    Laurie Anderson to Perform Free Show in New York City for Lincoln Center Out of Doors
    Tim Knox

    Laurie Anderson gives a free performance at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park Bandshell in New York City this evening as part of the Lincoln Center Out of Doors series. Anderson will be joined for the performance by frequent collaborators multi-instrumentalist Rob Burger and violist Eyvind Kang, both of whom perform on her latest album, Homeland, released last year on Nonesuch.

    Tonight's concert also features a debut pairing from fiddler/composer Todd Reynolds with Carolina Chocolate Drops beat boxer Adam Matta, Sxip Shirey of the Luminescent Orchestrii, with whom the Chocolate Drops released an EP on Nonesuch earlier this year, and a string section.

    "Often imitated but never duplicated, Anderson is the beatific mother of downtown avant-garde performance art," writes the Village Voice's Aidan Levy in a preview of tonight's event. "She practices the dying art of enchantment, insidiously propagating a politically charged message through trance-inducing electronic mantras." Levy goes on to describe Homeland as "a blissfully sardonic, subversive diatribe against suburban hypocrisy and political posturing, particularly relevant during this summer heat wave of Washington fisticuffs."

    Time Out New York chooses the Lincoln Center show as a critics' pick.

    For further details on this evening's performance, go to lcoutofdoors.org. To pick up a copy of the Homeland CD/DVD and the Carolina Chocolate Drops / Luminescent Orchestrii EP on vinyl or CD, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the music.
