Spoon to play Portland this Friday

For those in the Pacific Northwest who are wanting a sneak peak at Spoon's upcoming album Transference (to be released January 19, 2010), the band just so happens to be playing in Portland this Friday at the Crystal Ballroom. Listeners are bound to hear a few new tunes in the mix should they attend. Tickets are still on sale (here) for $33 after all the bullshit Ticketmaster surcharges. Opening for Spoon is Austin's very own Black Joe Lewis, complete with his big brass band. For those unfamiliar with this pairing of acts, expect the incorporation of horns during songs like "Underdog," "Jonathan Fisk," and "You Got Yr Cherry Bomb."

This show is the week finale for a series of concerts put on by local Portland radio station 94.7 fm. Dubbed the "December to Remember," the lineup this week at the Crystal Ballroom has been insane! Check out the list of shows below.

12-7 (Monday) - Passion Pit w/ Hockey
12-8 (Tuesday) - Metric w/ Band of Skulls
12-9 (Wednesday) - The Bravery w/ Airborne Toxic Event
12-10 (Thursday) - Vampire Weekend w/ White Rabbits
12-11 (Friday) Spoon w/ Black Joe Lewis
