So I'm a little late on this, but I went to go check out Cold War Kids at Detroit after the Weekly's Christmas party (on a stationary riverboat?) this past Saturday night.
It was the third time I've seen CWK at Detroit—and probably the last (I mean, really, at this rate, you kids can sell out the House of Blues... or bigger)—and, as always, it was... a good show.
All that good stuff that's already been said about their live performance.
But the tightly packed-in crowd kind of lost its energy five or six songs into the set—and guess what? We didn't really deserve an encore.
(Apparently the band thought so, too.)
Anyway, the success story that is the Cold War Kids continues tonight at 11:30 p.m., when they'll be performing on CBS' the Late Show with David Letterman.
