Cage the Elephant: Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked

Here is the basic bio information on this young band, which was recommended by my son, from Wikipedia:

Cage the Elephant is an American rock band from Bowling Green, Kentucky, that formed in mid-2006. Since their formation, the band has gained a large following in the US as well as the UK and Canada for their sound and their high-energy live performances. The band released their self-titled debut album on May 19, 2008 (June 23, 2008 in the UK). The album made them very popular in both Europe and America.[1] On January 11, 2011, the group released their second album, Thank You, Happy Birthday (March 21, 2011 in the UK). The second album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200,[2] and earned the band much positive reception.[3] Both albums were produced by Jay Joyce of Jive Records.[4]

Here is an interview at American Songwriter in which lead singer Matt Schultz and Bryan Graves discuss The Starry Night Music and Arts Festival, which the band started in Bowling Green. Graves founded the festival. The story behind the band’s odd name is told at Spin. Two other songs by the band are Shake Me Down and Aberdeen. Here is the Facebook page.
