    Review from popmatters.com

    Next up was Cleveland’s mighty Cobra Verde, touring in support of their rockin’ CD Easy Listening. They’re playing some shows with Evan Dando on the coasts, as well as playing solo shows throughout the Midwest. CV singer John Petkovic was dragging a cold/cough around him for this show, and sounded pretty hoarse during his onstage comments. But a couple of beers down the hatch and a roaring band behind him brought him back to life. Their catchy, anthemic pop songs like "Riot Industry", "Modified Frankenstein" and "’Til Sunrise" sounded great, aided by the kickass rhythm section of bassist Ed Sotelo and drummer Mark Klein. Frank Vazzano’s rhythm guitar and J Mascis’ ballistic leads rounded out the band’s sonic attack. Catch Cobra Verde on this tour, they’re hot.
