    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of August 7–9
    James Quine

    Dan Auerbach, after rocking out with Black Keys band mate Pat Carney at last weekend's mud-covered All Points West finale, brings songs from his solo Nonesuch debut, Keep It Hid, to another of the summer's big festival events, Lollapalooza. He'll hit the stage in Chicago's Grant Park Sunday evening. The night before, Dan plays a more intimate, late-night set at Schuba's Tavern with Cage the Elephant.

    The Low Anthem makes its way to Lollapalooza, as well, after playing a festival of a rather different sort, the 50th anniversary Newport Folk Festival, last weekend; the set begins at noon on Saturday. All this week, the band has been playing touring with fellow Newport Folk and Lollapalooza artist Joe Pug, a Chicago resident, who'll join the band for a Lollapalooza afterparty concert at the local venue the Hideout.

    The Chicago festivities for The Low Anthem follow a performance with another Lollapalooza performer, Brooklyn's Langhorne Slim, at The Summit in Columbus, Ohio, tonight. They'll all hit the road together for several dates beginning next week in Newport, Kentucky.

    After nearly a year on the road through North America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe, David Byrne is set to play the last two scheduled dates of his Songs of David Byrne & Brian Eno tour: the Edinburgh Playhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Saturday, and, finally, the Big Chill Festival at the Eastnor Castle Deer Park in the Malvern Hills of Ledbury, Herefordshire, England, on Sunday. Byrne's Playing the Building project at the Roundhouse in London continues through the end of the month.

    Toumani Diabaté kicked off a two-week tour of the US and Canada with banjo master Béla Fleck earlier this week in a free concert and film screening at New York's Central Park SummerStage. "At its best," says Spinner in its concert review, "music is the universal language and Fleck and Diabaté treated fans to a unique instrumental dialogue. Their musical discussion ranged from fun to melancholic and, in the end, it was all deeply passionate and unique."

    After sets in Maine and Vermont earlier this week, the tour heads South to the Shrine Mont Camp and Conference Center in Orkney Springs, Virginia, for the Shenandoah Valley Music Festival tonight. On Sunday, it's back up North for the tour's only Canadian date, at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival held in Edmonton's Gallagher Park.

    There's more music making and more to celebrate in Newport, Rhode Island, this weekend. Last weekend, it was the 50th anniversary of George Wein's Folk Festival; this weekend it's the 55th anniversary of Wein's Newport Jazz Festival. Joshua Redman puts together a Double Trio, the format featured on his latest Nonesuch release, Compass, to add to the celebration at Newport's Fort Adams State Park with a Saturday afternoon set. Joining Redman in the Double Trio will be bassists Omer Avital and Matt Penman and drummers Brian Blade and Greg Hutchinson.

    Allen Toussaint is in San Jose, California, to play the Main Stage at Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park Saturday evening, part of the San Jose Jazz Festival. The San Jose Mercury News previews the performance with a feature profile of the legendary New Orleans artist. The article examines Toussaint's long and varied career, not least his recent Nonesuch debut album, The Bright Mississippi, featuring "Toussaint's supple, easy-rolling piano."

    Sara Watkins joins Texas country-folk man Robert Earl Keen at the Fraze Pavillion at Lincoln Park in Kettering, Ohio, tonight.
