Cold War Kids Tonight

You have two chances to catch the Cold War Kids here in Austin tonight. First they'll be playing an in-store at Waterloo Records around 5p. Then, sometime before last-call for alcohol, you can catch the Cold War Kids at Emo's.

I feel like they are one of those bands that either inspires confusion or passionate obsession. If you google them you will get about 50/50 lovers and haters. They have a nice jangly indie rock sound with Decemberist-esque lyricism. Their new album is out now on Downtown Records and it's called Loyalty to Loyalty.
