Social Cues is out via RCA Records
Before the rain could interfere with an unbelievable performance, Cage The Elephant delivered their latest lead singles “Ready to Let Go” and “Social Cues.” What an amazing moment to finally hear those two tracks live and once the storm settled, the band returned even more determined to deliver something wilder than the weather.
“Mess Around” and “Trouble” revived our souls and led into an epic cut of the group’s timeless breakout single, “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” – which will always incite pure pandemonium. There was no stopping the rockers from there as they rolled through their tracks “Telescope” and “House of Glass” – leading to an all-time favorite, “Cigarette Daydreams.”
After serving “Shake Me Down,” their only cut of the night from Thank You Happy Birthday, Merriweather was graced with yet another CTE hit, “Come a Little Closer” which led to the set closer, “Teeth.” Matt Shultz, who at this point is stripped down to red boxing shorts, a nude-toned singlet, and shoes, jumps off the stage and begins climbing his way through the stunned crowd.
He made it midway through the pavilion before standing atop a barricade, with support from the crowd, and finishing the track to unwavering screams. See my photos from the show below and if you know what’s good for you, catch Cage The Elephant on tour. You won’t regret it and tickets for all future shows are available here.
