Hidden Cameras

The Hidden Cameras have just announced a massive North American tour in support of their fourth full-length, Origin:Orphan....Fans will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for all of the newly announced shows except in Brooklyn and San Francisco, before they go on sale to the general public... As a bonus and in anticipation of the new album and tour, fans will immediately receive a free digital download of the newly released 5-track In The NA EP with any The Hidden Cameras pre-sale ticket purchase.
The tour dates currently on pre-sale include the band's November 4th show at (Le) Poisson Rouge (pre-sale tix). General sale starts Thursday, August 27th at noon (note: I think they were on sale and then not on sale or something like that).

Tickets for band's other area show, November 6th at Brooklyn's Union Hall, aren't on sale yet are on presale. Sometimes Camera member and fellow Canadian, Gentleman Reg will join them on all dates.

Quick flashback: In 2004 the Hidden Cameras were supposed to headline Bowery Ballroom, but their opener got too big so they switched the order before the show happened.

The EP mentioned above includes the song "In the NA," the first single off the band's new full-length. Check out the video for it, with tracklists and all tour dates, below...

The EP features an extended version of the first single from the forthcoming album, along with two b-sides, and two remixes of "In The NA", including the "Crystal Pepsi" remix by French electronic music producer Stuart Price (a.k.a Thin White Duke) and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters.

It's a great record. Unfortunate that Hidden Cameras get so little attention these days. They've quietly amassed one of my favorite discographies of this decade.

Hidden Camera played til past 2am on Friday night at Union Hall, and turned in one the best shows of the year. One of those truly transformative concert experiences -- where you leave the mundane and go to that astral plane. Completely different set (and vibe) from their Wed. show at Le Poisson Rouge, which was a great show, but a bit more "formal" and not as loose (could have been the early set time on a school night). Union Hall set was mind-blowing. Final encore ("Music Is My Boyfriend") had entire audience singing in unison....and actually sounding quite good! History will reveal Gibb as one of the best songwriters of the past decade.
