Toumani & Sidiki Diabaté

Royce Hall - UCLA

Los Angeles, CA 90095

8:00pm

Mali’s musicians are restlessly creative spirits who voice something universally transcendent amid even the most turbulent of times—that the human spirit needs music to find its place in a world of confusion. Toumani Diabaté is one of the most important of these artists; a beacon of hope and guidance. He plays the kora, a 21-string harp unique to West Africa, and is responsible for bringing this instrument to audiences around the world. Now performing with his son Sidiki, Diabaté traces his family of hereditary musicians back 71 generations. Their new album 'Toumani & Sidiki' (World Circuit Records) has been described as "the finest Toumani collaboration since his classic work with Ali Farka Touré" by The Guardian.

Pixies

Hollywood Bowl

Hollywood, CA 90068

With hundreds of mind-blowing shows under their belts going back to the '80s, Pixies remain an unstoppable force of alt rock. From Black Francis' shrieking vocals to Joey Santiago's angular ferocity on the guitar, the sonic greatness of their performances have made the chance to see them live one of indie rock's holiest grails. With Indie Cindy — the band's first new full-length since 1991 — hitting shelves in early 2014, Pixies are set to tour and take the world by storm, yet again. With hundreds of mind-blowing shows under their belts going back to the '80s, Pixies remain an unstoppable force of alt rock.
