Manu Chao putting in fest, other North American appearances

    Via Brooklyn Vegan:
    I know people who approach Manu Chao’s music like it’s a religion. Now those folks will be able to get their church on as Chao, with his band Radio Bemba Sound System, will put on a string of concerts on this continent. They’re playing a trio of huge summer festivals–Coachella, Sasquatch!, and Bonnaroo–as well as appearing in an installment of the Celebrate Brooklyn series. Here’s to guessing they’ll announce inclusion in Lollapalooza soon.
