So I got invited to go see Cage the Elephant this Friday and I'm pretty broke. Like possibly dipping into my overdraft broke. My question is A) Have any of you seen these guys live and B) Is it worth it?

    They just came thorugh San Francisco, playing at a small club up the street from my place, and my girlfriend's friend's band was on the bill ... so we went.

    I thought they were a lot of fun ... high energy ... songs were a mix of G.Love meets Beck ... lead singer was giving off a David Johansen/Iggy Pop vibe.

    Again, a lot of fun, kept you moving all set long.

    Can't imagine it's that much to get in ... we only paid $8 or $10 when they were here.

    Go out for dinner one less time next week and go out and enjoy the show.

    G.Love was one of the best shows energy-wise I've ever been to. Glad to hear it. Thanks

    they opened for QOTSA two years ago here, got a meh from me, though it was terrible sound all night.

  • So I cracked and ended up going. All honesty aside I wish I hadn't gone. They were all over the place. Nothing sounded like it was suppost to, and they just kept saying the Celtics were going to go all the way. (now if they don't I have to blame Cage the Elephant)

    That's disappointing to hear. I was gonna try and see them at apw. Hopefully they were just having an off night

    I was actually at the show Saturday, too. I knew nothing about them going in (my friend had an extra) and thought they sounded great and put on a hell of a show. I really don't see a G.Love/Beck comparison at all...definitely punkier. I'd say they're absolutely worth checking out.
