Broken Bells

Five months after opening their tour with a theatrical First Ave performance, Broken Bells is back to play a theater. The side project of Shins frontman James Mercer and mega-producer Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton became more of a real band with their second album, “After the Ghost,” a fun if only half-baked mish-mash of Beatles psychedelica and Bee Gees disco-pop. Their show in March spotlessly spotlighted the best of their two records while effectively using nifty visual effects to make up for the musicians’ lack of stage luster. California trio Cayucas opens. Chris Riemenschneider
