Los Campesinos!

Happy Los Campesinos! Day!

I am sure I'm not the only one in Seattle counting down to see Los Campesinos at Neumo's tonight (it's all-ages). How can we not be over the moon about folks that name check our favorite mix tape bands and encompass the BuyOlympia aesthetic better than you and I?

In case you haven't memorized their YouTube library (guilty!), the band fills the stage with guitars, keyboards and a cowbell; Live, their songs take it up on the moxie scale.  Like watching Matt and Kim, the group's members are truly best friends and their absolute giddiness to share their songs together is infectious. It's hard to wipe the smile off your face post-Campesinos.

If they weren't so cute and nice and talented, it'd be hard not to hate them.  I adore them to no end, as evidenced here.
