Caribou Concert Canceled

We were all set up at the Rock and Roll Hotel to webcast this evening's concert by Caribou. Caribou is the music of Dan Snaith. You can hear some here.

Then, as I was setting up my gear at the Rock and Roll Hotel, Dan walked up to me and said, " I've got some bad news for you. Our drummer injured his wrist and we have to cancel the show." Turns out that drummer Brad Weber was setting up the video projector and was on a ladder that was a bit rickety. I saw his wrist which was quite swollen. It had already been sore from a previous injury and there was no way he would risk hurting it more. So it was off to the emergency room at a nearby hospital and we will have to wait for Caribou to wander around this way some other time.

It is a real shame.

I did get a chance to to have a nice conversation with Dan before the show was canceled. You can listen to it here:

Sorry to miss Caribou -- I've been getting curious about Dan Snaith's music after hearing your references to him. Another time, then (and I'll click the imbedded link). Just wanted to thank you for All Songs -- in the year I've been dl'ing the podcast, I've listened to --and followed up on-- more new music than in the previous ten years put together. Someone should tell Robert Sapolski to start listening to All Songs Considered!
