It’s been many, many years (10 years ago) since we wrote about Tinariwen. We noted, “Tinariwen's path to musical stardom is very much linked to the complexity of African politics. Their website provides a detailed history and timeline, both of which I recommend as this band's past is fascinating.... As far as live performances are concerned, their show at the Sage was confident and compelling. This is a group that clearly enjoys their music and have quickly grown a massive following. World music, like world cinema, is a genre that shouldn't really exist. This is folk. This is blues. This is rock and roll.”
The Grammy Award-winning group is finally back on the road to bring awareness to the struggles of Mali and also promote their new record Elwan, available now on Anti- Records.
Dengue Fever to open. We previously talked about this Cambodian band in 2016 when they were on cross promotional tour for The Deepest Lake (Tuk Tuk Records) and the documentary “Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten”.
The band is known for mixing Cambodian rock, Afro grooves, surf, and garage psych, so this should be a good billing.

Perth, Australia’s Methyl Ethel is back in Minneapolis, this time headlining the 7th Street Entry next Wednesday, April 12th.
We caught the band in October 2016 and said that singer/guitarist Jake Webb, loved Minneapolis: “What a great city. It’s our favorite city in the United States! We’ll come back if you’ll have us again.”
Show up early to check out Blonder. The Brooklyn-based act is said to have the sound reminiscent of Day Wave or Sundara Karma... and with over 2 million streams of their music, fans would agree.
