Last July, violinist and multimedia performance artist Laurie Anderson played an intimate show at (le) poisson rouge in support of her most recent album, Homeland (Nonesuch, July 2010), joined by Material’s Bill Laswell on bass, Rob Burger on keyboards and accordion, and Antibalas’s Colin Stetson on various saxes and other brass instruments. Anderson and Laswell, who have been playing together in myriad conglomerations since the mid-1980s, will team up yet again on June 30 at Castle Clinton for a free outdoor concert consisting of improvised beats and melodies that should be fascinating, liable to go off in any number of directions. Free tickets will be given out starting at 5:00 for the 7:00 show.
