I don’t consider myself a Wes Anderson devotee in any way, but I do think that pulling Brazilian artist Seu Jorge for the soundtrack of The Life Aquatic was nothing short of genius. Already an established musician and actor in his home country, Jorge added a layer of retro curiosity and easy joy to well-known Bowie tracks without tacking on the schmaltz that typically goes along with attempting to cover the classics of such a legendary discography. I saw Seu Jorge perform this set, complete with a psychedelic visual tribute to Bowie, in Portland last fall, and I can say with zero hesitation that it ranks as one of my favorite concerts. I’ll be going again this summer with my sister and a Nalgene of wine, so feel free to join me in the zoo’s north meadow for a night of gentle nostalgia and expert musicianship. KIM SELLING
