All right! Two shows on consecutive nights = the band's members will have time on the first night for fornicating

Those kids look like they're just hanging around the cafeteria before the first bell rings.

Anglo pendejos use an exclamation mark at the end of their Spanish name but not an inverted exclamation mark at its beginning. ¡Chíngalos!

Scrub my floors, pepe, or I'll lock you in the closet again!

Pepe, table 4 needs more chips and salsa...

I was stoked to see them in philly, but it ended up being a 21+ show. I know plenty of people have missed out on shows for the same reason, but being right on the cusp of turning 21 made me even more bitter.

Anyone see that show?

I was at the Philly show last night - they did a pretty fun set, including a Pavement cover, which is always nice. They seem to be very into the American indie bands, as evidenced from the Sleater-Kinney and Silver Jews shirts the band was wearing.

Pavement cover also made the appearance at Mercury Lounge on Friday. Are all of Los Campesinos! 21+?

Not groundbreaking, but way fun. And Welsh!

"Frontwards" is on their EP, and it's not like they have enough material to leave anything out of the show.
