Algiers couldn’t be here – we’re Tangiers
All the praise is well-deserved as Algiers provide a show and music that makes you move as much as it makes you think.
Algiers—named for the 1960s film about an anti-colonial uprising—sits proudly in the former camp. Algiers are as much musicians as they are storytellers, peeling back layers of history and shaking them up in a stylistic grab-bag, then unleashing them as a soulful outburst sound.
Below we collected some of the tweets/photos/videos from fellow Big Ears travellers who witnessed the show at The Standard (as well as some tweets about the secret show).
Algiers performs at The Standard for #BigEarsKnox.
