You already saw shots from Spoon and Deerhunter’s DC show, but Radio City Music Hall is a tour stop worth documenting. To that end, Dan Harris noted that Britt Daniel’s parents were beaming and taking photos of their son during their set. Photographer Natasha Ryan also took pictures of their son, as well as openers Deerhunter and the Strange Boys, who’ve both been part of Spoon’s current tour. Spoon brought out a horn section to enlarge some songs, because RCMH’s 6,000-seat auditorium can sometimes dwarf some performers. Eleanor Friedberger, Dan Boeckner, and White Rabbits’s Stephen Patterson came up to do songs with the band, who paid them back by assisting on some of theirs. Boeckner and Spoon did Wolf Parade’s “Modern World.” Yes there’s video:
Friedberger chose “Waiting To Know You” from Bitter Tea, while Patterson helped out with their cover of The Damned’s “Love Song.” We’ll update with vid if it pops.
