Cold War Kids and M Ward at Auditorium Shores

auditorium@ZackTeibloom I finally felt like I was at a festival after taking a rickshaw over to the gorgeous venue they call Auditorium Shores. One big field with all the usual festival perks: funnel cakes, stands selling pipes and sunglasses and long skirts. I finally got sunglasses. I hope they make it to JazzFest.

The Cold War Kids were strong, with Nathan Willett equally as impressive on keyboard and guitar as the sunset Thursday night. They got their biggest reaction from the held notes on “Hang. Hang. Hang  me out to dryyyy” on their single. They have good songs and play them well, but there’s nothing particularly note worthy about their live show. 7.6/10.

M. Ward was worth paying attention to. His gravely, raspy voice is complimented well whether he’s on the keys, doing some quick finger-picking on his guitar or backed by a full band. Worth checking out. 8.4/10.

The venue was a $10 rickshaw away from downtown, so it’s not worth the trek for one show, but for a little two band set to start the evening, it made perfect sense. Definitely an Austin venue worth going back to.
