Take A Walk For The Wild Rice

APRIL 22--When Lou Reed performs with his wife Laurie Anderson, the avant-garde composer, the couple gives concert promoters a very detailed food shopping list, so that 'we are not left eating hamburgers or tuna each day.'

A copy of the Reed/Anderson 2009 catering rider can be found here.

While gofers in New York might be able to find most of the items on the list, it would probably be difficult for a production assistant in Tulsa or Boise to source that organic lamb, guava melon, or 'LOCAL ORGANIC White Fish.' (2 pages)
