Cold War Kids, 10/4/2016, Emo’s Austin, Photos – Write-up


Like a well-oiled tornado, the Cold War Kids tore through their hour and a half set for their ACL Late night show.  The veterans of indie rock have their performance dialed-in and yet did not seem forced or orchestrated.  The set list had the crowd riding waves of nostalgia, blues and elation.  Several times phones were up and crowd’s voices nearly overpowered Nathan’s.  Cold War Kids are a great band with great fans that get it.
