- African music star Youssou N’Dour will perform a free show at the Kennedy Center on Wednesday, Sept. 21, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps. The Senegalese singer performed a sold-out show at Lisner Auditorium in July. Tickets are required for the free show, which takes place in the Concert Hall. They will be distributed starting at 4 p.m. the day of the performance.

- Have you heard that it’s the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s “Nevermind” this year? VH1 joins the celebration next Friday, Sept. 23 when it will broadcast “Nirvana: Live at the Paramount,” an hour-long concert movie with footage from the band’s Halloween homecoming show in 1991. A DVD release is scheduled for Sept. 27. Side note: I had a bootleg cassette of this show back in high school and it was my go-to Nirvana tape. Great version of “Endless, Nameless.”

- The Smoking Gun has details of how Interscope Records was used by a narcotics ring to ship cocaine across the country.
