Nelly is already confirmed to bring his pimp juice to Tampa Margarita Fest, and now indie-rock band Cold War Kids have said that they'll be there to hang you up to dry on May 25.

The Kids’ last Tampa show was actually at Curtis Hixon Park when the band played as part of a free concert happening in conjunction with the BCS college football championship in 2017. The group will be down on the Tampa Riverwalk for Margarita Fest, which is moving to Julian B. Lane in 2019.

Margarita Fest is a 21 & up event. GA tickets are $17-$35, and VIP entry (bathrooms, lounge seating plus unlimited beer, wine, water and more than 60 kinds of margaritas) start at $110.

More information is available via, and organizers told us that they're working on a CDB margarita, too.
