Camera Obscura: Live at the Cedar Cultural Center

My review of the Camera Obscura show at the Cedar a couple weekends ago is up on In Review Online. In a weekend where I went to three shows (Santigold, Holy Fuck and Camera Obscura), this one was the overall winner. I met up with fellow blogger and friend Joe who makes me feel a little more normal about my schizophrenic musical taste. (I'm pretty sure we were the only two people in the room who had been at Mastodon, Wolves in the Throne Room and Camera Obscura!) He also did a summery of the show here.

It was a good evening. All I wanted to say about the show I said here. In the photo on the left, Tracyanne is holding the awesome avocado maraca I mention in the review.

You caught the Santigold show? How was it? I came rather late to the Santogold/Santigold bandwagon (love the album) so I didn't know she had come through town.

Thanks for the mention!

I think the only other thing to mention about our seemingly schizophrenic musical tastes is that Koerner, Ray and Glover, and Huun-Huur-Tu also came up in conversation that night. :-P

...not to mention Altar of Plagues and Sunn O)))!

Santigold was kind of disappointing, but what you might expect from a person doing the same songs for over a year. Although I think she has been touring for a while, this was her first stop in Mpls. It was a dance party for sure, but it lacked some spark...
