Los Campesinos! @ Slims

Too tired to write an intelligent post.. but the concert was great. Sky Larkin did a great job opening the show despite reporting that they had tremendous bad luck with their equipment and had to share LC!'s gear. They are definitely fun to watch so look out for them in the future.

Los Campesinos!

Treasure Island Music Festival 2009 Dates Announced

Noise Pop Industries and Another Planet Entertainment announced yesterday that the will take place on October 17 & 18, 2009. This is a full month later than previous years. l speculate that the move was done because:
a: Vegoose, which took place over Halloween in Las Vegas, is no longer a competitive threat.
b: it creates a more manageable time gap between Another Planet's other big Festival, , which happens late in August this year
c: and it may actually be warmer in mid-October.

has lined up a second leg of . After the gypsy-punk band's May and June dates, the group will head overseas for a European run followed by a 10-city summer tour bookended by previously announced festival appearances.

They go abroad in June and part of July, and then finish up the month with an East Coast tour that culminates with All Points West before they head to Japan for Summer Sonic Festival. Hopefully they extend their tour into August and September so we may have a chance to see them included in the , as .
