Cold War Kids Played The Fillmore - Pictures, Review

Last week Cold War Kids stopped in at The Fillmore and managed to completely deliver the goods. We here at HAD hadn't caught the band since last year's show at Outside Lands, and it was good to see them in action again.

While the band dug into a bunch of material from their latest record, the older stuff (including "Hospital Beds" and "Hang Me Out To Dry") was what really won over the crowd. Not exactly surprising, considering the band's California roots (and the lesser critical praise for the second album, to boot) - we're sure there were some long term fans in the audience.

Either way, the band delivered an unquestionably solid live show - they were full of energy, definitely poised to deliver for the audience. Suffice it to say, it was a night of heartily enjoyable rock and roll. Besides enjoying the show, we managed to snag a few shots for your enjoyment (Including the setlist here). After you've checked them out, head to Music Induced Euphoria, who took in the show as well.
