Cold War Kids coming to Fremont Theatre
–The Cold War Kids will be live in downtown SLO on Sunday, Nov. 17. Tickets are on sale now at Eventbrite.com or locally at Boo Boo Records.
As they grew from quirky mid-2000s blog darlings into an indie rock band with a polished yet passionate sound, Cold War Kids’ music spanned influences as diverse as Tom Waits, Billie Holiday, Nick Cave, and U2. The group’s shifting lineup reflected their evolving sound over the years, from the stomping blues-punk of 2006’s debut Robbers & Cowards to the slick alt-rock of 2011’s Mine Is Yours. Cold War Kids grew more anthemic, and more popular, as time went on: 2017’s L.A. Divine, which celebrated the mythos of their adopted hometown as well as the power of sweeping rock, made the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart.
