Broken Bells

"Broken Bells, the hotly anticipated new project between Danger Mouse and the Shins' James Mercer, had a coming-out-party Friday night, performing at the intimate Bootleg Theater for industry pals and those lucky enough to score some of the tickets that went on sale Friday morning. With a capacity of about 200, tickets didn't last long, and Pop & Hiss was forced to head home to watch some Olympic ice dancing instead.*

Nevertheless, plenty of amateur videographers were in attendance..."" [LA Times]

Multiple live videos from that first, and suprise, live Broken Bells show below.

And it was just announced that Broken Bells will perform at the NPR SXSW showcase at Stubb's on Wednesday March 17th. That's the same show that Spoon, The Walkmen, and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings are also playing. Luckily I've seen the last three bands live many times and Broken Bells are playing Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on March 10th (tickets on sale this week), because that night in Austin I'll be down the street at the BrooklynVegan showcase at Club DeVille.
