Los Campesinos! and Parenthetical Girls Concert at the Echoplex, Echo Park, Los Angeles, February 11, 2012

Los Campesinos! and Parenthetical Girls put on a great show at the Echoplex on Saturday night, February 11, 2012. Lead singer Gareth Campesinos! mentioned that one of their first gigs was at the Echo, a smaller venue located upstairs from the Echoplex. It must have been poignant that they had come so far since then, yet not so far at all. Zac Pennington from Parenthetical Girls said that those of us who take photos and videos of them should make sure they are flattering. Zac, since I know you might be looking at my footage, I hope that it meets with your approval. Gareth and Zac both came out into the audience multiple times, and there was even some crowd surfing. Zac even jumped up on the bar! So, it was an exciting show. This was the first concert for my new full HD camera, a PowerShot ELPH 300 HS. The bass was so loud, or the camera is so sensitive, there unfortunately is some audio distortion on the videos. I picked three songs from Los Campesinos! and one from Parenthetical Girls. I also have Romance is Boring and You! Me! Dancing! posted on my YouTube channel. Enjoy!
