Hi dudes and dudettes. Sorry I haven't been around, didn't forget about you, just was extremely busy with work and moving and helping other people move. It was a crazy year! But anyway, this huge news caused me to finally load up the old bookmark:

I'm literally shaking with giddy excitement as I type this. Camera Obscura is not only playing in Iowa this April, they're playing just 30 miles from my house. In a small bar. HOLY FRACK. Finally all those love tweets I send them have convinced a performance!

Not all of the new dates are on the official site, but the one I'm going to is listed on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=265540826576&index=1

LIFE IS GOOD.

Just ordered my tickets for the Iowa City show. Got two tickets even though I have no one to bring at this point. Here's hoping I do by the time April 3 rolls around.

You think it'd be particularly presumptuous to bring along all of my EP's and LP's and expect the band to sign them? :) That's about a dozen different items...
At the very least, I have to bring along my Australia/Japan promo CD to get signed. Just to see them roll their eyes in disdain. :D

Kinda wonder if next year will be a touring year.....and recording later in the year.

I am really needing my CO fix at the mo, if they do a Uk tour, I'm seriously considering taking a kitbag around the country.

The Iowa gig sounds great, small, intimate affair, full on sound, lovely Wink

You know I'm still crossing my fingers for a NY show! I'm guessing they'll do at least 1 NYC gig this year... just judging from their twitter comments, and past touring history. For "Lloyd" they came to NYC on 4 separate occasions over the course of about a year and a half. So far for MMC, they've only been to NYC on 3 separate occasions over the course of about a year.

I've definitely been contemplating flying to one or two of these Spring US gigs (mostly looking at the Texas shows)... but I think I need to save my money.... because Belle & Sebastian are going to be touring this year!!! I have no idea to what extent... but if it is at all possible for me to see them this year.. I'm going. As much as I love, love, love CO... it's been 4 years since I've seen B&S and they are taking precedent in my concert budget this year.

i just read a twitter response from you i assume.. i'd go with ya if there wasnt 1400 kms (uh..900 miles) between me and there! i did look at making a nice mid-week trip to Chicago in April but the little lady is heading to the Caribbean with some friends for a much-needed retreat from kids (and i suspect husbands!) so it got back-benched... scratch
still still hoping for somethin later in the year thats a bit closer and maybe in a city i've not yet been to (like Chicago or NY)... ahh well..

Hahaha, yeah I got a pity tweet from the band. The only real-life friend I have who is a fan of the band is currently in Manchester (UK), so no dice from her. I'll find somebody, no worries. Even if I go alone, not a huge deal.

Just noticed more U.S. dates posted for June:

http://www.myspace.com/cameraobscuraband

Jun 2 2010 8:00P Duke Gardens Durham, North Carolina
Jun 3 2010 8:00P The Orange Peel Asheville, North Carolina
Jun 4 2010 8:00P Fountain Square - Free Show Cincinnati, Ohio
Jun 5 2010 8:00P The National Richmond, Virginia
Jun 7 2010 8:00P Grand Ballroom New York


I'm excited to see them again (Asheville) but wonder if all the touring is going to
drive them insane. By June it will be at least 16 months in terms of promoting/touring for
MMC.

Five days til I see C/O live for the first time, and hopefully get to meet the gang. I'm literally tingling with giddiness!

On second thought, the tingling could be the three Americanos I've had today. Or a heart attack. Or my arm fell asleep. Some combination of those.

I'm here! (sorry, been a bit busy lately. and distracted with the current B&S news!)

That's awesome. You're going to go to the NYC gig? Well you know I'll be there with bells on! (not literally... don't hold me to that.)

I was definitely going to go to the Richmond show too. It's on a Saturday and not too bad of a drive for me. So I'll try and chat them up after the Richmond gig and see if they'll play an extra special gig for NYC! We'll need to get them to play "Forests and Sands" for our Canadian visitor.

The venue choice for NYC seems interesting. It's the Grand Ballroom at Manhattan Center. I've never been there before... but it's in the same building (actually directly above) as the Hammerstein Ballroom, which I gather is about twice as big as the Grand Ballroom. Hammerstein is the site of my first B&S gig.

Judging from pictures I've seen of the Grand Ballroom it looks perfect for CO. Really classy looking (with carpet, to boot!) and holds about 1500 people. There's even a U-Shaped balcony. Of course, I'll be front and center. The only thing that sucks is the location. It's basically right next to Penn Station and Madison Square Garden. Convenient if you're taking a commuter train to get there, but not if you want to have a beer or food before or after the gig. It's kind of a wasteland of cheesy, overpriced bars. But I'm sure I can find something acceptable.

Yeah!!! So friggen excited. I was really worried I wouldn't get to see Tracyanne and the gang this year. I had abandoned tentative plans to see them in Texas this month because I don't have enough money. This is amazing news.

yeaah - ticket presales for NY show today...
I've never been to NY (well not counting when i was 9 but what do ya remember from then?) so my wife and i decided to make a nice trip of it and see what we can see for as cheap as we can.. i know theres tons to see so its been fun so far looking stuff up... any suggestions Derek?? thanks for the tip about the bars and restos - where should we look then.. i think we're going for 2 nights so 3 days worth of good food! the last 2 times we went to see CO actually we ended up seeing them on the street (no...really we arent stalking! Wink dunno if they believed us) so i'd bet they wouldnt eat where ya speak of if they know the area at all... anyhow - cant wait to hit the "purchase" button despite my absolute adoration of ticketbasterd....

hey Tony. It should be a great time of year to come to NY. Just before it gets really hot! Of course I'd have lots of suggestions for you. But my suggestion would be not to try to cram in as much as you can into 2-3 days. There's just waaaay too much to explore. You need to pick a couple of areas you'd like to focus on.

Obviously, as a "local", I'd stay steer as far away from Times Square as possible. But, I guess if you've never seen it, go check it out one night. But definitely go at night, if you want to see it. I honestly don't know what tourists do there all friggen day, as it's mostly just crappy chain restaurants and over-priced amusement-shops. Even the Toys 'r Us has a Ferris Wheel!

Is there anything in particular you are interested in? As far as the really touristy shit goes, Ellis Island is amazing. You take a ferry there from Battery Park... get views of Liberty Island as well (you can go to Liberty Island too, for extra $$$). Or if you'd like a little boat tour and don't want to spend any money... the Staten Island Ferry is really great, and it's free! You can just take it to Staten Island, turn around and come back. It's probably a little over an hour round trip and it passes right by the Statue of Liberty.

And I'd definitely recommend saving a little money for at least one "nice" meal. There's no greater place for food than New York... so you really want to go to a nice dinner. I really have no idea what kind of food you like, so I couldn't really tell you exactly what. I will say that if you like meat, you should at least get a pastrami sandwich somewhere. And by somewhere I mean, Katz's deli on Houston Street.

Anywho... awesome that you are coming to my fair city. I'd be happy to give a few suggestions. If there's any sort of cuisine that you're into, etc. Basically, I'm pretty up on places to eat, drink, see music and see movies. Too bad the Yankees are out of town that weekend! (They'll actually be in Toronto.) I always recommend seeing a Yankee game.

Well I think I'll be waiting until this weekend to get my tickets. I'm hoping I can buy mine at the box office and avoid the ticketbastard fees. Although I'm not sure if I can with this venue, even though Bowery Presents shows that are GA are usually available at the Mercury Lounge Box Office. I dunno. We'll see.
