Together since 1995, Laurie Anderson and the ubiquitous Lou Reed finally tied the knot in April 2008. During their domestic partnership, they have collaborated on record, but they rarely have performed live as a duo. This month they have been curating the calendar at the Stone, with free open houses every Sunday. On February 15, the longtime couple will take the stage for two special shows, at 8:00 and 10:00, with Buke and Gass (Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez) opening up. Admission is forty bucks, and if you're wondering why it isn't sold out, that's because the Stone sells no tickets in advance, only at the door the night of the performance. But get ready for some very long lines. Anderson will be back February 23 playing with guitar legend Fred Frith; other highlights through the month include Marc Ribot on February 17, Rob Wasserman on February 18, A. M. Homes on February 22, Greg Cohen on February 24, and Ryuichi Sakamoto on February 26.
