Los Campesinos!
with Titus Andronicus
Wed, Feb 11, 2009 9 PM
One of the breakout buzz bands from last year’s South by Southwest Festival, Los Campesinos! is a seven-piece Welsh indie pop band whose tunes have a catchy upbeat vibe that plays off their witty lyrics with a downbeat edge.

Their youthful spirit and lo-fi charm (evident on their debut CD, Hold on Now, Youngster, and the recent We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed) immediately found favor with fans of such smart-pop bands as Belle and Sebastian. The group's name roughly translates as "the peasants" (and the term is commonly associated with the people's army of the Cuban revolution), but there's nothing commonplace about the snappy joy they spread with their ever-ready glockenspiel and exuberant call-and-response vocals.

Titus Andronicus, a raucous five-piece ensemble from New Jersey, crank it up to kick start the show.

Note: This show is standing only.
