Contemporary composers Steve Reich and Philip Glass have announced that they'll perform together for the first time in over 30 years, as the kickoff event for "Nonesuch Records at BAM", the label's 50th anniversary going down this September.
"Nonesuch Records at BAM" also includes an event with Devendra Banhart, Stephin Merritt (who's involved in another BAM event happening sooner), and Iron & Wine; one with Natalie Merchant and Sam Amidon; another with Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet; two nights of Robert Plant and more. Full schedule below.
The Steve Reich/Philip Glass event is also part of the 2014 Next Wave Festival. Still not many details on that, but we do know Bryce Dessner and Brooklyn Youth Chorus are performing. Members can get tickets to Next Wave starting June 16, and the general public starting June 23.

"I was fortunate to catch The Punch Brothers at the Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night. I think I've seen them perform a good six times in the last year and a half? Honestly, I've lost count, because I've probably seen Chris Thile (who is part of the band) just as many. I consider it such a privilege to live in a city that not only breeds and encourages new talent but also offers up many an opportunity to see the music I love. I could (and have) gone on about this band before, but each concert I attend is different and amazing. The Secret Sisters opened and Karen Elson, the supermodel married to Jack White, performed with the bands as well." [Delighted & Charmed]That review refers to the 1/15 Punch Brothers and Secret Sisters show at Bowery Ballroom where special guest Karen Elson joined both bands.
Punch Brothers will return to Bowery Ballroom on April 16th, this time for a revival of p-Bingo Night...
"p-Bingo Night is Punch Brothers' creative process (made slightly more entertaining, hopefully) on display at the Living Room [ on Thursday nights in 2009 and 2010]. In addition to other delights, you can expect to see the Brothers trying out new material, improving existing material, and appropriating material that they wish was theirs, i.e. Radiohead, Bach, D'Angelo, James King, etc., right in front of your very eyes... or ears, rather, though music is generally better seen than heard. Also, there will be Special Guests, the coattails of whom the Brothers will surely ride to fame and fortune! Please note: little to no bingo will be played."Tickets for the April Bowery show are on sale. Check below for the full slate of PB dates which stretch from coast to coast and into June.
Among those dates are also two solo dates for Punch Brothers mandolin master Chris Thile. The first of those dates, Feb 8th, will see him team with Michael Daves for a sold-out date at Rockwood Music Hall. The second is March 2nd at Le Poisson Rouge with Gabriel Kahane and Brad Mehldau. Tickets are still available.
Gabriel Kahane also plays a show at Merkin Concert Hall as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival three days after LPR.
