    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of July 19–21
    Tonje Thilesen

    Vagabon performs on the Vera Stage at the Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle on Saturday. She can also be heard around the world when she visits KEXP in Seattle at 1pm PT today; tune in then at kexp.org. Vagabon begins a fall tour in October, including headlining shows in New York, Los Angeles, London, Brussels, Berlin, and Paris, as well as a run supporting Angel Olsen.

    Vagabon’s Nonesuch debut album, All The Women In Me, out September 27, is available to pre-order now with an instant download of the track “Flood Hands.” Nonesuch Store pre-orders—on limited-edition blue vinyl, black vinyl, CD, and cassette—also include an exclusive, autographed print.

    New York magazine’s Vulture says Vagabon “is shifting the music landscape as we know it; remember her name and follow her lead now.” Esquire says: “On a towering and confident sound, [she] expands the scope of her sound in ways that hint at a lengthy and promising career.”

    Laurie Anderson’s new virtual-reality piece, To the Moon, made with Hsin-Chien Huang, receives its US premiere at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City on Saturday, marking the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing and the start of a week-long presentation of the piece. To the Moon combines a dreamlike VR experience with an accompanying installation featuring film, images, and music. Anderson joins Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty for a conversation on Sunday afternoon.

    “I want people to surrender,” Anderson tells the Financial Times about the piece. “Artworks are for insight; to help people learn who they are, and how they appear to others. That disembodied, ghostlike feeling in the body. Some people say it’s scary, for some it’s just fun. In Denmark a lot of people cried. And that really pleased me. Because I don’t see the point in making art unless it tears your heart out.”

    Kronos Quartet brings music from Clint Mansell, George Gershwin, John Coltrane, Peter Townshend, and more to Bánffy Castle in Bonțida, Romania, on Saturday, as part of Electric Caste.

    As the group performs on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing this weekend, its groundbreaking collaboration with composer Terry Riley, Sun Rings, featuring plasma waves NASA collected from the Voyager probes, will be available as a complete recording for the first time on August 30. It may be pre-ordered now with an instant download of the album track “Beebopterismo,” a video for which was just released today.

    k.d. lang continues the UK leg of her Ingénue Redux world tour, celebrating the 25th anniversary of her acclaimed album Ingénue, with a sold-out show at Sage Gateshead tonight and a concert at Music Hall in Aberdeen on Sunday.

    “I appreciate the songs in a different way now,” lang tells the Scotland Herald ahead of Sunday’s show. “I’m happy that they’ve stood the test of time, and that they can be applied to life, and love, 25 years later. That’s always a good sign.” You can read what else she had to say here.

    Joshua Redman and the Still Dreaming quartet—drummer Brian Blade, bassist Scott Colley, and cornetist Ron Miles—bring music from their 2018 self-titled album to Italy this weekend, with sets at Teatro D'Annunzio in Pescara on Saturday, as part of Pescara Jazz, and Rocca Malatestiana Stage in Fano on Sunday, for Fano Jazz by the Sea.

    Redman and a different quartet —pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson—released Come What May earlier this year on Nonesuch. The Times of London gives it four stars, writing that “nothing beats the cool confidence of a band who have spent years on the road. It also helps that the seven Redman tunes here are so good ... Four men playing as one.”
