    Video: Carolina Chocolate Drops Preview Upcoming European Tour

    The Carolina Chocolate Drops brought the latest leg of their US summer tour to a close with a free concert at the Radio Summer Camp Backyard BBQ in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, yesterday. Up next, the Drops bring the music of their Nonesuch debut album, Genuine Negro Jig, to Europe for a brief tour through the summer festival circuit there, with stops at the Cambridge Folk Festival, Scotland's Southern Fried Festival, Norway's Notodden Blues Festival (the band's Norwegian debut), and Belgium's Dranouter Folk Festival.

    The US tour resumes at the end of August. Before then, and before the band heads off to Europe, fans in New York City can catch Carolina Chocolate Drops' Rhiannon Giddens when she joins Sxip Shirey for a performance at City Winery on July 24.

    Prior to yesterday's show in Milwaukee, the band made a quick return home to North Carolina to perform at the 13th Annual MusicFest 'n Sugar Grove earlier this month. While there, the trio sat down for a quick video chat about that festival and the upcoming European tour. You can watch it here:

To pick up a copy of Genuine Negro Jig, now out on vinyl, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include instant downloads of all the album tracks as MP3s, plus seven exclusive bonus MP3s recorded live.

    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."
