Vieux Farka Touré

Tue, Jun 2 - Wed, Jun 3, 2020

The son of Malian music royalty, the legendary Ali Farka Toure, Vieux Farka Touré is often referred to as the Hendrix of the Sahara, a title meant more to convey the point that the man is a brilliant guitarist than to suggest that there's anything remotely Hendrix-esque about his playing (which there isn't). He's an altogether different kind of awe-inspiring.

Delgres

SPECIAL: $16 COVER

Tue, Jun 23 - Wed, Jun 24, 2020

Drums that are both metronomic and feline, a dobro-guitar with riffs made from embers, telluric basslines that seem to escape from a dented tuba… Here is Delgres, a power-trio that’s reinventing the blues by injecting an abrasive rock transe in it, recalling the Tuaregs’ soul as much as The Black Keys or John Lee Hooker’s, while carrying Louis Delgres’ secular message : his heroic fight against slavery in the Guadeloupe island. This is how this rebellious and burning music means so much nowadays, by speaking to us through shivers, and vibrating our bodies as well as our minds.

Davina and The Vagabonds

Tue, Jul 7 - Wed, Jul 8, 2020

"Two things remain consistent at all her shows though: her throaty but cushiony voice, which has a sort of hard-mattress comfort to it that’s part Bonnie Raitt, part Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse; and her band’s rollicking New Orleans flavor, driven home by dueling horn players and a bayou-thick standup bass." -Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune
