Dr. Martens' #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour in association with DIY arrives in Birmingham

Los Campesinos! and Johnny Foreigner will play The Flapper this evening.

Tonight (Saturday 22nd November), Los Campesinos! will perform at The Flapper for the Birmingham stop on Dr Martens’ #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour in association with DIY, joined by Johnny Foreigner and Bella Figura.

“With the show coming shortly after festival season, it’ll be a really nice move from big outdoor audiences to a sweaty, indoor club vibe,” Gareth Campesinos! says of the date, which follows their sets at Truck and Festival No. 6, amongst others.

“They are different sort of thrills,” he continues, “playing to massive crowds and to intimate, whites-of-your-eyes style audiences, and if I had to pick, I’d go for the latter. When you’re practically chest to chest with your audience, you can form a real connection that’s so much harder to replicate with a barrier between you.”

The remaining dates on the #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour are as follows:

NOVEMBER
22 Los Campesinos! + Johnny Foreigner: The Flapper, Birmingham
28 Don Broco + Lonely the Brave: The Black Heart, London

DECEMBER
01 Tonight Alive + tbc: Warehouse 34, Newcastle

WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR, LOS CAMPESINOS!?

“LC! stand for emotive, visceral, drunken rock shows, created and shared in safe spaces with all misogyny and prejudices kept well away. No hierarchy and no assholes, just a load of pals.”

— Gareth Campesinos!
