Austin-fave Spoon is coming to town for three shows next week and LAist has two pairs of tickets for all of you fans that love bouncing to Gimme Fiction.

If you'd like to get access to the SOLD OUT show on September 11 at the Henry Fonda Theater, just tell us your favorite lyric from any track (e.g., My boots are on the mend/And they ain't walking home from "Black Like Me") on the band's latest album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, and blow us away by explaining its profound significance to you. The deadline for entering the contest will be 11 pm on Sunday night. You have to be a registered commenter in order to be eligible so we can notify the winners.

Note that a small number of tickets are still available for the Wednesday, September 12 show.

While you ponder whether it's "The Ghost of You Lingers" or "Don't You Evah" which strikes you more deeply, amuse yourself with this video clip of the wildly popular Keepon robot bouncing around to "I Turn My Camera On".
