WHO: Los Campesinos!
WHERE: Wrongbar, Toronto
WHEN: October 8 2010
Los Campesinos! are all about having a good time. Despite looking a bit congested on Wrongbar’s stage, the British troop sucked the energy out of the rowdy Toronto audience and turned it into a bag of jubilant indie pop. Knocking out tracks like “You! Me! Dancing!” and “There Are Listed Buildings”, it seemed as if Gareth and Kim Campesinos! would be overshadowed by the roar of onlookers but it wasn’t the case as the vocalists, along with their colleagues, nailed each shift in melody keeping toe-tappers happy.

Quick correction: That wasn’t Aleks, it was Kim. Aleks left late last year and Gareth’s sister Kim replaced her.
