In the spirit of gearing up for 3 days of Lollapalooza, I went to the Broken Bells and Wild Cub concert last night at House of Blues. What a great show! The House of Blues in Chicago is really crazy. You can tell it’s an old venue right when you walk in. Then imagine throwing a painted junk yard on the walls and there you go!
So Broken Bells is made up of two amazing artists merged into a whole lot of awesome: Brian Burton (who you might know as Danger Mouse) & James Mercer (lead singer of The Shins). Wild Cub is a newer band, made up of 5 guys from Nashville. They’re pretty great too. If you haven’t heard of them yet, give them a listen.
