Cold War Kids 3-23-2007 @ Vinyl, Atlanta, GA

The Cold War Kids absolutely owned Vinyl last night. The sold-out show was nowhere near as intimate as some of their prior visits to Atlanta, but the band seems to have refined its performance and command of the stage. If you can catch 'em on this tour, I'd suggest you do so.

Individual file downloads are down (more filehost issues...) but up again and the full show is available below.

Great concert! Here are some photos I took of CWK a few weeks ago if you are interested.

The other night was my first trip to Vinyl and I have to admit that I didn't much care for the place. Too bad, I really wanted to like it because it was so small.

I left before the end of the CWK's set because I got tired of all the talking in the crowd and the amount of cigarette smoke (christ do I sound old or what?)

I wanted to like Tokyo Police Club more as well, but I think the lack of a drummer really screwed their mojo.

Vinyl's alright. Too narrow and not all that comfy, but it beats a lot of places. It was better back before it was a Park Bench when it had video games, couches, another pool table, etc., but those days are gone.

Funny re: the talking/smoking... I was up front and quite pleased with the crowd up there. Must have been worse further back.

I wasn't into TPC's set, really. I agree that not having a drummer and not using their own gear sucked a lot of life out of their set. What I saw of Delta Spirit was good though. They should have just had them play second.

Sad that I missed this. I tend to assume nothing will be sold out...

I'm not sure what capacity is at Vinyl, but I was surprised it sold out too. They probably played for under 100 people at The EARL last July. I guess word has spread over the last 8 months or so. Was certainly a different crowd than was at the prior two visits at the DU and EARL.

I think I overheard that they are returning to ATL in Oct for those of you who missed it. Friday night was the best local show I've seen so far in 2007. I enjoyed it even more than the Tweedy solo show.

Yep, Nate confirmed that. They didn't know where or who they'd be playing with, but they should be back in October. Woohoo.

Enjoyed that show so much! They really rocked hard. (Good to see you too!) Can't wait for them to come back this Fall.

Paulie - I totally didn't see you there! I also drank a little too much that evening though... :/
