Spoon, Watson Twins @ Cinespace, 7/17/07
I have been out of LA for about 5 weeks now for work in a sleepy Nor Cal town. So needless to say I have been a bit out of the loop. A few things I do know: first and foremost, the new Spoon album Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is pretty fuckin brilliant; I also know that Spoon played a "secret" show at Little Radio the previous night and it was quite the scene.
As I rolled back into the 323 yesterday afternoon I heard Spoon on with Indie 103.1's Jonesy and heard about another little "secret" show (LA may very well be the WORST place to have these quote/unquote secret shows) at Cinespace with the Watson twins.
The scene was, well, just that: a scene. The line for this "secret" show sprawled from the Cinespace entrance, down Hollywood and down Ivar nearly all the way back to Selma; needless to say, there were a lot of disappointed people.
The Watson Twins opened things up with their sublime, soothing brand of country/folk. The crowd was mostly apathetic to the Twins, talking and drinking while they played, which was a shame as the back room of Cinespace is quite small and it seemed at times the quiet tunes of the Twins was drowned out by the constant buzz of talking. The band was solid, however, delivering a versatile set which included a fantastic cover of the Cure's "Just Like Heaven" and the poppy "Fade Out."
