Laurie Anderson performed several songs, such as Only an Expert Can Deal With the Problem, and told stories, such as how one time here in Texas, the NRA campaigned to get women to carry handguns in their purses for self-protection. And Gov. Ann Richards said, "Now, I'm no sexist, but there is no woman in Texas who could find a handgun in her purse." The audience laughed.
Laurie played her electronic violin and a synth, and she was accompanied by three other musicians, playing cello, bass guitar and keyboard. It was a more somber, less showy production than previous performances. There were no films or slides projected on the screen behind her. But she did use her low-pitched Voice of Authority a few times, and at one point she put on her glasses with contact microphone and played her head like a drum.
At the end of the show, she and the other musicians stood up and took a few bows, left the stage, and then Laurie came back out for an encore and played a solo on her synth violin.
Then I returned to my car and tried to figure out how to get on the freeway. I didn't manage it and just drove Main Street all the way home. I hate going downtown! :}
