There aren't many bands that I get very excited about anymore - at least not enough to actually get off my ass, buy a ticket and catch a performance. Tinariwen is a notable exception. So, imagine my joy yesterday when I found out they were coming to Minneapolis sometime in July.
Of course, this morning, while trying to get more details, I found out that the show was last Friday and I missed it completely. Again.
Anyway, here's a youtube clip from last year's show (which I also missed):
Update (you can file this one under "WTF?"): Tinariwen denied entry visa for two different Canadian folk festivals
