Despite having to go to the office on Monday, some Saratogians actually had a three-day weekend. On August 12, a triple-bill for the ages touched down at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) in Saratoga Springs, courtesy of Live Nation, delighting masses of local fans looking to (maybe) relive a bit of their youth from the 1990s—or just looking to kick it aughts-style.

Headliner Beck, who’s been rocking SPAC since 1997, brought his The Night Running Tour to the main stage, with popular ’00s indie acts Cage the Elephant (see: “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked“; their latest album, Social Cues, dropped this past April); and Spoon (see: “I Turn My Camera On,” whose most recent album, Hot Thoughts, dropped in 2017), opening and making their SPAC debuts. (A fourth act, Sunflower Bean, also performed an opening-opening-opening act.)
