As Huffington Post writer Radley Balko wrote in describing the first time he saw The Cold Stares at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville-

“This will go on for an hour. Between songs, people will whisper. They’re asking one another if anyone knows who the hell this is. And it’s here that you and everyone in the room will have the same realization just about everyone else has the first time they see they hear the Cold Stares live: These guys are better than the band you came to see.”
