Tokyo Police Club & Cold War Kids | 2007 Tour Dates & MP3s

Cold War Kids are giving away this free EP…

Cold War Kids“We got asked to do a Benefit at the District Lounge in Orange on September 24th with Dustin Kensrue and Chuck Regan. It was through the Breast Cancer Walk that takes place in Costa Mesa the last several years. We decided to play some covers that we like with Nathan singing and playing guitar, Jonnie on the drums, and Maust recording. It’s a pretty informal loose performance but we decided to let you hear it anyway.”

1. Indoor Fireworks (MP3) (elvis costello cover)
2. Fast As You Can (MP3) (fiona apple cover)
3. Die Die Die (MP3) (dr dog cover)

Cold War Kids @ The Annex, NYC | Nov 3, 2006
Cold War Kids

As many of you know, Cold War Kids (CWK) are playing a zillion NYC shows (including one at Pianos back on January 10th, and another one for SPIN at Hiro Ballroom on December 18th). They’re also going on tour in March with Tokyo Police Club (TPC). CWK headline the U.S. shows . TPC headline in Canada.

I liked CWK when I saw them at Pianos in May, but for some reason I haven’t really liked their live shows since. Last time I saw them was opening for The Hold Steady at The Annex during CMJ (pic above), and they just didn’t seem like the same energetic band. Well, they personally have energy (see the sweat), but the songs seemed to be missing something.

Energy or not, Pitchfork or not, the band seems to be blowing up – all their recent NYC shows this month sold out pretty quickly, and now they’re headlining two April nights at Bowery Ballroom with the always great Tokyo Police Club (who are doing pretty well themselves). One of the Bowery shows is ALSO ALREADY SOLD OUT….3 months in advance. These shows will be the second time Cold War Kids play two nights at Bowery – last time was opening for Tapes ‘n Tapes.
