Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga

A few things I realized after last night's "secret" Spoon show at the Granda Theater:

-After five years of living in Dallas, I finally went to the Granada.

-The sound at the Granada is not as bad as people have made it out to be.

-Jack Daniel's sponsored the event. I never forgot that during the entire show.

-I believe I reviewed opening act Sally Crewe's previous CD for Punk Planet. I didn't realize this until a few songs into her set.

-Spoon was great even though I was vaguely familiar with most of their set. There were some songs from the forthcoming Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga along with songs from their entire catalog. There was no "Sister Jack," but we got "I Turn My Camera On," "I Summon You," "Everything Hits at Once" and "Me and the Bean."

-I enjoyed the smoke-free environment until somebody behind me lit up a spliff.

-Time to finish up a 2-CD mix of Spoon tracks. Jason just happened to have all their records.

Smoke-free venues changed concertgoing for me. It does make it obvious when people bring out the joints, though.
