Last Night: Broken Bells Don't Break a Sweat

[Updated] Near the end of Broken Bells’ show at the Civic Theatre Wednesday night, singer James Mercer went for a dramatic moment, but instead of moving closer to the crowd, he moved toward the back of the stage. There, a light on the floor trained on him cast a 10 to 15 foot tall shadow on the backdrop behind him. Like everything else in the show, it worked on - it looked cool - but it also contributed to the general air of remoteness of the show.
