Manu Chao, May 30 

The ever-ebullient Manu Chao took the stage at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and blazed through an over two-hour-long set. Here's what we saw.

Ricardo, on the left, checked out $10 Manu Chao T-shirts sold by a street hawker outside the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium after the concert Wednesday night. He instead bought the shirt off the hawkers back for $20 bucks, a tribute to Eskorbuto, a 1980's punk band from Basque region of Spain. He then realized it was printed on a soccer jersey, and probably wasn't from Spain at all. Damn.
