Tinariwen


I just don't even know what to say about this band! I saw them tonight at the Cat's Cradle with my good pal Laura. The last time I was there for a concert, my kid was on the stage playing with her band and tonight she was crewing on a set at film school. What a change in just a few short months. I called her from the parking lot after the concert and sat there talking to her for about 45 minutes. Wish she could have been with us tonight, but Laura and I danced our asses off. If you EVER have the chance to see this band GO!
One of THE BEST concerts I have been to, and I have been to a lot of them! It was like a spiritual experience or something, I have never seen a band like this. Thanks for getting the tickets Laura!!!!!!! It's 1:00 am and I have no idea when I will ever fall asleep......

Lori, they just had a new CD come out, I was in such a trance after the show, I forgot to look for the merch table! I'm definitely going out to look for it though.
Jim, there are some great clips of them on youtube and a really good documentary, check it out. I do post a lot, don't sleep much haha!

You've seen the light Tracey! I was telling folk how good they are only recently. I remember watching some documentary, some years ago, where Andy Kershaw was at the desert festival.. and it seemed so amazing, stars, dunes and these amazing sounds.
... take that trip!!

Scott, it was the most brilliant concert I have been to in a very long time! If you have a chance to see them GO!
$20 for a ticket, when super stars are charing hundreds and their concerts are nothing like this!
