Early next year, Tuareg folk rockers Tinariwen will release their seventh album, Elwan, which features contributions from Matt Sweeney, Mark Lanegan, and Philly’s own Kurt Vile, to name a few. You can check out the gorgeous new video for “Ténéré Tàqqàl” below, and this coming April 18th, you catch the band live when they roll through Union Transfer. They’ll be joined by the also fantastic Dengue Fever, a band whose music is significantly more pleasant than the mosquito-borne illness for which its named.
If you’re looking for a break from the traditional rock and pop that dominates the American concertgoing landscape, this pairing is not to be missed. I’m not your dad, so I’m not going to try to tell you what to do; just know that I have your best interest in mind. Find tickets and information over XPN’s Concert Calendar.
