‘Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson and John Zorn faced a furious crowd on Friday night, playing cacophonous music to a cacophony of boos at the Montreal International Jazz festival.

As audience members hollered their complaints, Zorn responded. “If you don’t think it’s music, then get the fuck outta here.”‘ (Guardian)
