"I did not take those drugs or steal those underpants."

Hidden Cameras’ Origin:Orphan North American Fall Tour

The Hidden Cameras never do things on a small scale; their live concerts always actual events rather than just shows. Orchestrated by leader Joel Gibb, their performance spectacles can feature everything from blindfolded band members and string players to go-go dancers shimmying alongside full gospel choirs. The Hidden Camera’s latest work, Origin: Orphan, is as equally ingenious as their four previous albums and is due out in this country on September 22nd on Arts&Crafts.

But the news just keeps getting better. The Hidden Cameras have announced a massive North American tour in support of the aforementioned fourth full-length, Origin:Orphan, kicking off October 21st in Peterborough, ON and wrapping December 3rd in Chicago, IL.

I urge you to attend a show near you, a Hidden Camera’s performance always unforgettable.

Good news indeed! A Hidden Cameras show is always a spectacle (even if Joel Gibb did once almost stomp on me with his great big boots).

I rather like how they are playing a bar in Calgary this time. It will give the evening an entirely different feel. (And perhaps I won't get stepped on.)

Sorry to hear you were stomped at the Hidden Camera's show Barbara. I mean I can understand if you were at a Stomp show and were trodden upon. Kinda goes with the territory y'know? But stomped by Joel Gibb? That just doesn't equate. Now had you had underwear hurled in your direction I get that...

Anyway... If you do attend the show I would demand an apology. It only seems right.
