’s first in four years, when they play Salt Lake on Monday. A Giant Dog opens the show.
