Lolabel the dog rocks out on the piano at benefit party

I did sound at a benefit show tonight for the Brad Hampton justice fund. Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed AND their dog all performed, along with some very special guests like John Zorn, Skuli Sverisson and poets Bob Currie and Anne Carson. Of course Laurie totally amazed, mesmerized and entertained guests with her incredible violin/electronica/spoken word performance which included a new piece she wrote for Brad himself. And of course Lou dominated and rocked the stage with his legendary songs, signature voice and powerful guitar sound. And of course all the guests were great too. But I think everyone would agree that Lolabel (or Lolabelle?) totally stole the show playing notes with both paws, doing chord changes on one of those keyboards with accompaniments and even playing bells and barking on the cue of her trainer.
A good evening amongst friends with great music and a festive spirit.
Please check out Brad Hampton’s work (he’s a painter) and read about his fund (you may donate as well!). He’s been hit with an unjust court ruling in favor of a sub-tentant of his who decided to quit paying rent and start unlawfully squatting in Brad’s place. Lots of crazy people out there!
