Is there way to hear about Djembefolas in town?

What:
Is there a way to stay up on who's going to be in town, without going to each and every Djembefola's personal Facebook page?

Why:
I just missed out on Basside Kone performing and teaching in my hometown (Oakland CA).
But I only know because Dougafola mentioned he's there now (Santa Cruz CA)

I'd hate to miss another opportunity, but I don't really know how to prevent it.

Thanks Dugafola, how'd you find that out? I can't see it on his Facebook page. No mention of SF or East Bay either.

Thanks Dugafola.
Will you post an event announcement on the forum?

I'd love to go to that event, but I think it might be out of my depth. I watched videos of his workshops on youtube, and he's extremely skilled and knowledgeable.
Last night I watched a talk by Mamady Keita, which made me realize I'm a know-nothing westerner with nontraditional/wayward practice under my belt, who needs to go back to basic training.
If only there was a music school for djembe/dunun around here...
(As wonderful as the video resources are online (much gratitude) I find it a lot more challenging to focus on videos than learn from someone in person. But private lessons are too expensive for me)
