Bird Flu Creator M.I.A. Infects SF's Rickshaw Today

Categories: Music

Following up on her last single “Bird Flu,” which propagated online earlier this year, M.I.A. has just released her second new song, “Boyz.” The latter tune and its kinetic Jamaican-themed video seem to suggest that M.I.A.’s forthcoming album Kala will dig deeper into her singular, electro-charged funk sound and be at least as fierce as her genre-smashing debut Arular. Visa difficulties have caused the U.K. citizen to cancel some past performances in this country, but a recent Village Voice story makes it sound like the performer is now in the clear. A San Francisco M.I.A. show in such a small venue is almost certain to get crowded, so arrive early when M.I.A. performs on Saturday, July 28, at Rickshaw Stop at 9 p.m. Admission is $25; call 861-2011 or visit for more info.-- Tamara Palmer
