There was little chance that I was going to miss Caribou's return trip to Boston after last May's psychedelic drubbing, which still ranks up there as one the best shows I've seen this year. And even though the venue was different, the result was pretty much the same: synchronized drum madness, whirling synth peaks, and strobe lights.

All signs surrounding Caribou's sold-out Middle East gig hinted that
summer may finally be upon us: a humidity-free week that gave way to a
comfortable Thursday evening, a blissful opening set from Toro Y Moi,
and a back catalogue that exudes imagery of pleasant days ahead.
