Spoon to Headline Creative Commons Benefit Concert to Kick Off WIRED NextFest in LA
Cameron Parkins, June 22nd, 2007
We are very pleased to announce that Spoon, the Austin, TX based rock-quartet, will headline a benefit concert for Creative Commons on September 10, 2007, at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles!
The concert will function not only as a fundraiser for CC, but also as a kick off for WIRED NextFest, “a unique world’s-fair-style event showcasing future technologies in design, entertainment, communication, healthcare, transportation, sustainable living and more”. NextFest will be taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center between September 13 and 16 – you can read WIRED’s press release about the concert and NextFest here.
If that wasn’t enough, the concert will also serve as a reunion of sorts for Spoon and “Keepon the Robot”. If you have no clue who or what Keepon is, head over to YouTube and prepare to be mesmerized. Look at that thing move!
This is incredible news – we’ve got our calendars marked and are counting down the days. Tickets go on sale this Saturday (June 23rd) at 10AM and are only $20! Get yours here through Ticketmaster.
