The band made a surprise appearance at the show following their headline set at the State Theatre in Portland
Spoon played a Spoon cover band’s after party last night (June 20) following their own headline show at the State Theatre in Portland.
Local cover band Jeff Beam’s Loudspeaker Wallpaper had arranged to follow Spoon’s headline show with an after party at the smaller Empire venue nearby.
The cover band were due to play Spoon’s third album ‘Girls Can Tell’ (2001) and fourth album ‘Kill The Moonlight’ (2002) in full.
Surprising fans and the cover band, Spoon attended the after party and eventually jumped on stage to join them, using their equipment to play two songs, report Stereogum.
Following the event, Jeff Beam posted on the after party’s Facebook page, describing the night as “completely surreal.”
Spoon played ‘The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine’ from their fifth album, 2005’s ‘Gimme Fiction’, and ‘Jonathan Fisk’ from ‘Kill The Moonlight’.
