Indie Rockers Cold War Kids to Play The Rustic This May



Another addition to the onslaught (emphasis on the aught) of bands coming to Texas that gained popularity in … well, the aughts, comes Long Beach indie rockers the Cold War Kids.

The band is stopping at The Rustic on Tuesday, May 22. Kyle Noonan, creator of The Rustic, said the performance at the still-new venue is one of the band's only non-festival gigs.

“Having Cold War Kids perform at The Rustic is huge,” said Noonan. “The Rustic is one of the only stops on their tour that isn’t a festival, meaning that there won’t be very many opportunities for fans to experience the band’s incredible performance in a uniquely intimate setting like The Rustic.”

With Dr. Dog slated for a performance at The Rustic earlier in May, could we expect more performances from other high-caliber artists? Only time will tell.

General admission tickets are currently on sale for just $30 at VIP tickets, which include a separate VIP entrance, access to the private VIP section with an optimal view of the stage, and a private cash bar are also available for $65.
