The Kooks

Live review: The Kooks @ the Ogden Theatre

It seems nearly impossible to get bored at a Kooks concert. The Brighton (as in Britain) band pours the Beatles through an Arctic Monkeys filter, then drinks the remains and burps up bits of the Doors, the Cure, Franz Ferdinand, the Fratellis, the Strokes and every so often, a little White Stripes.
