We saw the Tuareg sensations in one of that venue that used to be called the Music HQ and is now called something else. Tinariwen are great, but this was not a great event. The venue was too full, and it was too full of cockfarmers, giving the place a close and unpleasant air. Weird acoustics meant that there was a lot of crowd noise, even though the there were not really that many talkers present. Still, Tinariwen remain an exceptionally impressive live band, one I would like to see again in a different venue.
