Caribou & Toro Y Moi Live (5/23/10)

This past Sunday May 23, 2010 Dan Snaith and his Caribou ensemble came to San Francisco to play a show to a sold out crowd at The Independent, opened by Chaz Bundick’s Toro Y Moi.

Unfortunately I only caught the last few songs of Toro Y Moi’s set (which were solid) before Dan and the rest of the Caribou live band came out and played a lengthy set which ran through the majority of his stellar new album Swim while adding a few choice songs from the rest of his catalogue, going as far back as “Up In Flames” from his Manitoba days.

For those who don’t know, Dan Snaith formerly recorded music under the moniker Manitoba before changing the name to Caribou in 2004 after being threatened to a law suit by The Dictators frontman Richard “Handsome Dick” Manitoba. But I digress…

Anyways, I was able to record a couple of videos for your viewing and listening pleasure below. Check out Caribou playing “Leave House”, “Found Out/Bowls”, “Skunk”, and “Barnowl” live as well as Toro Y Moi finishing their set with potentially a new song (or maybe an old song or a cover song I don’t recognize). Either way, enjoy some tunes from an overall great concert and make sure to mark your calendars next time either one of these groups come through to your town.
