-A.S. Chicago, IL As Gnarls Barkley took the stage Cee-Lo proclaimed, “Chicago- Make some fu*cking noise! Are you ready to rock and roll?!” I know I was from my front row spot in the photo pit. I was in a bit of a rush to get over the shoot Girl Talk as well, but I was enjoying myself regardless.Gnarls Barkley may not be the dance party that is Girl Talk, but they are the better concert in my opinion.

They played “Going On” and it was great to hear one of my favorite songs off The Odd Couple. Cee-Lo’s voice sounds even better live than it does on the albums. It has a beautiful raw quality that doesn’t always come through in the studio. Danger Mouse on a B3 organ is also a treat.

It was so crowded between the photo pit at Gnarls and the one at Girl Talk that it took me all of “Gone Daddy Gone,” “Run” and “Blind Mary” to get there. “Run” was the perfect soundtrack for my situation as I hurried across Grant Park. After getting shooed out of the Girl Talk pit it was time for me to head back to Gnarls.
Danger Mouse could produce the Wiggles and I’d probably listen to it.

I got there just in time to hear the song every casual fan was there to see. “You probably heard this one, but it’s still cool,” Cee-Lo said to introduce “Crazy.” He also told the crowd that he was using “the tambourine of the gods” during “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul.”

One of my favorite parts of their set was their cover of Radiohead’s “Reckoner.” Cee-Lo’s voice soured over the crowd, and made me glad that I had opted to return to see them rather than stay at Girl Talk.
