As I have already said how great Cold War Kids are in edition 2.0, I should mention their support band,Wye Oak, a one man-one woman-band, and no, they are nothing like White Stripes. (You can decide for yourself if that’s a good or a bad thing).
She is lost in their music (what kind of music is it??), playing the guitar, he plays both bass and drums and sometimes engages in a spot of background chanting. (At the same time, mind) Amazingness. For those interested, there was mention of a Spring tour.
Cold War Kids themselves managed to exceed all my expectations and performed a good mix of old and new songs, their new album is definitely worth a listen! Aside from the music and dancing, the show was, at least for me, one example of good interaction between band, security and audience. The tiresome girl that crowdsurfed a dozen times met the extremely cheerful security. The girl who cut her lip after being hit by crowdsurfing girl shook hands with the band, who enjoyed themselves throughout the show.
Roughly two hours and 14 songs later we found the opportunity to talk to two members of the band, we showed them splendid folding techniques and were awarded with a photo.
In the end, Cold War Kids declared their love for the tba family, kind of, so after listening to their music, seeing them life live and talking to them, we can say: we love you too. Come back soon.
