Tinariwen, Kishi Bashi 

When: Sat., Oct. 20, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $28-31

On last year's Tasili, the desert blues band Tinariwen returned to the proverbial and literal campfire, dragging a bunch of gear out into the Sahara night to record an intimate set of magical folk-outs filled with hushed gang harmonies and starry ambience. They've returned to what they were doing previously: being one of the best bands in the world, from any continent, and touring endlessly. Leader and guitarist Ibrahim Ag Alhabib—he of the iconic Santana/Hendrix hair explosion—dismantles any notion of an international cool barrier, performing with a knowing charisma that transcends language. With Kishi Bashi. —Jesse Jarnow
