I made the most of my day off yesterday, starting out at the free day show at Piano's, sponsored by Brooklyn Vegan. (Thanks, too, to Svedka vodka for all the free Bloody Marys and Burritoville for the free food-to-go.)

After a short break, my friend Pete and I caught a cab uptown to see the sold-out Spoon show at Roseland. I saw them at ACL last month, and thought they were deserving of a second listen indoors. Opening were The Ponys, who were a bit in over their head, but good enough for filler.
