SXSW Preview: Cold War Kids
According to the band, they are called Cold War Kids because "We're all Cold War kids. My father is, and I am. Unless you were born after '91 of course, in which I'm sure some of our listeners are going to feel left out."
The band was just written up in Spin's profile of the burgeoning Silverlake, Los Angeles scene, and they just finished a residency at LA's uber-hip club The Echo. For all of those who have ever wondered what it would be like if Thom Yorke took the reins of the Velvet Underground, than this is your band. They are a playing a ton at SXSW, so there is absolutely no reason to miss these guys!
