Laurie Anderson: Market Street Cinema, San Francisco CA

Michael Goldberg, Musician, March 1982

LAURIE ANDERSON looked like some kind of punk mystic as she stood on the stage of the Market Street Cinema in San Francisco. Her brown hair was cut short and spikey a la Johnny Rotten. She had on a black silk jacket, a man's black dress shirt, black tie, baggy black pants and black shoes. There was a faraway look in her eyes.
