Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids' March 24th Radio City Music Hall show has been moved to Terminal 5. "All tickets will be honored." Baths and No Age are still the openers.

If you happen to be in Austin, come see Baths play the BrooklynVegan Day Party at Swan Dive/Barbarella at noon today (3/19)

Couldn't fill Radio City huh?

So, they're moving a seated show to a cramped standing venue? Some people are bound to be pissed about the price differences between the two as well~

what is up with bowery presents booking all these bands at huge venues like msg and radio city. got forbid the band spends 3 nights in ny and plays smaller venues. its such an 'eff you' to your fans to make half the crowd be a massive distance from the stage (in msg's case most of the crowd). especially for indie bands whose sound isnt exactly suited for a massive venue. so many of these radio city shows (tvotr, explosions, interpol, etc) i would have attended had they been at smaller venues and many of my friends echoed the same sentiments.

I'm so happy that when a show can't move tickets bowery presents can just move it to a smaller venue and fuck over all the fans who woke up early and handed over their money months in advance to lock in great seats.

The least they could do is offer a refund yet I see that's not an option. Thanks assholes.

10:39 to be fair not every band can revolve their entire tour around nyc. Maybe they don't all want to play 3 nights in nyc, and therefor a bigger venue would allow the most fans to see them/let them make the most money. To bad this got moved though (I was not planning to go), but No Age at radio city sounded funny.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 11:51 AM

Putting up the entire crew in NYC hotels is VERY expensive.

Princeton and Tennis could fill up a weeks worth of shows at Radio City

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 11:57 AM

Radio City is one of the best-sounding venues in the city, and T5 is one of the worst. I'd be pissed if I were a Cold War Kids fan.

Oh, and let me counter before some jackass says "Radio City sounds like shit" or something to that effect. You know nothing. Carry on.

Posted by GregBX | March 19, 2011 12:15 PM

Wow, shitty move by Bowery Presents!

Because they didn't know how to properly promote a show for Radio City, now the fans who DID support this show are getting ripped off in terms of price, comfort and sound quality. Bad business.

I know they would NEVER do this, but Bowery Presents should offer everyone with a Radio City ticket $15 at the door to T5 or something - I'm sure they paid upwards of $40-50 for the Radio City tickets, which is a RIDICULOUS amount to pay for the shit sound/experience of T5.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 12:23 PM

@11:11 they did offer a refund and they're giving everyone $10 back St the door. While I hate T5, im happier to see CWK there than radio city.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 12:24 PM

I just checked the price for this new show and it is only $5 cheaper than the Radio City tickets were. Way to spit in the fans' faces, BP.

The way that some of your people write about Terminal 5, I think that you got your ass kicked by a big guy right before he took your date home and made sweet love to her long time. Please don't project your measly little pathetic life onto the bands that play there, m'kay?

There is a pressing issue here: People are still willing to pay money to see CWK in 2011.

Cold War Kids only like Freedom Fries.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 1:38 PM

During the Cold War, much of the hummus-producing regions of the world were in fact controlled by the Soviet Union. Therefore, these kids who were apparently part of the Cold War grew up learning that hummus was a food for communists.

This is also an important reason why the Hummus Queens never toured the United States between WWII and 1965, when they were invited to open for the Beatles at Shea Stadium (in williamsburg).

Radio City is the worst-sounding venue I've ever been too. Every band I've seen there has sounded like they're coming out of laptop speakers. It's just way too big.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 4:13 PM

Whichever label guy assured Cold War Kids that Radio City was a good idea should get promoted so this industry can crumble faster

you got a problem with hummus?

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 7:14 PM

I do have a problem with hummus. It's all carbs. The bread you dip it in is all carbs. They try to advertise it as being "healthy" but when you have varieties that include "pizza" hummus it's hardly healthy. It's the equivalent of the fat guy that eats a hot dog with a diet coke and thinks he's eating healthy.

Posted by Badger | March 19, 2011 7:37 PM

Well, I would hardly call 24g fat / 35g total carbs (15g fiber) / 19g protein as being "all carbs". Also did you know that the nutritional value of traditional hummus is derived mainly from its chief ingredient, chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans. Other contributing ingredients are olive oil and garlic. Hummus also contains small amounts of lemon juice and cumin. Variations of hummus can include spinach, red peppers, kalamata olives or tahini, a sesame-seed paste.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2011 8:49 PM

Way off. More like 49.5 grams of carbs. That's a lot considering that a cup of regular Coca Cola, which is mostly sugar, is 27 grams.

And that's just the hummus alone. It doesn't include the large amounts of bread, crackers, chips etc that people dip it in, which is all carbs and empty calories. Sure you can dip it in vegetables but most people don't go that route.

Radio City has the best acoustics in the city and anyone who disagrees is just on here to hate on anything that is too far away from their little counter-culture comfort zones without any reason other than to feel superior. I don't like going there, but denying it sounds amazing is completely stupid and arbitrary.

Also, Cold War Kids' new album is hot garbage.

Lifelong New Yorker here. Many seats in RCMH have + excellent acoustics, and the space is visually fabulous. However, the best acoustics in the city are hands-down Carnegie Hall. No competition.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2011 1:20 AM

Yes, Carnegie is best but its rarely used as a rock venue so I didn't consider it. Also, yes, they've always been on the fringe of being an awful band, but this last effort pushed them into miserably shitty.

9:49. Either way, still the same amount of carbs as a can of coke. A can of sugary coke.

Of course. What people don't realize is that it's ridiculously EASY to get your maximum amount of carbs for the day. That's why most Americans are so fat because they eat too much bread, pasta, and sides loaded with them.

No Age and Baths are weird openers for Cold War Kids.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2011 1:38 AM

I had 2 great seats for Radio City and personally think Cold War Kids' guitar player is awesome. It's okay if everyone reading does not care for the band.

When I received the venue change e-mail (along with the promise of $10 per ticket at the door of T5), I canceled my tickets immediately. Everyone who has tickets should do the same because it's the only way to rightfully stick it to the man.

$20 is no exchange for being treated like cattle on the west side highway.

Yeah... I agree. A lousy ten bucks doesn't make a fair trade off to have this moved to terminal 5. Maybe if they threw in a small 12oz container of hummus I would consider it...
