Fierce foursome perform three nights of lyrical mayhem at Columbia City Theatre.
Cold War Kids evolved in Silverlake, CA back in 2004, utilizing instruments only secondary to their own stomping and chanting, beating metal pipes and plywood, and howling into tape recorders. While they started out shouting from the rooftops of neighborhood restaurants, eight years later, they’ve humbly toured across the U.S., U.K., Australia, Japan and Europe. Their lyrics strive to provide insight to the human experience and their fans will boast they’re never left hung out to dry.
When: Thursday, March 1st at 8 p.m., Friday March 2nd at 8 p.m., Saturday March 3rd at 8 p.m.
The Venue: The Columbia City Theatre, built in 1917, was all the hype during Seattle’s Jazz boom, hosting the likes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Fats Waller. It may have even been one of the first venues Jimi Hendrix let loose, before it served as a neighboring movie theatre in the 60s, (hence the name). Restored in the summer of 2010, this rustic South Seattle venue has been dubbed one of the finest sounding rooms in the City. Happy Hour at their Bourbon Bar & Kitchen runs late night.
Tickets: $20 a night or the whole shebang for $50 tickets here.
