U2 coming to Baltimore; Alex Ross coming to Politics and Prose; The dawn of recorded sound at Library of Congress
By Chris Richards
- Bono's back is better and his band is bound for Baltimore. After allowing its frontman to recover from back surgery, U2 will bring its epic 360 Tour to Charm City's M&T Bank Stadium on June 22. Florence and the Machine is set to open. Tickets go on sale Nov. 8 at 10 a.m.
- New Yorker music critic Alex Ross will speak at Washington's Politics and Prose bookstore tonight at 7 p.m. After winning the National Book Critics Circle Award for his excellent history of 20th century music "The Rest Is Noise," Ross is in Washington promoting "Listen to This," a new collection of essays.
- Tonight, the Library of Congress hosts a discussion on Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville, an amateur inventor whose experiments with recorded sound predate Edison's phonograph by 20 years. The chat takes place this evening at 7 p.m. at the Library's Mary Pickford Theater, located on the third floor of the Madison Building at First and Independence Ave., S.E.
