Broken Bells, the collaboration between Shins front-man James Mercer and Danger Mouse, took the First Avenue stage on December 6th to a sold out crowd.

They played through most of their debut, self-titled album, added a Neil Young cover to their set list, threw in a new song, and also played a song off of Danger Mouse's "Dark Night of the Soul" album. And The Current was there to record it.
