Cold War Kids perform free concert at Heavenly Village
Close out the week-long Winter Ignite festivities in perhaps the biggest way possible: renown alternative group Cold War Kids comes to Heavenly Village for a free (yes, you read that right) concert on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m.
The group formed in August 2004 and quickly rose to prominence with songs like “Hang Me up to Dry” and “Louder Than Ever.”
“For the first practices, having instruments was secondary to stomping and chanting; clanging on heat pipes, thumping on plywood walls. Hollering into tape recorders. Slipping and swaying into alleyways and juke joints of yesteryear. Tapping into the American dustbowl and British maritime. On the restaurant’s roof the sound and feeling was cultivated and burned, built and hallowed out, painted and stripped to the primer,” states the band’s Facebook biography.
“Cold War Kids strive to make honest songs about human experience in orchards and hotel rooms, laundromats and churches, sea ports and school halls. We love the songs of Dylan, Nina Simone, and the Velvet Underground and make our own, which we like to think, are pretty original.”
