617jgnch2l Cage the Elephant details live DVD/CD: Live From The Vic In Chicago

Kentucky rockers Cage the Elephant have gained quite a bit of notoriety for their raucous, balls-out live shows. This year alone, they played a killer supporting set for The Black Keys, had Dave Grohl sit in on drums when they opened for our band of the year Foo Fighters, and took part in KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas, not to mention numerous festival spots. Now you can bring the band’s wild energy home with a soon-to-be-released live album and DVD.

Directed by music video vet Wayne Isham, Live From The Vic In Chicago was captured during the band’s sold out two-night stint at The Vic Theater during their spring tour. Featuring 75 minutes of raw footage, the DVD/CD combo drops January 3rd, and will also be available on iTunes. Best Buy will get a two week exclusive on the Blu-Ray version, which features live versions of “Ain’t No Rest For the Wicked”, “Aberdeen”, and “Shake Me Down” from their Lollapalooza set earlier this year. Other outlets will stock the Blu-Ray beginning January 17th. Pre-orders are currently ongoing, and those who opt to buy early will be entered in a contest to win a clay figure from the band’s “Aberdeen” video.

MTV, through its various channels, aired a 30-minute edit of Live From The Vic In Chicago throughout November, and you can watch “In One Ear” from that broadcast below. Further down, you’ll see the complete setlist for the DVD/CD, plus Cage the Elephant’s upcoming, festival-heavy tour schedule.
