Is Spoon playing Antone’s tonight?

UPDATE: The show is now sold out

Some local fans of indie rock band Spoon (including a Statesman staffer) received an email today with the following image indicating the once Austin-based act will be playing Antone’s tonight.

The email included a link to buy $10 tickets for tonight’s show, which is listed on the Antone’s site as a double bill between Jai Malano and Don Leady and his Rockin’ Revue.

We don’t know for a fact that Spoon will be playing Antone’s tonight, but we do know that they have a new album due out in March. Their ninth studio album is due out on Matador Records in March. The last time they were breaking in a new live set, back in 2014, before “They Want My Soul” dropped, the band did a surprise set at Hotel Vegas.

Antone’s has not yet responded to a query about this, so it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth the gamble. Worst case scenario, you get to check out a set from a fabulous rising soul singer who we fell in love with at Austin City Limits Festival.
