Kronos Quartet with Alim Qasimov Ensemble
GRAMMY-Winning Kronos Quartet with Alim Qasimov Ensemble
$15.00 - $19.00*
The multiple award-winning contemporary music group Kronos Quartet performs live at Schwartz Center for Performing arts with the Alim Qasimov Ensemble. Together they perform powerful pieces drawn from the repertoire of Azerbaijani ashiqs, traditional singer-songwriters who were born out of the Shamanistic beliefs of ancient Turkic peoples. The ashiqs perpetuated the oral traditions of their people and promoted the communal value systems of the culture, through songs that told tales of love and epic battles and wars. These wandering troubadours continue the tradition to this day. The legendary singer Alim Qasimov is one of these modern ashiqs and has been called "one of the most thrilling, unashamedly emotional performers on the planet" by The Guardian

L.A. alt-rockers Weezer follow the Los Angeles Dodgers into town for a postgame concert at Turner Field. First, you'll see Freddie Freeman, Justin Upton, Jason Heyward and the division-leading Braves take on the Western powerhouse Blue Crew, led by All-Stars Clayton Kershaw and Yasiel Puig. Then Weezer, the platinum-selling band that's released three self-titled albums, takes the stage with hits including "Pork and Beans," "Perfect Situation" and "Beverly Hills." Lead singer Rivers Cuomo and the group broke through in a big way in 1994, with their debut disc spawning huge singles like "Undone -- The Sweater Song," "Buddy Holly" and "Say It Ain't So," all of which came with creative videos that went into heavy rotation on MTV. They plan to release their 10th studio disc, Everything Will Be All Right in the End, in 2014. Learn More
