Cage the Elephant at Coachella, Saturday April 16, 2011

By Rami Evens-Esh

Cage The Elephant couldn't have put on a better performance. Pure rockstar Matty Schultz had no "rest for the wicked" at Coachella because "money doesn't grow on trees," and the most astonishing aspect of the performance was his playing the stage in a red dress faintly reminiscent of Kurt Cobain's cross-dressing days. Performing in the afternoon in the desert, he rocked his way into the crowd, where he appeared like a G-d in a red dress, and gazed out at all the happy festival attendees as they audibly gasped at his boldness. The crowd sung along to "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked," "2024," "In One Ear," and "Shake Me Down." To top it all off, the Monday after the festival, they appeared on the local rock station speaking about their entire record.
