Woodchuck Cage The Elephant

August 22nd… it’s on. For the second year in a row, we’re turning the backyard of our Cidery into an epic music bash. For Ciderstock 2015, we’ve got a bumpin’ lineup with local acts Kat Wright & the Indomitable Soul Band and Madaila, the upbeat sounds of New Politics, and the band of the evening… CAGE THE ELEPHANT! After checking out some great interviews and articles on our headliner, we’ve discovered some fun facts about the boys. As you get pumped up for the show, take a look at 10 things you might not know about the American rock band.

  1. The band is from Bowling Green, Kentucky.bowling_green_ky
  2. Matt Shulz (the lead singer) and Brad Shulz (the guitarist) are, you guessed it… brothers.Brad Shultz and Matt Shultz of Cage The Elephant
  3. In high school, Matt, Brad and Jared were involved in a band called Perfect Confusion. They were pretty great… 
  4. In middle school, Matt was in a band called Left Nostril. (Right, in Ralph’s case)ralph-wiggum-picking-nose

  6. The 1st time they played Lollapalooza in 2007, their opener (pre-meat dress) made her debut at the festival… Lady Gaga. Now that’s pretty kick a$$.Lady Gaga performs at Lollapalooza 8/3/07. Photo by Jason Squires/frcphotos.com
