WITCH (We Intend To Cause Havoc) was the biggest rock band in Zambia in the 1970s and spearheaded a new genre dubbed Zamrock, combining influences that ranged from the Rolling Stones to Black Sabbath and blending them with traditional African rhythms and rustic songs.
In 2012, Now Again Records re-released the band’s entire discography, prompting the band’s lead singer Jagari to start performing outside of Africa for the first time. In 2016, he began collaborating with Dutch musicians Jakko Gardner and Nick Mauskovic, and in September 2017, WITCH embarked on their first European tour together.
In 2019, WITCH embarked on their first North American tour, including a performance at Desert Daze. The band is now returning to the US and Canada for a spring 2022 tour.
Tickets for the Arcata show cost $32.50 and can be purchased at https://miniplex.ticketleap.com/witch/dates/Jun-12-2022_at_0800PM.
Also performing that evening is L’Éclair, described as “a cosmic instrumental six from Geneva, Switzerland”.
