    SNL

    David Byrne is the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend, with host John Mulaney. Byrne performs songs from his American Utopia on Broadway with musicians from the production. His critically acclaimed show—which The Hollywood Reporter calls “astonishing … a knockout celebration of music, dance and song. Pure bliss.”—returns to Broadway’s intimate Hudson Theatre for a second run this September. The cast album for David Byrne's American Utopia is available now via Nonesuch Records. Spike Lee’s film of the production will be released later this year.

    Composer John Adams leads Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, pianist Víkingur Ólafsson, and tenor Ian Bostridge in the French premiere of his new piano concerto, Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?, at Auditorium Radio France in Paris tonight. The program also includes Stravinsky’s The Nightingale's Song and Debussy’s The Book of Baudelaire, as well as several works by Philip Glass.

    Adams’s groundbreaking first opera, Nixon in China, is being performed at the Festival Theatre by the Scottish Opera, led by John Fulljames, through Saturday. “The most influential opera of the last few decades,” says the Guardian, “it has lost none of its power and remains Adams’s finest stage work.”

    Early James plays the Granada Theater in Dallas on Saturday, as special guest of The Lone Bellow. His forthcoming debut album, Singing for My Supper, due March 13 on Easy Eye Sound / Nonesuch Records, is “luminous,” writes Mojo in its four-star review. “When Early James sings for his supper, every Michelin-starred chef in Christendom should plate-up.”

    Daniel Wohl, currently touring the UK and Europe as special guest of A Winged Victory for the Sullen, performs at Round Chapel in London tonight, St Paul’s Church in Birmingham on Saturday, and St Luke’s in Glasgow on Sunday.

    Wohl's album État was released last year on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. NPR Music calls it a “potent dreamscape of clicks, creaks, jagged interruptions, aching melodies and enough new sounds to keep the most tech-obsessed gear heads guessing,” adding that Wohl is “a sorcerer of electroacoustic sonorities.”
