Eels at Ogden Theatre - 10/05/10

EELS With Jesca Hoop 10.05.10 | Ogden Theatre

When we interviewed Eels frontman Mark Oliver Everett (aka E) last week, he said he was having the most fun he's ever had on tour and that it might surprise people how much fun the shows are. Sure enough. Last night's show at the Ogden Theatre was a surprise, especially to those who came expecting something like the Eels last show at the Fox Theatre, which featured Everett and his guitar player, the Chet, telling stories about the songs. The Ogden show was indeed just as Everett said it would be: One big, fat celebration.
