Cage The Elephant and Manchester Orchestra @ Showbox SoDo [Photo Gallery]
Manchester Orchestra took the middle spot for the Seattle date, and they didn’t disappoint. The Atlanta five-piece knows how to rock, but were outperformed when it came to the energy level of Cage The Elephant. So I’m glad Cage went last, because the excitement buildup of the show would have fallen flat on its ass if it was the other way around. It would be hard for anyone to match Cage’s energetic performance.
Frontman Matt Shultz was pretty much a tornado on the stage from start to finish. They played nothing but the hits all night long, all the while peppering the crowd with praise for being so awesome. Matt also dove off the stage no less than four times in their seventy-minute set, with the final time ending up standing upright on top of the crowd for the last song. All in all, a great night of music.
