Tuesday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! turned into a dynamic mini concert at the hands of The Shins. James Mercer and company took the audience back in time with a lively performance of "Half a Million." The stage was overflowing with retro flower props as Mercer jumped around to the repetitive keyboard line.
A dramatic shift in energy came with the band's second song of the night. Gentle strings echoed on a more dimly lit stage filled with smoke. Mercer, acoustic guitar in hand, relied on the deepest parts of his soul to deliver a moving performance of "The Fear."
