Caribou @ Sasquatch
Sasquatch

Seattle Weekly: Where did the name Caribou come from?

Daniel Snaith: It came from an acid trip actually. We were touring Canada at the time, and I knew I had to change the name. We had a day off and we were just hanging out in the prairies. We sat in a field and took acid, and that name appeared to me during that.

Caribou, Local Natives & Freelance Whales all played Sunday at the Sasquatch Festival in Washington State. Pictures & videos from their sets are in this post.

Caribou, Local Natives & Freelance Whales all play shows on Governors island this summer, as do Wild Nothing (added as opener on the Morning Benders / Freelance Whales date) and Alberta Cross (added as opener for Portugal. The Man). The first free Governors Island show is THIS Saturday (Yeasayer). More pictures, and some videos (including a Caribou dance party) from Sasquatch Day Two, below...
