Laura Kennedy memorial - Bowery Electric 12.28.11

Laura Kennedy RIP
As mentioned several times here, last night saw the NYC memorial for the Bush Tetras' Laura Kennedy at the Bowery Electric. It was a casual but touching affair which saw tributes from friends like former Mudd Club doorman Richard Boch, and writer Linda Yablonsky, as well as fine mini-sets from the Bush Tetras themselves (with longtime member Julia Murphy on bass), BT drummer Dee Pop's other band - the free jamming Radio I-Ching, Band of Outsiders, and Jean Caffeine. Beautiful black & white photos, like the one above were shown on a giant screen - many of them by Lisa Genet, and several by Laura Levine. DJ Delphine Blue spun some fine tunes throughout the evening, and the whole night was topped off with a couple of songs by Lenny Kaye.

Overall, a beautiful tribute to someone who meant a whole lot to all whom she met, and then some! Read a nice review by Weasel Walter here.
