Win Tix To See Broken Bells @ The Electric Factory


When it comes to music, Danger Mouse (AKA Brian Burton) has been the Zelig at the dawn of the 21st Century, an everywhere man with an uncanny knack for being at the ground zero of the decade’s important pop moments. The Grey Album, wherein the Beatles’ White Album peanut butter got mixed up with Jay-Z’s Black Album chocolate? Check. The Gorillaz sophomore slump-defying second album? Check. Gnarls Barkley’s breakout hit “Crazy”? Check. The Black Keys’ break out hit “Tighten Up”? Been there, done that. The new U2 album? Move over Brian Eno and tell Steve Lillywhite the news. Danger Mouse’s latest zeitgeist-hugging project is Broken Bells, which traffics in shimmering analogue-era pop produced in collaboration with The Shins’ James Mercer. They play Electric Factory on Saturday in support of the new After The Disco, Broken Bells’ study in downtempo chill, with special guest Hamilton Leithauser of The Walkmen.
