Cold War Kids Set List

Category: Set ListsEyeliah @ 1:00 pm

Cold War Kids was a magical show at the Commodore! We ended up in a wicked spot right near the front, and I swear I even made eye contact with these guys! What is is about lead singers, they are always so attractive? Has much to do with the talent and of course the connection we’ll feel to the lyrics they sing. Please say I am not the only one?


Mexican Dogs
Something is Not Right With Me
I’ve Seen Enough

New Song
Against Privacy
Every Valley is Not a Lake
Lord Have Mercy on Me
Hospital Beds


We Used to Vacation
Saint John

I went with two guy friends which was a new experience but one hundred percent good. The Commodore was particularly hot and combine that with dancing my butt off for 80 minutes, it was a little sweaty. Perhaps I should have wore a skirt, but for once I was in jeans. Since I do not have my camera yet, I wore this lime top, these Bongo jeans, the boots and a wrist of bracelets. Rather simple for me but it happens 🙂

The craziest thing? Everyone knew ALL the lyrics to a third of the songs. And they were singing at the top of their lungs so much so that we couldn’t even hear the band sing!! Especially for Hang Me Out to Dry, We used to Vacation and Saint John. I have experienced this before at many concerts, but usually only once a show for their most uber-popular song. I couldn’t believe how many huge Cold War Kids fans we have here in Vancouver! It made the night so special to be jumping and singing in such a big group of people so close together in harmony, no pushing or shoving.
The moment of the night was Robbers, first they turned out all the lights so it was near pitch black. Then the band had flashlights they were shining out into the audience lighting up individuals in the crowd. I am sure we all had a moment when the light stopped on us. It was very cool, I told the guys they were picking out the hot chicks for backstage, lol.

    I’ve never heard of them, but this sounds like a great concert! The rush of being united in a crowd by music is so amazing 🙂

    I know what you mean with the lead singers thing. I tend to be in the front as well so I can relate 🙂 I guess it’s just the power and energy and the thing about being that close to the band is that they basically feed off you as well, because they can see you jumping about and singing.

    Great boots by the way! 🙂
