Camera Obscura @ Warsaw

I saw Glasgow, Scotland, UK's Camera Obscura @ Poland's National Home (Warsaw) located in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn, NYC, USA before heading into Manhattan to catch the super late Clap Your Hands Say Yeah show at Mercury Lounge last night. (January 24, 2007)

Camera Obscura are a great "indie pop and/or twee" band that sound great live, but I think Warsaw was too big and noisy for most of them. As many have said before - the sound isn't that great in Warsaw unless you're standing up close. I bet the more intimate Bowery show back in July was nicer. Still a good show - GREAT at times, but I did have a hard time paying attention when the band wasn't playing their louder 'hits'.

I got there too late to see opener, and their Merge labelmates, Essex Green.
