Cold War Kids
Older fan favorites like "Hang Me Up To Dry" and "Hospital Beds" were a hit with the audience whether you knew the lyrics or not. Something about Willett's voice made it impossible not to want to get a little rowdy with them. All throughout the front of the crowd, people lit up and got relaxed during the heavier piano tracks like "We Used to Vacation." The band's stage presence was on point through each song and they never slowed down. After almost a decade as a band and four albums later, Cold War Kids still exude the same passion as they did when they released Robbers & Cowards. And that speaks volumes. [Red River Noise]Cold War Kids and ex-Girls band PAPA brought their tour through Austin last week (8/22) for a show at Stubb's. Pictures from the show are in this post.
