Holy Fuck at the still-inexplicable Rachel Ray SXSW show

Jolly enough to attract lapsed jammies and instrumental enough to draw lapsed Caribou fans, these Toronto keyboard heds translate their expletive in a roundabout way, if at all. Their formula asks a simple question: “Is the intro to ‘Baba O’Riley’ enough to base an entire web-rock career upon?” Thanks to movie trailer soundtracks, the answer could be yes. After opening for M.I.A. mere hours before this late show, they’ll either be on fumes or huffing fumes. Play it safe and load Who’s Next onto the iPhone before you leave. Also: Boy Crisis, Magic Wands. — RYAN DOMBAL.
