Laurie Anderson Playing Concert for Dogs in Times Square Tonight
Laurie Anderson is throwing four-legged live music fans a bone tonight (Jan. 4) in Times Square as part of the Midnight Moment art series. The musician/performance artist will perform a concert consisting of low-frequency sounds audible primarily to canine ears starting at 11:30 p.m. ET at the red steps of Duffy Square, according to The New York Times. For the curious human, 350 pairs of headphones will be on hand to hear the show. Back in 2010, Anderson performed a similar dog-centric concert in Sydney.
In addition to music, Anderson will also screen a three-minute edit of her 2015 documentary Heart of a Dog, starring Lolabelle, the now-deceased rat terrier she and the late Lou Reed lived with. The meditative art film should prove to be a bark contrast to the slew of advertising we're used to seeing in Times Square.
As for the musical portion, no word whether Anderson will perform recent music or break out some of the more dog-eared numbers in her repertoire. Either way, it sounds fetching enough that New Yorkers should consider taking paws and making the midnight trip to Times Square tonight.
