Los Campesinos and Shearwater

It's Friday in Austin, which means it's show time kids. That's right there are many shows going on tonight but there are two that I want you to know about. First were gonna keep it Canadian and let you know that Los Campesinos are in town. In case you're not familiar they are on Arts & Crafts records so automatically they make pretty pop music. You can catch them at the Parish with Titus Andronicus.

Meanwhile just a few blocks away at the Mohawk you can catch local heroes Shearwater. I'm not sure if they will be playing inside or outside. Chances are it's gonna be the outside stage, so if you find yourself downtown around midnight tonight mosey on over to 10th street and listen to the beautiful renaissance-fair sounds of Shearwater.

I didn't mean that renaissance fair remark to be rude, it's just something about Shearwater reminds of minstrels. Don't ask.

So, if you're up for it you can still get tickets for both shows. Shearwater tix are only $8. Tickets for Los Campesinos are $14.
