    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of March 26–28
    Ryan Mastro

    The Low Anthem began its headlining tour of the West Coast, with Timber Timbre opening, last night at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angles. While in LA, the group stopped by the KCRW studios in Santa Monica to talk with Morning Becomes Eclectic host Jason Bentley and perform several songs off  their Nonesuch debut album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin—"Ticket Taker," "To the Ghosts Who Write History Books," "Home I'll Never Be," and "To Ohio"—and a few new songs off the forthcoming follow-up. You can listen to the entire segment online now at kcrw.com.

    The tour continues up the Coast this weekend with performances at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco tonight, and Doug Fir Lounge in Portland on Sunday.

    The San Francisco Chronicle says tonight's show is one not to be missed. "In an age of hi-fi digital recording," the Chronicle's Chloe Roth writes of Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, "it is refreshing to hear the humans behind the sounds." Read more at sfgate.com.

    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.

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.
