Since we last saw the band at the 7th Street Entry, they had a lot more songs, especially because they now have three albums under their collective belts: Sunken (Autumn Tone), Wild Onion (Grand Jury), and their latest Down In Heaven (Grand Jury).
Majority of their 30-min set consists of Down In Heaven songs, including their latest single, ‘Butterfly’. Also, once again, lead vocals were traded by the three guitarists: Cadien, Clay, and Jack.
Portugal the Man
There weren’t any ‘hip hop’ styled songs on this set, so we’re not sure if they previewed some new songs... many of their songs were of the dance-variety from Evil Friends, such as ‘Hip Hop Kids’ and closer ‘Purple Yellow Red and Blue’.
Cage the Elephant
New songs from their fourth studio album Tell Me I’m Pretty were sprinkled in with fan favorite tracks like ‘Take It or Leave It’ (done early in the set) and personally I feel was their biggest hit song ‘Ain't No Rest for the Wicked’ (done midset).
New songs like ‘Too Late to Say Goodbye’ and ‘Cold Cold Cold’ were surprisingly well-received from the fans, as you can clearly see them singing along to the catchy lyrics.
By the time their latest hit song ‘Mess Around’ was played, the mostly younger audience started taking their chance with body surfing for the remaining show.
Cage the Elephant proved that they are one of the best live bands touring today, thanks to Matthew Shultz’ impressive high-energy performance and their many catchy hit songs (all those #1 singles on the Billboard charts can’t be a coincidence).
Tell Me I’m Pretty is out now on RCA Records.
