Spoon is stirring the pot

Spoon will headline a show at Radio City Music Hall on March 26.

Is Spoon getting too big for its core fans? Give a listen to their new album, out next week, streaming now at NPR.org. From what I’ve heard so far, Britt Daniel and company have made their sound tighter and better focused than ever, without losing its identity.

But with a headlining gig at Radio City Music Hall on March 26 (tickets go on sale this Saturday), I have to wonder whether they’ve really broken through or if they’re over-reaching.

I plan to be there at Radio City to decide for myself. See you there?
