Monday, May 16th I had the pleasure of seeing Hippo Campus LIVE! Knowing Hippo Campus and their story, listening to them from the beginning I was excited to say the least. I was amazing to see how far they have come. Even with these somewhat high expectations I was impressed.
For starters, Hippo Campus is extremely talented. I knew from just listening to their albums I knew they were something special. However hearing things live can either be better or worse in regards to the quality of the music. With Hippo Campus the way they sounded on their album is how they sounded live, but louder. This happens to be one of my favorite things when I hear bands live.
This was defiantly an entertaining show, and I would love to see them again. During their set, they played a few new songs that I’ve never heard. Seems like a new album might be in the near future. I’ve linked their other two albums just in case you haven’t listened to them yet. Enjoy! Hippo Campus is guaranteed to make you smile.
My favorite song and possibly Hippo Campus’s anthem is ‘The Halocline’.
