The Cars hit the 9:30 Club Monday night, and we were there to sadly try and relive our youth check out this insanely influential band as they tore through songs both old and new. For the most part, the band did not disappoint. They hit all the right hits at all the right times, and amazingly, after all these years guitarist Elliot Easton can still shred with the best of them. The new songs fit nicely into the set but were often a reminder that not everything The Cars did was great. In between the hits on every album there were always songs that were, um, less than hits. But when The Cars are on in songs like "Magic", "You're All I've Got Tonight" and "Best Friends Girl" there aren't many bands in existence that can touch them.
If this is a victory lap for The Cars, it's a well deserved one and they will have gone out on a high note. If instead it's just the start of a new chapter, then I say bring it on. Who knows who they'll influence next.
