The Bay Area Native filmed a cool version of “The News About William” with just acoustic guitar/vocals and trumpet. We think the video, audio, and background came out pretty nicely…hope you like it too!
Sorry about the late notice folks, but we are involved in a drawing for some cool prizes over at the Hoco Festival website. In conjunction with the Artists For Action group you can enter to win raffle items from us, Devotchka, Cris Kirkwood from Meat Puppets, etc. Only $5 to enter… Winners will be picked at the Spoon show tonight at Rialto.
Just added… we’ll be playing a hometown show on Sunday, November 7th in Tucson, AZ at the Rialto! Love it!
For our upcoming tour dates with Arcade Fire we made some new double-sided posters that we’ll be giving away FOR FREE at our merch stand. Below are a couple cell phone pics of what they’ll look like (click for a larger size). Sorry about the grainyness but you get the idea.
Great thanks to Sheila Sachs for designing!
