While Laurie Anderson's music works well enough on its own terms, her 1986 concert film Home of the Brave (which she directed herself) makes it clear that her work is better served when you can see her performing it. While Anderson isn't exactly playing to the cheap seats most of the time, she's a far more accessible and engaging performer than most folks involved in "performance art" (and watching this film makes it clear that, while music is the core, performance art is indeed what Anderson is doing – the dancing, storytelling, and visual constructs are as much a part of the presentation as the musicians).

Anderson's jerky yet graceful dance moves are as expressive as her vocals (and while she's not a singer in the conventional sense, her vocals are quite good), her jokes are funny and have a point, and she brings her band into the performance in a manner that's at once democratic and fun to watch. And if you just want to enjoy this as a music video, it's a smart and well-crafted one, crisply shot and featuring a very good band (which includes guitarist Adrian Belew and percussionist David Van Tiegham). In short, you don't have to know much about art to enjoy Home of the Brave.
