As much as I hate The Warfield, seeing Southern rock gods, Kings of Leon, play there Saturday night was well worth it. It was like seeing a southern version of U2 play in teeny tiny venue. The crowd was so into it, singing along with every song they played, pumping their fists in the air. Having sold out two nights at The Warfield, it seems like people are finally catching on to this good ‘ol American rock-n-roll band. They seem poised for superstardom, despite Pitchfork’s pitiful 3.8 rating of their new album, Only by the Night. They’re a bunch of snobs anyway.
I’m a sucker for their rock ballads, so my favorite song of the night was ‘Arizona‘.
