There ain’t no rest for the wicked

The electric crowd screamed the words to “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” at Cage the Elephant’s concert in Elliott Hall last night. The shaking floors did nothing to phase the fans as they jumped up and down the entire night.

Purdue Convocations held their Spring concert last night in Elliott Hall with headliner Cage the Elephant and opening acts Twin Peaks and Diarrhea Planet.

Cage the Elephant is a Kentucky rock band who got their first success in London before becoming popular in the States.

The lead singer of the band Matt Shultz is an amazing performer. “He was lively and energetic and truly knew how to keep the crowd entertained,” said Purdue student Alexa Goodman who attended the concert. “I only knew about four songs from them but I enjoyed the entire concert.”

Cage the Elephant did not start performing until 9 p.m. which was two hours after the concert started. The openers Twin Peaks and Diarrhea Planet performed a mixture of indie and garage punk music to warm up the fans for two hours before Cage the Elephant finally came on stage.

They surfed the crowd, shook the hall and impressed all the Boilermakers who were lucky enough to make it to the concert! Purdue Convos you did it again. You can check out my previous blog post to learn more about what events Purdue Convocations has to offer.
