It’s been a couple of years since Spoon has gotten together to tour as a band–but the Austin act graced their hometown with a show last night at Hotel Vegas. People came together quickly after the band announced the surprise concert via Twitter, too.

Last night’s show was a warmup for a quick Southwestern tour starts tonight in Memphis, and takes them on to Nashville, Atlanta, and New Orleans. Then the band will spend most of summer on the festival circuit. That makes sense, since the band has been impressively soulful and mainstream ever since  2007’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. We should get Spoon’s eighth proper full-length release by the end of the year, too–maybe around when the band shows up for both weekends of the Austin City Limits Music Festival in October. Check out the video from last night’s show below, and see why you should probably be making your own summer plans around the band’s schedule now…
