I don't think you understand how crappy I thought the last one was.

Coupla east coast gigs plus one in Chicago in the coming weeks. Hope they're doing some west coast shows in April. Would love to see them not in a crowd where there's only about five fans.

They're not scheduled to play Philly, which is fine because if they were there'd be a tornado outbreak or something.

It's sad that their financial situation is such that they can't come to the other side of the country.

I guess their peak of what minimal popularity they had is past.

It's incredible how difficult it is for a good band like that to survive while making music. Tough times.

I'm bummed that I'll miss their concert in New York.

It's a real shame. Gareth has a part-time job working for their record label, I think. This is part of the reason I get so annoyed when lesser music becomes popular: in a couple of years there might not be a Los Campesinos! because they can't afford to go on.

Doesn't it make you feel so good about downloading music

Lol that's fair. I did download Romance is Boring illegally, but halfway through In Medias Res deleted it and I've bought everything they've done since. I've got two copies of We Are Beautiful.

I've given every bit of money I could to this band in the way of buying every record and tickets for two shows, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Hopefully they're able to get a proper US tour going. Shit, if they went the Kickstarter route I wouldn't even think twice about pitching in.

Same. Wonder if Gareth's ever considered it.

They provide amazing value for money too. Seriously, No Blues on pink vinyl, a CD, a poster and a Heat Rash with lyrics, lyric explanations and production notes for like $40 Australian.

Is it really that they can't afford it, though? They did just tour the states not that long ago, I feel like. Thought I just saw them last year.

I think they toured here in the summer of 2012. I always thought that touring was good for artists to make money, but I guess the costs for a larger band like them are too high?

That's why they had to wait to be booked on a festival to come to Australia. They didn't even do their own sideshows, they opened for the Dandy Warhols and Silversun Pickups, both of whom Los Camp! are miles better than imo.

Speedy Ortiz will open one of their shows here, which is pretty cool.
