CONTEST – Camera Obscura @ The Phoenix – August 26, 2007
Scottish lads and lasses Camera Obscura return to town next week for a show Sunday night at The Phoenix. Though it’s ostensibly to support last year’s Let’s Get Out Of This Country, they’ve already been through twice already and everyone and their mother already loves the record so their work on that front is done. I assume they’re just coming over to do some shopping, have some roti. Maybe catch We Will Rock You.
But whatever the reasons, no complaints (as long as it’s not procrastination in recording a follow-up record). They put on a lovely show, even in the larger rooms as January’s Opera House engagement proved, and with The Last Town Chorus opening it’s sure to be a great one. And, courtesy of Against The Grain and Merge Records, I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away to Sunday night’s show (that’s August 26) and it’s all-ages so everyone can enter. To do so, fire me off an email to contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Camera Obscura” in the subject and your full name in the body. And if you know, tell me what the best month to visit Scotland is – I’m thinking about getting out of this country. Contest closes at midnight, August 23.
