Broken Bells Cover Neutral Milk Hotel At Debut Gig

Danger Mouse and James Mercer hit-up The Road for “The High Road” video. Now they’ve actually taken Broken Bells to the streets: The guys performed their debut show Friday 2/19 at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles. Speaking of bootlegs, someone videotaped the entire thing, including a cover of “In The Aeroplane Over The Sea,” the first of a two-song encore. The motivation? Note Mercer’s post-song quip. That, and it’s a great song still worth getting emo about.

They also covered “Crimson & Clover.” You can dig into the rest of the set at Foundtrack’s YouTube Channel. And, remember this?
