CONTEST – Los Campesinos! @ The Phoenix – April 20, 2010
Jon BergmanKids, they grow up so fast. It was just a couple years ago that those Welsh scamps in Los Campesinos! were causing a ruckus via a free show at The Horseshoe with only their Sticking Fingers Into Sockets EP to warn folks what hijinks they were up to, but since then they’ve already released three albums, including this year’s Romance Is Boring, and have moved on to playing much bigger rooms. Case in point, their upcoming April 20 show in Toronto which will see them doing their thing in front of 1000 people at the Phoenix.
Tickets for the show are $16.50 in advance, but courtesy of LiveNation, I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Los Campesinos!” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Winners will be chosen after midnight, April 15 and because I’ve realized that this is important to some, this is an all-ages show. Come one, come all.
Spin declares the band to be breaking out. As in popularity, not as in their skin. Though that’s probably still happening too.
