Live at TONY: Toro Y Moi performs "Before I'm Done"

When Charleston, SC, indie-pop musician Toro Y Moi (real name Chaz Bundick) showed up to our office, there was rather visible proof of miscommunication—Chaz, who had misunderstood the request from his publicist, had forgotten to bring an instrument. Luckily enough, our savior was only eight floors below, in the form of SIR Stage 37, an instrument rental business that let us nab one of its Takamine acoustic guitars for the taping. Without them, these spare, rare acoustic performances would not be possible, so big props, SIR. For more NYC music coverage, visit
