Chatting with the Legendary Laurie Anderson #MusicMonday
Sometimes when you’re walking around New York, you see Laurie Anderson. Laurie Anderson is a legendary musician and performance artist known for her technological innovation. She pushed the boundaries of music, and with her hit “O Superman” brought electronic experimentation to new audiences. And she walks around SoHo. And whenever we see her, we always want to quote her song “Talk Normal”: “I turned the corner in Soho today and someone / Looked right at me and said: / Oh No! Another Laurie Anderson clone!”
