A friend recently told me he’s so excited for the Los Campesinos! show this Friday that he’s been waking up in the middle of the night. I think a good number of people across campus share similar feelings about this concert. This is arguably one of the biggest WUD Music concerts since we saw Hollywood Holt and Million $ Mano in November so I’d recommend getting a spot up front early because this is going to pack the Rathskeller, and fast. Plus, who can argue with an opener as awesome as Titus Andronicus? I’m every bit as stoked to see them play.
Both Los Campesinos! and Titus Andronicus are touring in support of incredible records (all nestled comfortably in the 8.3,4,5 spots on Pitchfork’s harsh album rating scale). This is guaranteed to be a high energy show. Both bands have awesome stage presence…when Titus Andronicus played at Club 770 with No Age last fall, Patrick Stickles (frontman) body surfed all the way to the end of the crowd and back, among doing other assorted zany things.
The show starts at 9:00 and is at Der Rathskeller in Memorial Union. As always, the show is free (!!!)
