The Los Angeles boys of Cold War Kids return to Oklahoma for a night of raw melodies and heart-pumping drumbeats. The band first appeared in 2006 with the breakthrough LP Robbers & Cowards, fronted with the popular songs “Hair Down” and “Hang Me Out to Dry.” After two more albums, the world was forced to wait two years for another studio release from the indie rock quartet. Armed with a new guitarist and deeper stories to tell, the April 2013 release of Dear Miss Lonelyhearts gave fans ten tracks of fresh music evolved from their signature and well-known sound. Cold War Kids make a stop on their North American tour at Cain’s Ballroom, 423 N. Main St., in Tulsa on Wednesday, Aug. 21. The show is scheduled for 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets are $19-$35 each, available at the Cain’s Ballroom box office or online at www.cainsballroom.com.
