Death Cab For Cutie/Ra Ra Riot/Cold War Kids @ RIMAC Arena (UCSD Campus), La Jolla 4/29/09

By admin / April 30, 2009 - 2:24 pm

After we premiered each track from Death Cab’s new Open Door EP, the band set out on a North American tour that found its way to UC San Diego’s RIMAC Arena last night. Photographer Andrew Youssef made the drive from L.A. to La Jolla (as did a lot of folks impatient for the Hollywood Bowl show in July with Tegan & Sara and the New Pornos), which featured standard cuts and EP fare along with opening sets from Ra Ra Riot and Cold War Kids (their first show back after two cancellations due to Nathan’s laryngitis). Pretty bloggy bill, RIMAC. Tour dates, setlist, and lots of pics this way:
