Shanies: Rookie of the Year

As I wake up this morning (once again around 5... luckily got back to bed for a bit) my mind wandered to the newcomers. I'll let you do your own digging and figure out why Cage the Elephant took this award feet down. (why does it have to be hands?)

Back when I was on crutches, I had bought a ticket to a Cage show. While any normal person would have likely just eaten the 8 pound loss and stayed at home whining, I don't fuck around when it comes to music. I stood in the back the entire time, writhing in pain every time someone bumped my leg, but the show was more than worth it. These boys have energy, originality, catchy hooks and are accessible. In short, keep an eye open in 2009.
