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

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).

They've had duds, yes, but since Murray Street, they seem revitalized, so the fact that The Eternal's good shouldn't be a surprise. It's more surprising the way they go about it.Continue reading Premature Evaluation: Sonic Youth - The Eternal... - Source

But according to what she told fellow Scot Craig Ferguson Tuesday night, she was having a little trouble concentrating on the legendary Beatle.
