* with Cold War Kids
I can only speculate that the band was previously on tour through the twin cities. Most of their 40-minute set was taken from their forthcoming debut album Tender Madness, such as "Cotton Candy", "Get Me Through The Night", "Young Rut" and "Put Me To Work". However, some songs such as "Collector" and "A Good Woman is Hard to Find", were added in for good measure.
PAPA was extremely gracious to be on tour and playing to a large audience, and at the end of their set, Weiss jumped into the photo pit and high-five everyone in front of the stage.
As for Cold War Kids, the band is working overtime in Minneapolis, having previously appeared in April and May this year in support of Dear Miss Lonelyhearts. I can tell that the extra Minneapolis shows help made songs from their new album modern classics as the fans all sing along to "Loner Phase", "Tuxedos", and "Jailbirds".
Of course, CWK had a lot of hit songs to work with from their discography, so songs like "Louder Than Ever", "Mexican Dogs", "Relief", "We Used To Vacation", etc., were all well received by the audience. Of course, their biggest hits, "Rubidoux" and "Hang Me Up to Dry", had the biggest reaction.
Cold War Kids are currently on tour for Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, show up early to check out PAPA.
