Wait, so we're is getting top billing now?

I'd love to see these bitches.

Thanks for telling about the tour, cockhead.

'Sup dudes?

All's good in the LC! hood. With less than a week to go on our current 'right hand side of the US tour' with Titus Andronicus, we are a little maudlin, because it's been the funnest time ever, but there is light, because we today have the pleasure of announcing West Coast/ Mexico/Canadian dates.

As follows:
March 6 - Mexico City, MX @ Lunario Nacional
March 7 - Guadalajara, MX @ Teatro Estudio Cavaret
March 29 - Philadelphia, PA @ Theatre of Living Arts
March 30 - Burlington, VT @ Higher Ground
March 31 - Montreal, PQ @ La Sala Rosa
April 1 - Toronto, ON @ Opera House
April 2 - Detroit, MI @ Magic Stick
April 3 - Milwaukee, WI @ Turner Hall
April 4 - Minneapolis, MN @ Fine Line Café
April 5 - Omaha, NE @ Waiting Room
April 7 - Denver, CO @ Bluebird Theatre
April 10 - Seattle, WA @ Neumo's
April 11 - Vancouver, BC @ Richard's on Richards
April 12 - Portland, OR @ Wonder Ballroom
April 13 - Sacramento, CA @ Harlow's
April 15 - San Francisco, CA @ Slims
April 16 - Santa Barbara, CA @ Velvet Jones
April 17 - Indio, CA @ Coachella Music Festival

Touring partners to be announced soon.

Thank you to everyone who has come to watch us and spoken to us and been generally lovely to us on the recent dates. You have been the nicest crowds we have ever had the pleasure of playing to, and we are very grateful.

I'm trying to think of some things to say to make this relevant those of you not from the places written above.

Erm, we'll probably play in the UK again some time. I'd imagine so.

THANKS!

Hang loose,

LC! X
I guess that I never heard about any more dates being announced. NSW, are you going to Milwaukee, next weekend?

Ahh, that must have been when I was complaining about them playing Coachella and nowhere else in the L.A. area.

My prayers have been answered! I bought three tix an hour ago. Now I just have to decide which two ladies will be coming with me!

On that new blog that I posted, you can ask the band questions. You should ask Aleks to go with you/marry you. If you can get Ellen in on that, I'll go green with envy/ask you for details, details, details. Just get them to have the techs play for them, that show. It'll be the greatest shit ever!

I'm going to try and pick her up in person, thank you.

There's nowhere cool in Orange County for them to go, so maybe I can convince them to come back up to Hipsterville with me.

Jesus, what a great show, tonight! Sadly, it was way too short and nowhere even remotely near as rowdy as that Chicago gig. News/observations/pointless puffing-out-of-the-chest:

1) Aleks (and Neil, pssh) stood DIRECTLY behind/next to me, during the Sky Larkin set! I nearly fainted, because all the blood rushed from my head to my...well, uh, you get the idea. My GOD, she is a beautiful woman.

2) Semi-related and cool news: the chick from Sky Larkin hit on me, after the show! Score! Too bad I think she's gross, I guess. Regardless, that was a first (not being hit on, but being hit on by a professional musician) and I felt more than flattered!

3) Tom says that the band has plans again to work with producer Dave Newfeld (BSS, SFA, etc.), but he also says that nothing is set in stone. He mentioned that they'd just spoken, earlier in the day, about where everybody's at, these days, and a little bit about the future. Good news, for me. I'm a huge Newf supporter; Tom seemed equally smitten with his work.

4) Ellen is fucking gorgeous. I mean, seriously. That hair...! Man, I love blonde, punk chicks. Especially the bass players.

5) Gareth, Tom and Neil came into the audience for the closer, "Death to Los Campesinos!" and sang/played the entire song from the center of the floor. Very cool stuff. I lifted Neil back onto the stage twice.

6) I have been sworn to secrecy, regarding details...but Tom told me about some summer plans which have me more than a little bit excited.

7) Gareth told me that I am "a voice of reason," amongst Los Campesinos! fans. We talked about Xiu Xiu. I had fun.

Interesting to note, though: as much as I enjoyed this set and as much as I so embarrassingly obviously love the band, I listened to SFA nearly all the way from Milwaukee to Chicago. That new record is that good, kids.

Fuckin' right, man! You would, too, if it happened to you!

I couldn't bring myself to speak to Aleks. I tried, but failed. Twice, in fact. Both during the Sky Larkin set (good set, but the album's nothing special...painfully, numbingly samey stuff) and after the show, when I had more than a chance. Ugh.

Seriously, who is this beautiful? And without seeming to notice it, too? Ballin'-ass smile, on that chick, and she was smiling for the entire show.

I'm embarrassing myself, but I don't care.

You failed is right. Standing right next to you?

Felled by a sudden loss of blood from the head. A damn-ass shame, but there's be further opportunities to terrify her, I'm sure. I know people in Minneapolis. I should've gone up, for tonight's show. I still could, mind, but it's actually cheaper to fly there, at the moment. Too late for them shits.

No. More of a lamentation, really.

I wonder if "Someone I know has a huge crush on you and I want to make him jealous" would be enough to get Aleks to pose for a picture with me.

He was referencing a poster who threatened the mods on this staff by saying he knows people.
