Cage The Elephant performed an acoustic set and signed records for fans last night at Fingerprints in Long Beach, CA, showcasing new material from their new album Tell Me I’m Pretty, including the Pixiesque “Trouble” and radio ready “Too Late To Say Goodbye.” They also showcased material from past albums including “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” and “Cigarette Daydreams,” a song that was tailor made for an unplugged performance like this. “Shake Me Down” worked beautifully even without the same intricate instrumentation.
Frontman Matt Shultz got quite animated during “Take It Or Leave It” off of 2013’s Melophobia. That album’s lead single, “Come a Little Closer,” was also performed. At one point, Matt joked about the performance becoming his brother Brad’s standup comedy hour. Watch video clips below of the performance!
