Hometown hero and Destroyer bandleader Dan Bejar kicked off the North American leg of the Kaputt tour Thursday night in Vancouver. According to reports, Bejar kept one hand in his pocket for most of the set, occasionally turning his back to the audience to allow his eight-piece band to work it out on new songs and old favourites.

We have a setlist, tour dates and Ashley Tanasiychuk’s photos from the show.
