Night Running with Cage the Elephant and Beck

Controversial opinion: last night’s lineup at Nortlerly Island consisting of Wild Belle, Spoon, Cage the Elephant, and Beck is better than any single day lineup at Lollapalooza this year. There, I said it! I may have not been able to get off of work in time for Wild Belle and Spoon yesterday, but I have…

Cage the Elephant leaves fans with a serious case of PCD

Is anyone else suffering from some Post Concert Depression after Tuesday night’s Cage the Elephant show?  Hopefully I’m not alone! I’ve seen Cage twice before, but this was my first time shooting them, which was an absolute dream come true.  The captivating Shultz brothers connect with fans in a way that no other band has…

Cage the Elephant @ UIC Pavilion 6/7

Tuesday, in my opinion, is the worst day of the week.  You’re not feeling as rejuvenated as you were on Monday, and Friday still seems so far away.  Things are bleak.  BUT!  Cage the Elephant is coming Tuesday night to the UIC Pavilion, and that should totally add some pep to your step! They boys of…
