Cold War Kids
Sunday, June 30 @ U.S. Cellular Connection Stage, 10 p.m.
Yet the tastemakers that help break bands like Cold War Kids tend to move on to the “next big thing” rather quickly, a reality that often dooms former “it” bands to the dustbin of history. Thankfully, Cold War Kids have been able to exist outside of the constant glare of the virtual spotlight. The band has worked hard to grow its audience by touring with such acts as Death Cab for Cutie while continuing to put out quality records. The band’s latest offering, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, was released this spring. (Michael Carriere)
