In House #1661: Built to Spill in Salt Lake City Tonight; New David Bazan, Mountain Goats
A couple of months later than originally had been planned, Built to Spill hits The Depot in Salt Lake City tonight in support of their recent triumphantish return, You In Reverse (no word on whether or not Doug Martsch will be dunking on Andrei Kirilenko). Nearly fifteen years after Martsch formed the band with modest expectations, BtS released their sixth album, but first in five years, in April. The results, both live and recorded, haven't disappointed. With much of Built to Spill's output borne from open jam practices, the fact that the core of the band (now officially including Jim Roth, though he's played with the band since the Keep It Like a Secret days) has been consistent for the last six years has no doubt helped matters. Tonight's performance is the last in the first wave of their U.S. tour, which reconvenes for another long series of dates in mid-September.
