Spoon/Deerhunter/The Strange Boys @ 9:30 Club, Washington DC, 3/22/10

Spoon are on the Transference train, in the middle of a couple-month tour supporting their latest. DC photographer Mehan Jayasuriya caught their show last night, and said Britt Daniel and co. mostly stuck to their recent album, but dug out a lot of Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga as well. Worth noting: Spoon began and ended their set with “Me and the Bean” and “Black Like Me” respectively, starting each song as Britt solo before bringing out the rest of the band. He also said Daniel geeked out for most of Deerhunter’s set from the balcony, while Jim Eno videotaped (Deerhunter, not Daniel geeking out). Opening were rising Austin-based Rough Trade crew the Strange Boys. They released their second album, Be Brave, earlier this month. Have a listen:
