Hippo Campus and Remo Drive in Des Moines!
Indie pop band Hippo Campus headlined Wooly’s in Des Moines, IA this past Friday. Up-and-coming emo band Remo Drive opened for them. I was lucky enough to hitch a ride down to Des Moines from the Twin Cities with the Remo dudes to check out this set. As we arrived, I was surprised to see fans sitting down lined up outside the entrance a few hours before anyone even played. For some reason, I thought that was just hometown thing.
Remo Drive played their largest out of town show to date. If this lineup was in Minneapolis, this would have been the show of the year. What a stacked set. Remo obviously played their Greatest Hits.
Hippo Campus closed out the evening with yet another fantastic show. Playing only a couple hours away in Iowa City a night before, it was crazy how many people we heard made the trip to see them again.
