Lou and Laurie Go to the Dogs


Literally! On June 5, Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson will give a free concert on the North Boardwalk near Australia's Sydney Opera House. Here, they will perform Anderson's "Music for Dogs", a 20-minute piece where, although inaudible to human ears,"our canine friends will be treated to a glorious cacophony of sound while all we hear is the lapping of the water on the harbour."

Do you have a dog? Would you want to go?

Or does the thought of all those insanely howling barkers remind you too much of the average rock concert?

Music for dogs - how fabulously mad. Howling bonkers in fact...

Hi there,

actually this concert has already been held in 2010... check it out on Youtube (and many other places). Here's one URL for you:

Oops! Well, maybe they should organise a repeat concert. It sounds wonderful!
