THOUGHTS: Honestly speaking, I’m not very well versed in Cold War Kids discography. I was a big fan of their singles back in 2007, but for one reason I stopped following their music. Their set at the Sunset Strip Music Festival put them back on my radar. I still need to educate myself and get caught up on their catalog, but watching them perform “Hang Me Up To Dry” was all I needed to bring me back.
PHOTOS: The lighting was really tough do deal with. Because there were so many photographers, we were broken up into groups of two. I was stuck in group two, set to shoot songs 4 – 6. It looked like the lighting was going to be decent as I noticed bright, clear lights flashing throughout the opening of their set. By the time I got into the pit, the lighting design went predominantly purple. Oh well. I guess thems the breaks.
