No, you are not dreaming. Ra Ra Riot and Cold War Kids opened for Death Cab For Cutie at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, PA. Yes, the show was fantastic. Ra Ra Riot started off the night with songs including “Oh La” and “St. Peters Day Festival” from their 2oo8 debut album, The Rhumb Line. Their set was followed by Cold War Kids, who played an intriguing lineup of tunes from their two albums, Robbers & Cowards(2006)and Loyalty to Loyalty(2008). Death Cab For Cutie covered material from their entire catalog, opening with “I Will Following You Into The Dark” and closing with “Transalanticism“.  Both Ra Ra Riot and Cold War Kids will be opening for Death Cab For Cutie until the end of April, with the tour coming to an end in La Jolla, CA. There’s some bad news though: more than half the shows are sold out. If you have the chance, get a ticket. Slip the door person some cash if that’s what it’ll take to get in.
