Camera Obscura

Kathleen and I saw Camera Obscura at the Variety Playhouse Friday night. It was supposed to have been like back in June, but there was a family emergency or such in the band and the had to postpone. But they came back, and we got to see a good show.

We saw The Low Anthem and Blind Pilot at The Earl last Sunday. Blind Pilot was really good. They have a lot of atypical instrumentation (Upright bass, electric vibraphone, etc). It comes together to make some quite pretty music.

Low Anthem was ok, I may have liked it more if I hadn’t been so tired (most of their stuff was slow).

I don’t know how we do it, but no matter how late we show up, we always end up right at the stage at the Earl.

Kathleen and I went to Athens to see Wilco last Monday night. I honestly hadn’t thought about the coincidence of the show being on 4/20… Oh well… Had a good time. They played for a little over 2 hours.

And they mostly played old stuff, which really made me happy. Not that I don’t like Sky Blue Sky, but this was the first time I’d seen them live.

Last Wednesday we went to see Loney, Dear and Andrew Bird at the Variety Playhouse. Actually, I didn’t even know Loney, Dear was playing until the day of the show because I bought the tickets right when they went on sale and it wasn’t posted yet, so I was very excited… Oh yeah, and Andrew Bird was freaking Awesome…
