Photo Essay: Cold War Kids Disarm Crowd at Corona

Posted by Jer / March 21, 2011

Cold War Kids Disarm Crowd at Corona Long Beach indie rockers Cold War Kids brought their unique brand of yelp rock (ok, that's not a genre, I just made it up, but his voice is pretty cool and that's my best attempt at pinning it down) to Montreal's Corona Theatre on Saturday night. Our special photo correspondent Shannon Heather - who's been getting some photo love from Rolling Stone - took time out of her busy schedule to take some pics of the show. If you were wondering what the show looked like, wonder no longer.

I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I
never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth
enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as
you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
