Britt Daniel returns to San Diego, where he's spent a lot of time living and recording in the past.

Spoon is one of indie-rock's finest bands, consistently releasing critically acclaimed albums. Their most recent, Transference, dropped in January of this year and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. Originally from Austin, Texas, and currently based out of Portland, Ore., lead singer/guitarist Britt Daniel spent a lot of time in San Diego writing and recording, and tonight the band takes over all-ages Soma. Tickets are still available.
