Those indie kids from over the pond, Hippo Campus, are embarking on their ‘Bambi’ UK tour, stopping off at Birmingham’s O2 Institute with support from Lauran Hibbard.

If you’re not familiar with Hippo Campus, you will be soon. Named one of NPR’s favourite new acts of 2017, the indie-pop group have since moved from strength-to-strength, with the release of their second album Bambi last year acting as a springboard for their current tour. This feels like a watershed moment for the band, and one that surely shouldn’t be missed.
The UK leg of the Bambi tour is a small part of a 53 show tour across the US, UK and Europe respectively that began at the start of September in their home-state Minnesota and concludes at the start of March in Copenhagen. Their Birmingham show may be a mere stop at the O2 Institute on a long journey but the local fans will surely make it a very warm welcome for the American 5-piece.

In love with all things ‘indie’ and underground – from psychedelic to alternative to rock. My favourite artists include Black Honey, The Last Shadow Puppets, Tame Impala, The Vaccines and Childish Gambino.
