Governors Island

Canadian electronic musician Daniel Snaith, better known as Caribou, once performed under the moniker Manitoba until he was sued by Dick Manitoba, the former frontman for the New York punk band The Dictators. This little bit of trivia really has bearing on Caribou’s musical abilities whatsoever. Although Caribou is an electronic musician, he performs live with a band and take on the role of a percussionist.

Phantogram are the pride of Saratoga Springs, NY. They were dubbed their origial record label’s “first big success” by the Albany Times Union. Phantogram’s dance-friendly sound enabled them to open for many big acts and perform at SXSW.

Opening tonight are The Chain Gang of 1974
