Camera Obscura

One day after they played the Brooklyn Flea, Camera Obscura headlined Grand Ballroom (with the addition of a string section) as part of their current tour with The Love Language. More pictures and the headliner's setlist from last night's show (6/7), below...

agreed.. the strings were a great addition !

watch out for those Love Language kids as well. They could take off big time..some seriously catchy tunes and that singer's got some pipes !

BV: need more coverage of this band, even if it means alienating readers by straying off the beaten path into experimental sounds

Seen them a few times over the years. Camara Obscura put on a good live show. "Honey In The Sun" is my favorite track.

This was one of the best shows of the year so far. Great venue. Both bands were in top form. Everyone really seemed to be enjoying themselves. Crowd was very active and vocal (and jovial), especially for a Camera Obscura show.

The songs sounded terrific with strings, especially since they all didn't have much time to rehearse together. Even those obnoxious CO fans that go to every show and stand in the front were pretty well behaved.

even if it was sarcasm, it was a) stupid and b) BV gives them plenty of coverage.

there can never be enough coverage of this band.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
