    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of November 20–22

    Ry Cooder continues his tour of the Southern Hemisphere with Nick Lowe, Joachim Cooder, and special guest Juliette Commagere in Australia, in a Saturday set at the Brisbane Convention Centre. The group's recent performance in Auckland, New Zealand, "rose past the highest expectations," says the New Zealand Herald's Graham Reid. He cites the "masterful musicianship, warmth from the stage, and music of sometimes great emotional depth ... which was uncompromisingly delivered." Reid's conclusion: "Exceptional."

    And speaking of uncompromising, there's a fascinating feature profile of Cooder in Australia's The Age that takes a candid look at his life and career, including the "uncompromising comeback" of his recent California Trilogy on Nonesuch: Chávez Ravine, My Name Is Buddy, and I, Flathead.

    Björk celebrates her 44th birthday on Saturday with a special Top 10 countdown on MTVE, according to bjork.com. Says the site: "All the style and weirdness rolled into this Top 10 with Björk who is known fabulously for her artistic flair, her outspokenness and her very special self genre of music."

    David Byrne is at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City on Saturday to participate in The Red Book Dialogues. It's a series, tied to the museum's exhibition The Red Book of C.G. Jung, that pairs personalities from different walks of life with a psychoanalyst to respond to a piece from Jung's Red Book as a starting point for a wider conversation.

    For Saturday's sold-out event—jumping off point: "Analysis is like a lobotomy. Who wants to have all their edges shaved off?"—Byrne will be speaking with Dr. Sherry Salman, a Jungian analyst and author of the forthcoming book Dreams of Totality: Where We Are When There's Nothing at the Center.

    John Adams will participate in a Red Book event in January. For more information on the series, visit rmanyc.org.

    The Brooklyn Academy of Music hosts three staged performances of the Philip Glass opera Kepler, about pioneering scientist Johannes Kepler, this week as part of BAM's Next Wave Festival. Performances began on Wednesday and continue tonight and tomorrow night. The Bruckner Orchestra Linz performs, with Dennis Russell Davies conducting. You can watch a video interview with the composer at bam.org.

    New York audiences can also see Glass discuss the project in a public Artist Talk at BAM's Hillman Attic Studio. He'll join Science Channel presenter and theoretical physicist Michio Kaku, author of Physics of the Impossible and Beyond Einstein, for a conversation about superstrings and the sound of the cosmos.

    Emmylou Harris performs at the University of Colorado's Macky Auditorium in Boulder tonight with her Red Dirt Boys and special guest Buddy Miller. The Denver Post spoke with Harris in advance of the performance and describes her as "a songwriter's songwriter and a collaborator's dream." The Billings Gazette says Harris shone at her career-spanning show there earlier this week.

    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. Banhart hand-picked the locations for their cultural, historical, and emotional significance: the Mountain, Bob Baker Marionette Theater, The Broad, and the Underground Museum. 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."
