    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of February 26–28

    Punch Brothers perform at the Carson Four Rivers Center in Paducah, Kentucky, Saturday night. The band is sure to play songs from its forthcoming album, the follow-up to its 2008 Nonesuch debut, Punch. Chris Thile, who recently celebrated his 29th birthday, told the Paducah Sun: "I’m in celebration mode still (about the album) ... It turned out better than I could hope for."

    The band recently joined Fiona Apple and producer Jon Brion for a recording of a different sort, contributing a track to the benefit album Chickens in Love. Proceeds from album sales go to 826LA, a non-profit creative writing program for students ages 6 to 18. Apple and Punch Brothers cover the song "So Sleepy," written by students in the program. To listen to a clip from the track and offer a donation, visit 826la.org/chickensinlove.

As of this morning's report via Twitter, Alarm Will Sound was waiting for its flight from New York to clear the city's latest winter storm.

    Laurie Anderson brings her latest multimedia performance piece, Delusion, to the '62 Center for Theater + Dance at Williams College in Western Massachusetts tonight, with a post-concert discussion to follow. There will be an encore performance there Saturday night. Following the piece's recent world premiere in Vancouver for the 2010 Cultural Olympiad, Georgia Straight said, "Delusion ranks with Anderson’s best ... smart, funny, emotionally engaging, and flat-out beautiful—in short, everything you’d expect from an artist of Anderson’s stature and reputation."

    Carolina Chocolate Drops' US tour, which got under way yesterday in Indiana, continues through the Midwest this weekend with performances at the Saint Louis Art Museum tonight; Fitzgerald's in Berwyn, Illinois, on Saturday, and Schubas in Chicago on Sunday.

    The Other Paper, out of Columbus, Ohio, says the band's concert there last year "was one of the best surprises of the entire year." And now the band's recently released Nonesuch debut, Genuine Negro Jig, "completely takes me back to that magical night," says reviewer John Petric. "If you give one-half of a hoot and holler about true Americana," he exhorts, "you absolutely must check it out."

    "It’s easy to enthusiastically recommend Carolina Chocolate Drops," says Time Out Chicago. "They’re extremely talented and original musicians, proving that youthful old-time music is not an oxymoron. The virtuoso mix of fiddle, banjo and voice (with occasional kazoo) found in CCD’s vibrant Southern string music is still richer, more engaging and more vital than 90 percent of contemporary tunes."

The mayor of Duluth, Minnesota, recently named the band an honorary band of his city, prompting calls for Madison, Wisconsin, where the band played the Overture Center the following night, to follow suit. Not to be outdone, the Wisconsin capital's City Council responded by proposing a measure to declare the band members honorary citizens of Madison. For the complete text of the proposed resolution, which includes such suppositions as "WHEREAS, at least one member of the Common Council attended the [Overture Center] show and can attest to its excellence," visit The Cap Times at madison.com.

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."
