Broken Bells 6/7/10
Sorry for the delay, with all this World Cup action it's hard to get these posts done in the morning! Started off a good night by going out to Hard Times Springfield for a few beers before heading to 930 for the show. They have a great selection of brews and always play the Nationals. Enough of that and on to the show. The Broken Bells are one part James Mercer of the Shins and one part Danger Mouse and a few other parts of backup players. Honestly I only heard "The Long Road" prior to the show but I like the Shins and really like Danger Mouse's production skills. They played a mellow yet focused set that to sum it up sounded like a Shins record produced by Danger Mouse, no surprise there. The Mouse played drums and keys and as Mike said, "this is the kind of good music I'd like to hear in the background of a movie". That's deep! Til next time!
