With nary a break in sight, Canada's favourite name changing electronic pop artist, Caribou, will take fellow Canucks Junior Boys and Russian Futurists across their wide expanse of a homeland this summer. Caribou (real name: Dan Snaith) has already been on the go since mid-April touring the UK, and picked up the other two acts at the end of the month for a run across America.
Playing for a North Carolina audience tonight (May 9th), the members of The Milk of Human Kindness Tour won't make it home until they hop from Seattle to Victoria on May 29th. From there the three acts will head towards their collective Ontario home, finishing up Caribou's world tour with a special Toronto show that was just announced.
Not only will Caribou, Russian Futurists, and Junior Boys perform at the Toronto "Tooth and Nail Perennial" on June 11th, but Four Tet, Sunburned Hand of the Man, and Expensive Shit DJ will also be there. Tickets for the no minors gig are available through Ticketmaster.ca for $17.50.
