Bowling Green, KY, natives Cage The Elephant present the harder side of Southern influenced rock with Matthew Shultz’s rhythmic vocal delivery and raw lyrics. Shultz’s voice paired with energetic punk guitar riffs, funk bass and drum grooves creates a unique sound that comes across well at live performances. After relocating to England to build a following across the pond, Cage The Elephant has returned to the motherland and is taking the US by storm. Catch them Sept. 3 in Atlantic City at the Borgata or Sept. 5 at PNC Bank Arts Center.
