Allen Ginsberg

As previously mentioned, Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson curated February at the Stone. Along with daily shows by many notables, every Sunday in February, including today (the Superbowl one), is an open house.

EVERY SUNDAY IN FEBRUARY--STONE OPEN HOUSE
Laurie Anderson and Anna Brenner invite you to Stone Open House.
FEEL FREE TO COME IN ANY TIME BETWEEN 3 AND 10PM
From the practical to the theoretical, SOH will be a place to hang out, drink great coffee, read, listen to unusual presentations and invent alternative ways to live and work. Part think tank, part party, SOH will host a series of presentations that cover a wide range of topics- from the history of boilers to teaching music to dogs. In cooperation with Housing Works Book store, SOH will present a library of must-read books for people interested in expanding in unpredictable ways.
Today looks like this:
2/6 Sunday (KM)
OPEN FROM 3PM TO 10PM
Scheduled Lectures:
4:00 PM--Eyvind Kang: Mood, Being, Acoustic Image (a workshop for bowed strings to which all are welcome, bowed string players should bring instruments!)
6:00 PM--Erik Ehn: Writing is breaking / Writing about genocide
8:00 PM--Roma Baran: Suddenly Jewish
Admission to the Open House is FREE. A TEN DOLLAR fee will be collected from those attending each lecture.
One recent addition to the schedule includes "Hal Willner and Philip Glass perform for Allen Ginsberg on 2/22 - Hal Willner (reading) Philip Glass (piano)." Lou and Laurie play with Buke and Gass on 2/15.

"8:00 PM--Roma Baran: Suddenly Jewish

Ha ha... It's all free but the Suddenly Jewish lecture is $10. Thank you for leaving the door wide open for ridicule.

"Thank you for leaving the door wide open for ridicule."

Actually, sorry to burst your bubble bigoted moron at 2:53, but $10 is the cost of any of the three lectures listed, not just the 8pm one. You can enter the open house at the venue for free and hang out, but any of the lectures cost money

Lou Reed + Laurie Anderson + John Zorn = Noise Disguised as Art. Don't fall for the hype unless you like the sound of a 2 year old banging on a piano.

This actually seems like a shittier time than the watching the super bowl.

The History of Boilers?! Laurie Anderson as "curator"?!? Are you fucking kidding me?

Lou Reed + Laurie Anderson + John Zorn = Living Legends. Don't disrespect your elders unless you feel like sounding like a 2 year old.

Doesn't Lou realize people do not want to hear this crap...

@6:30 I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Lou Reed does not give a fuck what other people think. Case and point: everything and anything he's ever done.

What crap do you mean anyway?

Lou Reed may be a legend. Laurie Anderson and John Zorn are frauds. I have seen the 3 play at the Stone in the past. THE WORST PERFORMANCE I HAVE EVER SEEN. Either I don't get it, or people think they are so hip that they fake enjoying plain old noise.

3:24 and 5:27, you don't get it and you shouldn't even be posting. You don't know anything. So Shut UP.

Oh, get over yourselves people. If he doesn't like it, he doesn't like it.

This comment section reads like a meeting of pretentious art students who buy their clothes from thrift stores, listen to Joy Division, and try to style their hair like Robert Smith from The Cure.
