    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of June 3–5

    Laurie Anderson gives a free presentation of Lou Reed's Drones at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, this afternoon. Anderson and special guests will perform live throughout the afternoon alongside an installation of guitars from her late husband’s collection that will be curated by Reed’s former guitar technician Stewart Hurwood. Reed’s instruments are arranged with a group of amplifiers to create an enveloping drone of harmonics that shifts as the sound waves and the audience move through the space.

    Today’s event is part of a selection of free public programs the Hirshhorn is presenting in conjunction with Laurie Anderson: The Weather, the largest-ever US exhibition of Laurie Anderson's artwork, on view through July 31.

The concert celebrates iconic protest music from Latin America and the US, ranging from the pro-democracy and workers’ rights Nueva cancion, tropicalismo, and tonada songs made famous by legendary artists like Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Mercedes Sosa, Violeta Parra, and Simón Díaz to contemporary anthems.
