Went to see Laurie Anderson’s show, Language of the Future, last Saturday night.
Anderson has always appealed to me, even though she is about as far way as you can get from my musical sweet spot, American root music. I don’t know a lot about her type of art, but it seems to me her way of combining music, words, and multi-media is something special. I also have an affinity for her existential themes, and her relationship with the Beat generation.
I wish I could buy a dvd of the concert; type of thing it would nice to watch over and over.
