Buke & Gass & Lou & Laurie NYC love-in & a European tour

The day after Valentine's Day, Buke & Gass shared a bill with the legendary Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson at The Stone in New York City, a club originated by John Zorn. Call it a four-way-love-in, maybe? It was definitely an passionate experience for their ears! And no we're not using any gross sexual innuendos here, nor are we going to talk about what kind of love Lou Reed was into in the 1970s, so don't even think about it.

A few days after their run-in with Lou & Laurie, Buke and Gass headed to Europe for their first cross-Atlantic shows since opening a few dates for The National last May. They've just completed participating in the multi-day Cross-Linx Festival in the Netherlands (curated by The National and featuring friends of ours like Victoire, Sharon Van Etten, and Owen Pallett). Afterwards they've stuck around with Owen Pallett for a few more shows. If you are in Luxembourg or Belgium you can still catch 'em.

If you do, please let them go! They have more shows to play in other cities! Now for some pictures from The Stone via Brooklyn Vegan:
