Show preview: Kronos Quartet

For more than three decades, Kronos Quartet has blown through musical borders with an appetite for innovation rarely found in any genre, let alone the often-traditional-leaning, classical-string-group milieu. After original cellist Joan Jeanrenaud left in 1999, the combo spiced up its repertoire with ear-bending works from Serbia, Palestine, Lebanon, India, Brazil, and Mexico. The upshot is a voracious international sound, technically brilliant and fearlessly creative. For its Yoshi's debut, Kronos trains its spotlight on a "jazz" program, interpreting the world-conscious compositions of John Zorn, Maria Schneider, Charles Mingus, Hamza El Din, and Philip Glass.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
