CONTEST – Camera Obscura @ The Phoenix – November 26, 2009
Frank YangThings that you can take to the bank: one, that every couple years Scotland’s Camera Obscura will return with a new album of gorgeous, increasingly orchestral pop and two, that they’ll tour North America at least twice in support of said record, if not more.
To point one, we have their latest record My Maudlin Career, released back in April, and to point two, we have a two-week trek that started earlier this week and which rolls into The Phoenix in Toronto next Thursday, November 26, and which follows a Summer tour that saw them play Lee’s Palace back in June. And actually, this was their third North American jaunt in 2009, with them having played some dates at SxSW in March, though that itinerary didn’t bring them up this way.
Tickets for the Toronto show are $20.50 in advance, but courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Camera Obscura” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Get that to me before midnight, November 23.
