Broken Bells

"Complete with a stage full of awesome musicians, a cool video projection in the background and James Mercer singing only to me (ok, that part may have just been in my imagination) [Broken Bells put on] a pretty far out show. I thought maybe the live performance of their songs might have gotten a little cooler, the guys didn't really stray too much from the album version, which was a little disappointing, but they did play a cool cover of a Black Keys song." -[Via Le Shrn]
Broken Bells and Elf Power teamed up for a show at Terminal 5 in NYC on Monday night (10/11). Through the magic of television, Broken Bells also appeared on two LA-based talk shows on Monday and Tuesday, taped when the band was in LA to also play the Wiltern in LA last week (and at the Wiltern). Between LA and NYC, they stopped by for a set at Austin City Limits which also had them covering Sparklehorse and Black Keys songs (both artists that Broken Bells member Danger Mouse has worked with as a producer). Full T5 setlist below.

why are there so many bands with the word BELLS in it? I'm not hating on this one,I don't know them. But I can think of at least, 7 other bands with BELLS in their name. A little creativity will go a long way dudes.

Good Show. I hope the take the music to a more experimental and jam sounding side.

Shins? Isn't this the ex-Jawbox band?

Broken Bells were better when they were just a neutral milk hotel cover band.

this band is kind of lame. i don't know what it is, just can't get into it at all. and this is coming from a shins fan.

really want a new shins record at this point, though. even if mercer fired half the band for some douchey reason.

Are Elf Power the band from Purchase College? Is that another band with the word Elf in it?

4:55 - Mercer basically is The Shins anyway, those other guys didn't actually do much.

And yeah Broken Bells is kinda one-note...just too chill
