Free Camera Obscura!

Camera Obscura are in the US! They will be in New York City for the next two days spreading free love . . . or free music to be more exact!

For those of us not lucky enough to partake of the Free Live Camera Obscura, they will drop in on WNYC's Soundcheck with John Schaefer! Listen here! at 2pm EST Today.

Tonight, Camera Obscura will regale the Williamsburg hipsters at our favorite Brooklyn record store, Sound Fix. Show starts at 8pm! Be sure to check out our new August releases while you are there!

And the big free show is Friday (tomorrow!) on Pier 17 at South Street Seaport as part of the Seaport Music Festival! You can find directions here!

Camera Obscura will finish up their North American mini-tour in Canada this weekend. We can't wait for them to come back for a more extensive tour & a new record! In the meantime, visit the Merge store to fill those holes in your Camera Obscura catalog!

2007 Team Clermont Prom - It's all fun & games until Calvin Johnson writes on your kickball shirt

The annual Team Clermont PBR Ball and Summerfest, complete with Professional Kickball Tournament, was just as fun as always. This year, K Records ringleader Calvin Johnson performed while the K's got hydrated and prepared to kick some W booty.

The game conveniently ended in a tie!

So I am no longer the prom queen, but there are always the CMJ Awards to look forward to.

Just call me "sexy phone voice kronmiller"-
