SPOONX3 in July

If you missed Spoon at the Scoot Inn because you weren't one of the lucky 650 people to buy tickets before they sold out in less than five minutes, fret not. That was just a warm-up show for what feels like a one-band three-day festival. The reigning kings of Austin indie rock are scheduled to headline Stubb's outdoor stage three nights in a row in July. The event, dubbed SPOONX3, has some incredible openers too. The schedule...

NOTE: Trail of Dead will not play after all. They have been replaced with Portland band Quasi. - 7/1/09

July 09 – SPOON, ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears
July 10 – SPOON, Low, Dale Watson
July 11 – SPOON, Atlas Sound, The Strange Boys

Spoon, Trail of Dead, and Black Joe in the same night has the potential to be the best show all year. It pains me to say that because Stubb's outdoor is one of my least favorite venues in town, but it's true.

Tickets go on sale to the masses this Saturday, but you can get down presale style here.

And here are some video previews of some of those openers...
