Playground Weekender: Sideshows Announced
Caribou! Four Tet! Together at last!
Once upon a time, a young man named David Snaith (aka Caribou) met another young man named Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet). David had just seen Kieran play at a small music festival in the English countryside, and he decided to introduce himself after the gig. The two got on like a house on fire, David gave Kieran a CD and to cut a long story short - the latter found a label that wanted to release it.
Just over ten years later, the lovely people at Playground Weekender have just announced sideshows for Caribou and Four Tet. Together! Isn't that nice?
