    Caetano Veloso Rocks Boston
    Fernanda Negrini

    Caetano Veloso performed at Boston's Orpheum Theatre last Friday, and in today's Boston Globe, staff writer Joan Anderman reports on what was a full-on rock show by "the gifted and eclectic Brazilian superstar." With the focus of the concert on Caetano's latest album, the rock-influenced , "the setting was stripped-down and austere by the artist's standards, but the ideas were not." Writes Anderman in her song-by-song review:

    Art-punk was the show's main touchstone, and the spirits of a couple of rock's deepest, freest thinkers—David Byrne and Lou Reed—hovered throughout. "Musa Hibrida" took flight on the wings of Pedro Sá's spacey wah-wah guitar, which turned sweet for the modernist bossa nova "Um Sonho." While "Não Me Arrependo" and "Deusa Urbana" were built of bold melodies and galvanizing rhythms, "Outro" and "Odeio" traded in lighter, snappier textures, which grew ragged for "Rocks," whose roots can be traced to that proverbial bastion of youthful exuberance, the garage.

    Devendra Banhart will perform four ticketed, live-streaming concerts on Wednesdays this September, from four locations across Los Angeles, in a series titled OLA: Devendra Banhart plays songs in the order they were written. Banhart hand-picked the locations for their cultural, historical, and emotional significance: the Mountain, Bob Baker Marionette Theater, The Broad, and the Underground Museum. The concerts explore—in chronological order—songs from his catalog of ten albums. Moses Berkson directs the series; each show will feature one of Banhart’s frequent musical collaborators—including Noah Georgeson, Josiah Steinbrick, Gregory Rogove and Todd Dahlhoff—on a selection of songs.

    Lianne La Havas will play a one-off solo live show at London's Roundhouse on Wednesday, July 15, which will include new songs from her forthcoming, self-titled album and throughout her catalog. This very special, multi-camera, one-night-only performance will be broadcast via YouTube; tickets go on sale this Friday. La Havas will donate her proceeds to Black Lives Matter–related organizations. She has just released a cover of Radiohead's "Weird Fishes," the latest single from the new album, due July 17. The new track is "glorious," says Uncut; Mojo calls it "a show-stopper."
