I went to a free concert on the Opera House steps on the weekend. The billing was very strange: Laurie Anderson (and possibly her partner Lou Reed) were giving a concert on the opera house steps for dogs. Thousands of dogs. It was billed as inaudible to the owners – and I could not tell whether Lou Reed was having us on. After Lou Reed brushed off the Metal Machine Trio for an impressively loud show in the concert hall (earplugs supplied) – and he was going from something you could not listen to to something you could not hear.
I was pleasantly surprised. Dogs and family loved it. Lou Reed did not appear but milled around the audience allowing this ridiculous photo of your blogger and his designer mongrel:
Lets call it a Walk on the Wild Side.
Seriously though – how could I resist a connection – any connection – with the Velvet Underground and one of my favorite albums.
