Chris Wiersema’s Feed Me Weird Things listening series hosted another night of music and literature at Trumpet Blossom Cafe Thursday, Sept. 21. The real treat of the evening was Mdou Moctar, who traveled all the way from Niger and is in the middle of his first ever United States tour.

In addition to Tuareg rock and roll, the night featured readings from International Writing Program resident Antoinette Tidjani Alou and music from Iowa City jazz improvisors Thuh Chocolate Hog Boys.
