COLD WAR KIDS in the NEWS:
A week from today the COLD WAR KIDS will be appearing in Boston. The venue was originally slated for The Paradise but has recently been changed for Great Scott's in Allston. To ensure you see the band you should buy your tickets ahead of time if at all possible because the more intimate Great Scotts will likely sell out quickly.
PITCHFORK STRIKES AGAIN
CHARACTER ASSASINATION OF "ROBBERS AND COWARDS"
"It would help if the record lived up even a little bit to the mostly positive notices for Cold War Kids' incessant live shows...." Marc Hogan, Pitchfork.
It looks like my on Again / off Again / on Again interview with the Cold War Kids is going to happen after all. It will come this upcoming week and it will be of the face-to-face variety. That's cause for celebration. I think this will provide a better Q&A than what the fifteen minute over-the-phone session on the band's media day (drive-thru philosophy) would have provided. The interview will appear in two parts... Here and over and my other haunt - Berkeley Place.
Hear the CWKs play live: The band will be recording a show on WOXY's lounge acts program live on Monday at 1:30 pm. If you can't listen live, no worries - WOXY generally makes tracks downloadable or at the very least provided streamable versions of their shows!
