CARIBOU (City Slang/Merge)

Having toured around the world playing his new long play Andorra, we are simply thrilled that Dan Snaith's Caribou is going to bring his FOUR piece Poptastic-Neu/Kraut-electro-'60's vocal influenced-visual roadshow back to Aberdeen on the last leg of the Andorra tour. Caribou's events always bring forth glowing sunshine and smiles; Come and see him in one of his favourite indoor venues, where his new VISUALS & his finely honed live sound will be guaranteed to "blow you away". An artist currently on absolutely TOP form in the live setting.

http://www.cyclicdefrost.com/blog/?p=1712 a review of one of his Australian festival appearances in mid January

"All up it was the most engaging Caribou live show yet, and one that would have sounded even better in a slightly different setting".

Caribou coming to one of his favourite UK venues will certainly provide that......look out for a special performance and a very special night, because we also have...


Fellow Ontarian's Born Ruffians are a three piece band who were signed to both the above labels in Europe & America on the basis of a four track demo. Built up their live shows with hyperactive stage antics, & small tours with Hidden Cameras & Hot Chip, but really honed their live craft when touring North America with Caribou for 6weeks last Oct/Nov. Here's the return leg in the UK, so Dan Snaith must like these kids a whole lot as well. Also chosen to play ATP v Pitchfork, so something must be special about them.

Their long play isn't out till May but has already been reviewed in advance by Pitchfork (8/10) on 27th Feb 08



Think this could be one very special night, so please note unless you are willing to jump about and smile a lot this event isn't for you. :rockon::partyboy::up:


Lastly, a very special offer:-

Buy a Caribou ticket in advance (including the still valid February ones), come the following night to our FANTASTIC Stars of The Lid* event with your Caribou ticket which will be endorsed, KEEP your Caribou ticket to present @ any one of our autumn events where the entry is 5 & you will get-in FREE.

*Stars of the Lid can be ticket in advance OR cash on the door BUT you must take your Caribou ticket to be endorsed.

what's the earlist Caribou will be on?

am i going to manage to stay at pittodrie till the bitter end or do i need to make a mad dash down king St at 9:30?

mike's response on the other thread...

as the timings stand Caribou will go on 9.50pm or 10pm at the very latest , so anybody going to the football could make all his set, even with a 7.45pm k.o. (just a shame to miss a very bouncy set from BR b4).
