Grimes’ Hospitality Rider Is Eco- And Dog-Friendly

By Tom Breihan / October 8, 2013

Grimes is a dog person, apparently, and if you’re promoting a Grimes show, you should probably have a dog on hand. Claire Boucher recently posted a few excerpts of her tour rider on her Tumblr, offering this explanation: “i dunno if anyone cares about this stuff but im like obsessed with reading other peoples riders lol, so if ur anything like me perhaps this is of interest to you.” Here’s the bit about the dog: “If possible, one cute bulldog, french bulldog, pug or pomeranian (or other cute animal, such as a chinchilla or a pekanese) to visit and hang out but who gets to leave before too much loud noise is heard so that he or she does not hurt their ears. It is important that if said animal visits, they have a safe home to return to. lol.” She also has very specific instructions on keeping the backstage snacking area as eco-friendly as possible. Check it out above (via Tumblr). And she’s right; it’s pretty interesting.
