Mos Def announces show at the Guthrie on August 23

In an odd and possibly great announcement this morning, the Guthrie Theater's Wurtele Thrust Stage is presenting Mos Def on August 23rd. We say odd because of the obvious choice for such a show, First Ave's Mainroom, is the polar opposite of the Guthrie's intimate stage; the next show booked there is legendary acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke. And possibly great because well, it could be a great show.

Neither his company or official website/Myspace page are very useful in ascertaining any information about his schedule, though Talib Kweli's Twitter page this morning announced a Black Star show on August 7th at San Francisco's Fox Theater if you were feeling too lucky for a second.
