“Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked”
…..and money don’t grow on trees”.. amen. That’s the main theme of the hottest new single and video from Cage The Elephant, “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked”. They are on tour this month in the US coming to Portland next week and Coachella the following. I haven’t spent much time listening to this band but liked this video and song. I will definitely look into their Portland gig which is just around the corner now.

CTE was just performing at SXSW 09. Here’s the front man Matt Schultz doing doing a solo, “Shiver Me Timbers” out at the SXSW Festival.
