Cold War Kids (Again)

Because I am a slave to the groove, I went drinking at Tuman's after work, happily chilled with some friends I haven't chilled with for a while, then took in the Cold War Kids show at the Abbey (they were opening for Mates of State and are in town to play Lollapalooza on Saturday). You know you read the internet too much when you leave after the opening act because they're all you wanted to see anyway. Please listen to their EPs. Up in Rags is prolly the best overall, but With Our Wallets Full is rangy and excellent and hints at great things to come on their first full-length. I shook bassist Matt Maust's hand at the merch table and told him they were amazing. They were.

mates of state are pretty decent, although perhaps anticlimactic.
