Tired: Camera Obscura
So I saw Camera Obscura last night. They seemed tired. They seemed bored. The mix wasn't good. The keyboard was wrong.
To top all of this off, 90% of a set list was from an album that hasn't come out yet. What the hell were they thinking. You don't come all the way to New York and play a bunch of songs no one knows to a packed house. If your album hasn't come out yet, and your not monstrously popular allready, you can only play 4 songs from your forthcoming album before your try the crowds patience.
Also there was crowd participation, a 2-3 clapping beat for an entire song. Needless to say it turned into unrythmatic clapping mayhem.
