I went to the Laurie Anderson show last night in Toronto. I seriously didn't want to
and was praying for a cancelled show. I ended up enjoying it fully. Art really can heal. She began the
show by dedicating the music to "everyone who died Tuesday, freedom and sanity."
Strangely, many of her songs make reference to airplanes and fire. Spookiest moment of the night: during her signature song "O Superman," the lines "Here come the planes. They're American planes, made by Americans." Read the lyrics - the song is loaded with eerie references.
