On Friday night, Laurie Anderson performed her new solo show Dirtday! Antony’s Meltdown festival. Among the many highlights of the 60-year-old New York electronic musician’s show were musings on the quality of dreams and the nature of death, some beautiful violin-playing and clips of her rat terrier Lolabelle, who was taught to play music. Here are four videos of this dog performing at art spaces and house shows.
And for a reminder of how good Lollabelle’s owner is, here’s O Superman, her minimal masterstroke which (astonishingly) hit #2 in 1981.
