    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of December 2–4
    Kyle Cassidy

    Since the release of their collaborative self-titled EP earlier this year, Carolina Chocolate Drops and Luminescent Orchestrii have performed live together only a handful of times, and tonight, at Duke University's Page Auditorium in Durham, North Carolina, the groups are set to play together once more. Durham magazine says the special pairing guarantees "a night full of high-energy and feet-stomping music."

    Tonight's one-night-only concert comes on the latest leg of the Carolina Chocolate Drops' US tour, which includes two additional shows in their home state this weekend: at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte on Saturday and the Orange Peel in Asheville on Sunday. Frazey Ford, of Americana band The Be Good Tanyas, opens both of those concerts as well as the remaining shows on the December tour. The Charleston City Paper, reviewing the Carolina Chocolate Drops recent show in the city, says the band "played beautifully together, creating a truly memorable night."

    Laurie Anderson and Steve Reich are guests on stage at The Greene Space in downtown New York City tonight for a special event honoring John Schaefer, the host of WNYC's New Sounds and Soundcheck, as he marks his 30th year on the air. The sold-out event includes Anderson, who was the first guest on New Sounds, and Reich, as well as performances from Ethel, Simone Dinnerstein, and Tift Merritt.

    As noted earlier today in the Nonesuch Journal, The Black Keys are set to perform on Saturday Night Live tomorrow night, just a few nights before the release of their new album, El Camino. With this appearance, they join Leon Redbone, the Blues Brothers, and Beck as the only musical guest to appear twice in one year. Next week, the band performs on The Colbert Report on Tuesday and the Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday. MTV Hive will livestream their album release show at New York’s Webster Hall on Monday.

    Check out these promos for Saturday's show with the band, host Steve Buscemi, and SNL's Andy Samberg:

    Shawn Colvin is in the Great Lakes region this weekend, starting things off in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she performs at The Ark tomorrow night.

This is Kronos Quartet's last scheduled appearance for 2011.

Up next is a Saturday night show at Sala BBK in Bilbao, Spain, where Mehldau is joined by Joe Martin on bass and Jorge Rossy on drums. Rossy was a member of the original Brad Mehldau Trio heard on the new box set The Art of the Trio Recordings: 1996–2001, due out on Nonesuch on Tuesday.
