Toro y Moi @ Brooklyn Bowl - 3/26/10 (by Anna Hiort)
Toro y Moi

Toro y Moi is currently on tour with The Ruby Suns. Last night (3/26), was their NYC show at music venue and bowling alley Brooklyn Bowl (where the Grates play tonight). The show went as planned until later in the night after Toro y Moi (aka Chaz Bundick) packed up his car and was ready to leave. Still needing to get paid or use the bathroom or attend to some other matter (I'm not sure exactly what), he went back in to the club before taking off. During that short time, someone broke the lock on his car door and stole his clothes, passport and laptop!

That sucks so bad, though at least they didn't get his guitar which was also in the vehicle. Regardless, his laptop is essential to his live show so he was forced to cancel the next four dates including tonight (3/27) at The Middle East in Cambridge, and Vermont and two shows in Canada. He'll use that time to regroup, get some ID, get a new computer and meet back up with the Ruby Suns in time to play the March 31st show at Schubas in Chicago. Hopefully Chaz doesn't hold this against Brooklyn where he'll return to on May 7th to kick off a tour with Caribou. If you happen across any of his stuff, contact him. A video from the Brooklyn Bowl show below...

Man that really sucks, especially when your instrument is a Laptop.

This really sucks. I feel bad for the guy and hope that the cops can recover his stuff...but really, guy? Leaving your stuff packed in your car, in plain sight, at night, in any city, is a real amateur move. Seems like we hear this same exact story on here a few times per year with only the name of the city/venue/performer being changed.

brooklyn is unsafe. don't go there.

agreed with 8:04. I hope he can recover as quick as possible, but that wasn't a smart move. the area around Brooklyn Bowl can get very sketchy sometimes during the night.

9:53, go blow yourself.

I beg all of you please to keep your asses in the midwest and stay the fuck out of brooklyn. the hipster presence has destroyed what used to be a respected cultural city.

@ 2:23....seriously SFTU! A respected cultural city that you've contributed absolutely nothing toward! Moron!

Brooklyn is for suckers.

Brooklyn hipsters come from the South, not the Midwest.

Damn that sucks that he was robbed. Who is this guy anyways? Oh wait he is the dude that wrote "Chocolate Rain" right?

Thank fucking god they stole his laptop. I saw him at the bowery once before Jemina Pearl (who is a cunt) and Islands. Just another shitty laptop "artist" like Girl Talk.

"Just another shitty laptop "artist" like Girl Talk"??!!

That's like saying, "just another 4 blokes with guitar band".... surely, they can't be all the same....
