Spafford Debuts Men At Work Cover In Austin


Spafford continued their winter tour on Thursday night at Antone’s in Austin. The Arizona-based quartet fit a debut cover of the Men At Work classic “Who Can It Be Now?” into last night’s first set.

Thursday’s show featured a pair of sets bookended by “People.” The first portion of the song gave way to “Leave The Light On” before Spafford unveiled their take on “Who Can It Be Now?” Men At Work originally released “Who Can It Be Now?” on their 1982 debut studio album Business As Usual. The LP also features “Down Under,” a song Spafford has covered 68 times as per Spaffnerds. “Walls” came next ahead of the set-closing pairing of “Comfortable” and “Shake You Loose.”


Spafford began last night’s second set with a standalone “In The Eyes Of Thieves.” From there, the four-piece worked “When It Falls” into “Double Time.” A take on the Eagles’ “Those Shoes” followed before the band segued from “Legend” into the end of the “People” they began at the start of the show. Recently debuted original “Gold Glittered Hat” served as encore.
