Camera Obscura

November 22nd, 2009 | 14:20

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.

Blitzen Trapper

We saw Blitzen Trapper at The Earl last Thursday night. Pretty good.

Wye Oak opened and they were pretty good. I wish I had known more of their stuff before we went.

Blind Pilot

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.

The Walkmen

We went to see The Walkmen again at the Variety Playhouse with Brent a while ago (Sept 25).  The opening band wasn’t too good. But The Walkmen were great as always

Throw Me The Statue & The Brunettes

September 11th, 2009 | 12:48

Kathleen and I walked down to the Drunken Unicorn Monday night to see Throw Me The Statue and The Brunettes. Also, a band called The Nurses opened.

It was a good show, but started way too late. I just can’t go to shows on work nights that go past 1 AM anymore. I feel so old.

Sorry about the crappy cell phone picture, it’s all I had with me.
