Caribou Wins the 2008 Polaris Music Prize

Caribou is the winner of the 2008 Polaris Music Prize. The announcement was made just moments ago on stage at The Phoenix.

Earlier, during a one hour media scrum I cornered a few of tonight's nominees and asked them for their predictions on who was going to walk away with tonight's $20,000 prize. Watch raw videos below of Shad, Caribou and Holy Fuck. Here's Caribou's Daniel Snaith:

Holy Fuck (they also were good enough to answer a question about the arts funding broohah):

Shad:

Prior to the announcement, I heard that Polaris Grand Jury member Frank Yang from Chromewaves voted for Caribou. The CBC's Jian Gomeshi was pulling for The Weakerthans and George Stombo was vying for Shad.
