Indie rockers Spoon played two shows in a row this week at Bowery Presents’ newest venue, Brooklyn Steel, to a packed house both evenings. Wednesday night’s performance was live-streamed Pitchfork’s YouTube and Facebook and remains available to watch online for those not lucky enough to catch it live.

The band synonymous with consistency has been out on tour supporting their latest album, Hot Thoughts, filled with infectious energy, unobtrusively catchy tunes and bouts of psychedelia. Wednesday’s setlist boasted six songs from Hot Thoughts and selections reaching back to 2001’s Girls Can Tell

Spoonheads got their fill of hits with “I Turn My Camera On,” “Do You,” and the undoubted favorite “The Underdog,” from 2007’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga.

Spoon’s artful frontman Britt Daniel recently chatted with Long Island Weekly about the band’s successes. See Spoon: Pop’s Best Kept Secret for the full interview.
