Tuareg guitarist Mdou Moctar, known for his film homage to Prince’s “Purple Rain,” returns to Richmond with his droning electric guitar, singing and desert soundscapes. How often do you get to see authentic communal music from Niger, with some wild Jimi Hendrix flavor and hand percussion thrown in like splashes of rain? If you missed his trio before, here’s your makeup chance. The show starts at 8 p.m. $10 in advance, $15 at the door. 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. galleryfive.org.
