Full story: El Paso Times
Ladysmith Black Mambazo's Albert Mazibuko laughs when he's told that the South African group's first El Paso concert will be the same day as that most vaunted of American cultural institutions -- the Super Bowl. Full Story

I won;t be going. I like Ladysmith and I like all black folks but not Mambazo. That's too over the top, too wanton for my tastes. They need to tone it down and simplify in these trying times. Who is going to go out to see some Mambazo after being without water all week?

I agree. I like Ladysmith and would have purchased my ticket prior to the whole crisis El Paso is going through if it had not been on Superbowl Sunday. Also I think it's a stupid idea to continue this show when half of El Paso is without water, can not bath, and has to deal to issues such as roofs caving in and broken pipes. I feel bad for the promoter going to lose a lot of money tonight, but it's also their own fault for not realizing El Paso is going through a mini crisis right now and these luxuries are one of the last things on our minds.
