Monday To-Do: Cage the Elephant

8 p.m., Revolution. $15.

With Beck affectations, Kings of Leon twang and a twist of Happy Mondays swagger, Cage the Elephant occupies a precarious spot in the modern rock radio landscape. It's straightforward rock from when rock was straightforward and stumbled, occasionally, into left field (hey, '90s!). Hardly intimidated by slide guitar, tempo changes or dropping the occasional, tasteful F-bomb here and there, the Bowling Green, Ky., five-piece are same-y-same enough to grab ears and just different enough to keep their songs planted in them. In fact, during the writing of this paragraph, their single “Ain't No Rest for the Wicked” stuck itself something fierce in my head. Choral, experimental Portland act Morning Teleportation and driving guitar rockers from Nashville, Autovaughn, open the all-ages concert
