"The daughter of a diplomat, Malian singer Rokia Traore grew up assimilating European and African cultures, and in her 10-year career, she's developed a sound that uses elements of Malian tradition in her own way. Traore's fourth album, Tchamantche, is just out, and it's her best and most daring work." Rokia plays the early show at LPR tonight. John Wesley Harding, Eugene Mirman and friends are the late show.

Dufus and Diane Cluck are playing Union Pool tomorrow.

Cinematic Orchestra play a free show tomorrow.

The rest of the bill at Union Hall tonight is pretty dang great as well:


ROMAN CANDLE (Chapel Hill, NC)
"Roman Candle is one of the best, most complete American rock bands to
surface in a decade ... After all, (they are) better at what they
do--writing imaginative pop songs and building them into captivating
four-minute Southern-air epics with the unleashed spirit of The
Replacements and unorthodox intuition of Wilco--than any other 'band
on the verge' in memory." -PASTE MAGAZINE

"Smartly orchestrated pop music with a bit of a dramatic flare. Think
Wainwright and Sufjan. A band to watch, we think." -THE L MAGAZINE

MATT JONES (Ypsilanti, MI)
"Matt Jones is my new favorite songer-singsunger ever. Probably just
my new favorite musician, period. He fingerpicks the meanest electric
guitar I've ever seen fingerpicked, his voice bobs and weaves, got
more whip-smart phrasing than my beautiful 8th grade English teacher
we were all secretly in love with (?), hits just the right amount of
note and slide. And the way this album is put together, by him and Jim
Roll at Backseat Productions, is just a million-piece seamless puzzle
of a crystal clear moon-black night on the mountain all alone…breaking
day into the glorious accordion sun which's beaming down to grow up a
full-scale Celtic life-affirming death-dirge by the climax of the
song. Sweet tooth boy / it's past or pleasure…" -JESSE ELLIOTT (THESE

"Led by ace flute and reed player Leah Paul, the Bridesmaids marry
indie-rock smarts to brassy Motown muscle." -TIME OUT NEW YORK

7:30 p.m.
