Eight Gigs: Cage The Elephant

Sat., April 15, 8:30 p.m., Crest Theatre, $47

Although point of origin should not be an issue, Cage The Elephant formed in Kenucky and then made the move across the pond to London years ago. And while the band’s sound has changed drastically, let’s just say that’s a good thing. They defy categorization and cross musical genres including punk, classic rock, blues and even funk without sounding dated nor derivative. Their current theater tour is dubbed Live & Unpeeled: The Acoustic Tour and will feature songs from their storied catalog and, most importantly, their latest album, Tell Me I’m Pretty. 1013 K Street, www.cagetheelephant.com.
