Hippo Campus released the Alan Sparhawk-produced Bashful Creatures EP last fall, and finished second in City Pages' Picked to Click poll to their buddy Allan Kingdom. They're currently on the road with the Mowgli's. Their upcoming Minneapolis shows are scheduled for Friday, April 3 at the Varsity (opening for the Mowgli's), and Friday, June 26 at Northrop (opening for My Morning Jacket).

On Tuesday evening, they joined comedian Kevin Hart and WWE wrestler Roman Reigns (and Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter) on the program, which aired on TBS at 10 p.m. CST.

Here's Hippo Campus performing "Suicide Saturday." Afterwards, Conan says "I like these guys!"
