Caribou/Fuck Buttons Tickets

Caribou and Fuck Buttons are coming to town, and they're bringing a bucket full of trippyness with them. I told you about these bands just a few weeks ago, and if you want to get a first-person perspective I'm offering up a free pair of tickets for their show at Emo's outdoor this Sunday. To get an idea of what to expect from their performance, check out this review of their recent show from the New York Press:
"With swirling rainbows of colors projected over them, Caribou took the audience on a trip to the 60s. Apparently, the band’s name came to Snaith while on an LSD trip in Canada, and the tight mix of psychedelic pop with krautrock played by Caribou certainly fit with the color projections to make for a trippy experience. Every time the overuse of pre-recorded music started to be a let down, the band took things to a higher level to totally redeem themselves. Snaith, who plays everything on record, switched back and forth between guitar, keyboards and drums flawlessly, even occasionally playing the recorder."

"With all of the hype to live up to, the British duo (Fuck Buttons) cranked up their electronics as loud as they could go. Everything sounds better, or at least more powerful when it’s really loud, and this certainly was the case for Fuck Buttons. Songs that made for a pretty solid but unspectacular debut record hit the crowd with an undeniable force. Like many electronic groups, they weren’t overly exciting to watch, but this is certainly a band that need to be heard live to really be appreciated."

If you want to get down to Emo's on Sunday night to check out this show just send me an e-mail at covertcuriosity@gmail.com with Caribou in the subject line, and I'll pick a name at random. I promise the show won't get postponed due to damaged vocal chords this time. For more info point your browser to the event listing.
