After months of hype surrounding their new collaborative project, James Mercer (of The Shins) & Danger Mouse (of Gnarls Barkley) definitely did not disappoint. Last night's performance was only the 2nd show of Broken Bells' debut tour yet it seemed as though James & Danger had been making music together for years.
James Mercer's voice sounds fantastic live & Danger Mouse is a pro on both drums & keyboard. I was also a big fan of the psychedelic lighting visualizations along with the band's sharp shadows cast onto the main screen behind them.
Other highlights included Broken Bells' beautiful cover of Crimson & Clover & the 2 song encore where they played one song I didn't recognize but LOVED (I assume/hope it'll be on their next album) then closed out the entire show with an awesome rendition October.
