What do you get when you combine the frontman for one of the UK's most acclaimed indie bands with the producer who reinvented the entire concept of a remix album? You get Broken Bells, in which James Mercer (The Shins) and Danger Mouse (The Grey Album, Gnarls Barkley) combine elements of pop, funk, rock, soul and electronic music and remix it all into something intoxicating and fresh (a la their latest single "Holding On For Life"). We know — that's a lot of mixing, but so worth it.
Wed Mar 5 8p. House of Blues, 15 Lansdowne St., Fenway (888-693-2583). $29-39 here.
