There’s something awe-inspiring about an out of tune echoing piano, which is heard on most of Cold War Kids’ tracks. Mixing together an indie rock sound with hints of blues and soul, this California band set themselves apart from the rest of beanie-hat-wearing indie rockers with their unique sound. Promoting their new EP, Behave Yourself, they play The Music Hall of Williamsburg on Jan. 28 and at Terminal 5 in NYC on Jan. 29. Ages 18 and up. coldwarkids.com.
