    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of November 22–24
    Tonje Thilesen

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko) completes a trifecta of hometown shows in New York City this weekend. Following last night’s Noisey Nights event at Villain in Brooklyn, she’s back in the borough to perform a sold-out show at Brooklyn Steel tonight, part of her tour as special guest of Angel Olsen. On Saturday, Vagabon is on Live From Here, hosted by Chris Thile from The Town Hall in New York City. Also on the show this weekend are Paul Simon, Anaïs Mitchell, Ryan Hamilton, and Holly Laurent. Folks in the US can tune in on their favorite public radio station this weekend and around the world via livefromhere.org, starting at 5:45 PM ET.

    Vagabon’s self-titled sophomore album, released last month on Nonesuch, has received widespread critical acclaim. “Each song on Vagabon feels like a small world,” writes the New Yorker. NPR Music says the album showcases “Tamko's growth and versatility as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, poet and all-around icon-in-the-making.”

    Turning from public radio to public television, a tune-in alert: Rhiannon Giddens and Yola are among the artists to be featured on Austin City Limits special presentation of performances from the Americana Music Association’s Americana Honors & Awards held at the historic Ryman Auditorium in September. Giddens took home the inaugural Legacy of Americana Award that night. Tune in on your local PBS station starting on Saturday and streaming online at pbs.org from Sunday.

    Devendra Banhart brings music from his new album, Ma, to Autodromo de León in León, Mexico, on Saturday, for Tecate Bajío Festival. “Banhart's singular world remains as intoxicating as ever on the earthly, analogue-sounding Ma,” says Q in its four-star album review. “It feels as if all of human life is here.”

    The Black Keys round out their "Let's Rock" tour on the West Coast this weekend: at Moda Center in Portland tonight, Tacoma Dome in Washington state on Saturday, and Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada, on Sunday. "Let's Rock," was released in June via Easy Eye Sound / Nonesuch Records.
