The Cold War has ended (or so they say), but the Cold War Kids is still the same. Or is it? Last year, the band saw the departure of guitarist and vocalist Jonnie Russell, who wanted to quit touring and make his own change. The California band that made its big debut with 2006’s Robbers & Cowards and gained acclaim with the follow-up Loyalty to Loyalty in 2008, would reevaluate its focus along with its line-up. With a new guitarist, Dann Gallucci, serving double duty as also co-producer on the band’s newest work, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, Cold War Kids has inevitably changed – and it seems that’s OK with everyone. Decide for yourself when the band returns to Cain’s Ballroom, 423 S. Main St., Tulsa. Band Papa opens the show at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 21. Tickets are $19-35, available at www.cainsballroom.com.
