Camera Obscura played the Brooklyn Flea (videos)

the Brooklyn Flea @ 1 Hanson Place – 6/6/2010 (Dean Keim)
Brooklyn Flea

“Camera Obscura may not be Brooklyn natives, but many of the borough’s residents braved the heated Vault inside the Brooklyn Flea to see the Scottish pop band play a free pop-up show on Sunday. The show was the first of many shows the weekly flea market plans to host this summer.

“There’s more people [here] than we anticipated, so that’s nice,” frontwoman Tracyanne Campbell told the crowd as the band got ready to play their set.

In addition to the 30-minute show, local ice cream shop Blue Marble gave away free scoops of “The Sweetest Cream” in honor of the band’s song ‘The Sweetest Thing.’ Camera Obscura got into the flea market spirit by setting up their own shop and selling limited edition t-shirts and tote bags designed especially for the day’s event along with typical band merch.” [Spinner]

Sunday’s show was the first of two that Camera Obscura will play in NYC while they’re here. The next is tonight (6/7) at Grand Ballroom with The Love Language. Videos from the Flea, below…
