Nov 24, 2009 Live Camera Obscura

Camera Obscura’s Tracyanne Campbell crooned, “I don’t wanna be sad again” in “My Maudlin Career,” the set opener of the band’s Nov. 22 show at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg (and title track of its latest record), but her claim wasn’t very convincing.

Nov 11, 2009 Live Dirty Projectors

By 7:15, the line for the Dirty Projectors rounded the corner of Sunset and Logan in Echo Park. Trick-or-treaters passed close to costumed Projectors fans until the sidewalk was a moving Halloween confusion.

Nov 10, 2009 Live The Dodos

Fresh from their performance on one of the biggest stages at Austin City Limits, The Dodos stepped on to a small stage nestled into a corner of the Rock and Roll Hotel.

Nov 03, 2009 Live Cymbals Eat Guitars

Two extraneous details threatened to ruin the mood on this particular night at World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Oct 29, 2009 Live Florence and the Machine

It’s no surprise that Florence and the Machine’s first proper New York show sold out quickly, as this performance was way overdue but very much worth the wait.

Oct 29, 2009 Live CMJ 2009 Day Five

“It’s early for everyone, I think,” said Jesse Lortz, guitarist and vocalist for Seattle’s the Dutchess and the Duke at 2-something on Saturday afternoon. After almost a straight week of shows and parties, it was about time for CMJ-goers’ collective hangover to kick in if it hadn’t already.

Oct 28, 2009 Live Daniel Johnston

Sometimes, it can be easy to take a concert at face value. A guy comes in with an instrument, plays a few songs, tells a few stories, and then everyone goes out for drinks and small talk. This process of thoughtless artistic consumption becomes significantly more difficult when that artist is Daniel Johnston.
