For most of the crowd, tequila and beer took care of the chill that lingered in the air. And the power coming off the stage during War’s set was enough to fill all of Los Angeles.

With classics like “Spill the Wine,” “Low Rider” and “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” the vibe was nothing less than perfect. The band of men in their 50s and 60s played better than most groups in their prime. Good musicians get better with time.

Changing up rhythms, goofing off with the crowd and having fun onstage is what made this show great.
