Jack's Mannequin Out Shines Chart-Topping The Fray as Opener at Dodge Theatre
The Fray and Jack's Mannequin made the perfect touring partners when their show stopped into the Dodge Theatre Tuesday. Both bands produce piano-driven melodies and songs that can get haunt your head for days. Both tend to attract a late teen to twentysomething crowd of starry-eyed girls as well as couples to their shows. Both have come along way since they played smaller venues like the Marquee Theatre last year, and both performed covers during their set (we'll get into that later). But the comparisons stop there.
While the Grammy-nominated The Fray is unarguably the more famous of the two thanks to chart-topping radio-friendly songs like "Over My Head (Cable Car)," "How to Save a Life" (the "Grey's Anatomy" theme song) and "You Found Me," which the band naturally cranked out during this concert, Jack's Mannequin put on a far better live show.
