Hi guys....the bf and I saw Camera Obscura here in SF. I waited 5 long years to see them.

They didn't disappoint. They were gorgeous and brilliant. Got a few moments of acknowledgment and smiles from Tracy, and even got to see her before the show (while we were waiting in line) as she stepped out to go to her vehicle. I gave her a warm smile and said hello, and she returned with a hello back and a smile right at me.

We ended up front row center. It was wonderful. We couldn't hit the Fillmore show since we were out of town, but next time they hit SF, we'll definitely be there again.

The setlist was mainly off of the last album + Let's Get Out of this Country, and they sang Tears for Affairs as a special treat for the SF crowd, although Tracy herself said she didn't care for the track, ha ha.

I found out about CO through a dear friend of mine named Don while I was living in NYC. I was going through a very tough time in my life and he told me to watch a video, and it was the video for Llloyd, I'm Ready to be Heartbroken. My eyes, ears, and heart absolutely connected with the video and the sound of the band. I ended up getting the album it came from, and it helped me through a very difficult place in my life in a way I hadn't expected. The combination of sad lyrics, with that gorgeous voice and melodies...I can't put my finger on exactly what it did, but it let me understand my sadness from a different point of view.

Ever since then, I've been hooked. Then My Maudelin Career came out, and I fell in love with them even more. Honey in the Sun even inspired me to make a video...as a tribute to my boyfriend.

The song captured exactly how he made me feel. How he has this incredible ability to help mend a lot of the hurt and the pain I've experienced in my life.

So, despite being unemployed and having absolutely no money, I found a way to nab tickets for their headline show here in SF. We got to the venue early and ended up front row center. RE: the setlist, I honestly couldn't tell you the exact setlist, but here is what the setlist *did* include to the best of my recollection.

Main setlist:
My Maudelin Career
Swans
Lloyd I'm Ready to be Heartboken
Let's Get Out of this Country
If Looks Could Kill
French Navy
The Sweetest Thing
James
The World is Full of Strangers

Encores:
Tears for Affairs
Razzle Dazzle Rose

My guess is the setlist was something similar to the following one here:

Hey ! I've seen your youtube vid before !! Very Happy At the time I remember thinking how creative it was and how happy it all looked. You seem in a good place now Very Happy

The setlists don't change that much Christian, but the real interest for me is when they bring up a wee gem from the past or an obscure track. I can't wait to hear "World is full.." live for example or "Keep it Clean" or/and especially "I love my Jean" Sad

OMG, when I heard World if Full of Strangers, I almost died.

But I think the one that gave me goosebumps was probably Razze Dazzle Rose. To hear it live...those horns...her voice...it was just absolute magic. The whole show was magic. It was humorous when they finished up Tears for Affairs (it was an encore, requested by the crowd) and they said they didn't really like the song, but they did it anyway for us. It's such a pretty song...wonder why they don't like it. Maybe they've done it too many times.

I had no idea you'd already seen the video. Wow. I am honored, thank you!!!! Smile

Well, still unemployed, but hangin' in there as best as I can.
