Caribou, Veelee

When: Sun., Oct. 31, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Caribou's last set in Carrboro was a bit chaotic, with a gaggle of uninvited fans climbing on stage to dance too close to the gear. Can't blame 'em, though: That show was also one of the year's most intricate and inspiring dance parties. The tunes from the kaleidoscope rhythm force's best record to date, Odessa, felt both elaborate and soulful from the stage. For a few years, the tunes of bandleader Dan Snaith, an Ontario mathematician, indeed felt a bit cold and clinical. Odessa, however, bounds and swings with smarts; ideas swiped from 20th-century composers and German innovators come spliced seamlessly with dashes of American R&B and island dub. Excellent, and likewise twisted, Carrboro pop duo Veelee open. —Grayson Currin
