    Philip Glass and the Philip Glass Ensemble are at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn, New York, tonight to perform Glass's score to the 1988 film Powaqqatsi at an outdoor screening of the film, all a part of the Celebrate Brooklyn! series of summer events. Variety called Powaqqatsi (the Hopi word for "life in transition") "a stunning tour-de-force." It is the second in a trilogy of film collaborations between Glass and director Godfrey Reggio that began with the seminal Koyaanisqatsi in 1982. The Ensemble will be joined for the occasion by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.

    Glass will go on to Vail, Colorado, on Sunday to perform at the opening night event of the Vail International Dance Festival. The mixed bill will include performances by Paul Taylor Dance Company and former Martha Graham principal dancer Fang-Yi Sheu, among others, and feature live music from Philip Glass and cellist Wendy Sutter.

    Wilco kicks off their summer tour of the States in what could safely be considered one of the farther reaches of the US they've ever played: Fairbanks, Alaska. The group starts things off at The Blue Loon (theblueloon.com) tonight in their first-ever Alaska gig then heads south to Anchorage to play The Moose's Tooth (moosestooth.net) Saturday night. The Blue Loon's owner, Adam Wool, tells the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: “I think this is a bigger band than Fairbanks realizes. These guys have a huge fan base, and there are a lot of people coming up from the Lower 48 for this."
