Cold War Kids tonight at GAMH


People who buy greater Los Angeles’ Cold War Kids also buy the Shins, Yo La Tengo, and TV on the Radio. They also bought all the tickets to this week’s show at the Great American Music Hall, goddammit. These Spin Artists of the Year demanded all of $15 for their four-star guitar-and-hooks formula, and the market has responded. The Cold War Kids’ latest, Robbers and Cowards , continues to move units by pleasing folks who like Sonic Youth, Bloc Party, and at least the theory behind the Strokes. Try to get in at the door by saying you’re from Fullerton. Tonight at 8 p.m., $15 (sold out).
