Fresh off their free show Friday with Titus Andronicus at UW-Madison's Rathskeller—read all about the sweaty, college kid mayhem over at Decider Madison—relentlessly chirpy indie rock band Los Campesinos! has booked an April 3 gig at Turner Hall. These are heady times for the Welsh upstarts: Last year saw the release of the band’s debut, Hold On Now, Youngster… and follow-up We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed, two albums that traffic in relentless neon pop (with chords so bright and repetitive they border on terrifying) and the kind of fierce lyrics that transform sing-along chants into social critique. Tickets are $13 and go on sale at noon Friday at the Pabst and Riverside box offices. Or you could just get free tickets from Decider—just sign up for our newsletter by shooting an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also announced today is an April 17 concert with Chris Cornell at Pabst Theater, which lately has been haunted by the ghosts of grunge rock's past. Most people probably aren't aware that Cornell has a solo record, Scream, due in March. While this weird-ass Gnarls Barkley-esque collaboration with Timbaland sounds, well, terrible on paper, there's always hope that it will sound dynamite at the Pabst. Tickets are $37 and also go on sale at noon Friday.
