    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of July 31–August 2
    James Carney

    The Black Keys join Coldplay, Echo & the Bunnymen, and MGMT as the headlining artists for the final day of the three-day of the All Points West in New Jersey's Liberty State Park, overlooking both the majestic Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty. The view should be spectacular as the band takes the Bullet stage at 8:20 PM, just minutes after the sun is scheduled to set. For all the All Points West news, visit apwfestival.com.

    Dan Auerbach spoke with New Jersey's Star-Ledger about the upcoming gig and about getting back to the music of The Black Keys after the release of his solo debut, Keep It Hid, earlier this year. Interviewer Matthew Oshinsky suggests that the band's guitarist/singer/songwriter is "considered one of the best young hopes for blues music" (to which Dan demurs), and insists that along the way, Dan and Pat "have managed to stir elements of classic rock and folk into the mix without straying from the bone-rattling recipe they began with."

    Laurie Anderson will appear at the LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, New York this evening, for what Hamptons is describing as "a conversation with two remarkable women—revolutionary, world-renowned performance artist, Laurie Anderson and scholar, author and curator, Alexandra Munroe," of the Guggenheim Museum. Laurie will speak on her garden projects in Europe and Japan and reflect on how the Buddhist practice of awareness has inspired her "to see things as they are, to let them be."

    David Byrne's Songs of David Byrne & Brian Eno tour, after a two-week stint in cities and towns throughout Italy, has moved the show to the Benelux countries this weekend before jumping to the UK next week. On Saturday, it's the Lokerse Feesten in Lokeren, Belgium, and Sunday they're at Melkweg Robo Saal in Amsterdam.

    During his time in Britain, in addition to the three scheduled tour dates, Byrne will launch the London version of his Playing the Building art project. As he did last year with the Battery Maritime Building in New York and the Färgfabriken in Stockholm three years prior, Byrne will transform the 160-year-old Roundhouse building in Camden into a playable instrument. The project will run August 8-31. For more information, visit davidbyrne.com. For a preview and some history on the venerated venue from writer Tim Burrows in the Daily Telegraph, visit telegraph.co.uk.

    Richard Goode continues in his role as co-artistic director, with fellow pianist Mitsuko Uchida, of the renowned Marlboro Music program in Marlboro, Vermont. The intensive summer program for talented young professional musicians continues its monthlong season of concerts this weekend.

    The nearby Brattleboro Reformer says that something "close to perfection" is emanating from the Marlboro campus this summer. Reformer staff writer Jon Potter states:

    Already world-renowned as a premier chamber music retreat and training ground—a place where high artistry meets high ideals—Marlboro Music is experiencing something of a more perfect summer, with capacity crowds moved to tears and typewriters by weekend performances that have been deemed magic, even by Marlboro standards.
