Spoon, March 17
Spoon may not be the biggest band on the planet, but in so many ways, they're synonymous with the festival. Originally formed in Austin, the rock act has always been there, if not performing, then attending and supporting the cause, growing up with the festival and their hometown.
Their appearance on March 17 at Stubb's will likely be one of the best-attended shows of the night, and their only gig at the festival; it kicks off their tour in support of January's loveable "Transference," an album that gave them their best charting and sales week ever.
