Calexico celebrates the release of its new album, Algiers, with a stop at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington, Del.

The shape-shifting collective's two constants are founders Joey Burns (vocals/guitar) and John Convertino (drums), who've released six albums and five EPs together. Calexico's music bears hints of country, jazz and indie rock, combined with richly evocative lyrics that tell moving, dramatic stories of the pair's native Southwest.

Set List
  • "Epic"
  • "Splitter"
  • "Fortune Teller"
  • "Maybe On Monday"
  • "Sunken Waltz"
  • "Para"
  • "Puerto"
  • "The Vanishing Mind"
