Cold War Kids, Figurines, + Tapes 'n Tapes: Live in Dallas
Let me be the first to start the backlash to the backlash: Last night's show (Cold War Kids/Figurines/Tapes 'n Tapes) at Gypsy was pretty damn great, all around. If I have one complaint, it's that the Figurines probably should've opened, as their set sandwiched between CWK and Tapes sort of broke up the evening's flow. The energy from all three bands was electric, with no one showing any ill effects from their early-afternoon gridiron battle in 100+ degree heat, and the appreciative capacity crowd at Gypsy ate it up. The highlight for me was the Kids joining Tapes onstage for a rousing rendition of "Omaha". Go here to read a more in-depth review of last night's show.
