    The Arcs Launch North American Summer Tour
    Alysse Gafkjen

    The Arcs launch a summer tour with a show at the Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina, tonight. The tour, with special guests Mariachi Flor de Toloache, makes stops throughout the eastern United States, Midwest, and Canada, including festival sets (Forecastle, Newport, Wayhome, Osheaga, Lollapalooza, and more) and shows at The National in Richmond, CMAC in upstate New York (as special guests of Ray LaMontagne), St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit, among others, as well as an official Lollapalooza aftershow at Park West in Chicago. See below for all of the band's currently scheduled shows; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    The Arcs released their debut album, Yours, Dreamily, last year on Nonesuch to critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone saying it "takes what Auerbach does at his best, in and out of the [Black] Keys—confessional, texturally enriched blues propelled with garage-rock force—and adds a riveting jump in eccentricity."

    Their live show has been described by the New York Times as a "rock and soul revue that can knock out Motown beats, fuzz-toned boogies or slow-grooving R&B." The Washington Post says, "When the Arcs take the stage, expect a party among friends that takes its form in expansive solos, singalong choruses and general merriment."

    'Tis the season to be jolly with holiday songs! To add our merry to the mix, we've created Nonesuch for the Holidays, a playlist of holiday tunes both classic and soon-to-be-so from The Staves, Chris Thile, Emmylou Harris, Kate & Anna McGarrigle with family and friends, Boston Camerata with eight centuries of Christmas music from Medieval to Renaissance to Baroque, and, of course, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, performed by the New York City Ballet Orchestra—plus, on Spotify, an exclusive from Rostam.

    Chris Thile was joined by fellow Punch Brothers Chris Eldridge and Noam Pikelny as they sat in with the band on his radio show Live From Here at The Town Hall in NYC on Saturday. For a post-broadcast encore, they performed "My Oh My," from Punch Brothers' album The Phosphorescent Blues, with guest Jon Batiste. You can watch it here. Also on the show were St. Vincent (with Thomas Bartlett on piano) and Sara Watkins.
