Pop and alternative rock sensation Neon Trees made a stop at The National Tuesday night in support of their new album, “Pop Psychology.” Just before fans got a taste of their latest release, band members Tyler Glenn, Chris Allen, Branden Campbell and Elaine Bradley got a taste of a Richmond favorite. Carena’s Jamaican Grille catered dinner for the band before their show, pausing to take a couple photos with Carena’s staff before taking the stage.
Carena’s was a hit with the band, known for chart-toppers such as ‘Everybody Talks,’ ‘Animal’ and ‘Sleeping With A Friend.’ The group went full on ‘heart eyes’ for Carena’s kale and white bean stew, as you can see below. We asked that ‘hard-hitting’ question on everyone’s mind–so, what did they eat?
Mini beef and chicken empanadas
Cool Runnings salad (mixed greens with corn and avocado
Curry vegetable w/ linguine or rice and peas
Salmon w/ mango relish
(All served with rice and peas and cabbage and kale sauté)
Rum walnut pound cake
The Richmond stop was part of a nationwide tour that began in April and will run through mid-July.
