(Newser) – American musician Lou Reed and his wife, performance artist Laurie Anderson, are planning an "inter-species social gathering"—otherwise known as a concert for dogs. Yes, a dog concert. The show, aptly titled Music for Dogs, will be held outside the Sydney Opera House in June and will feature "high-frequency music" composed for canine ears, reports the BBC. Humans, sadly, won't hear much.

The recital, which will last only 20 minutes because "dogs don't have a giant concentration span," won't be the couple's first stab at animal entertainment. They already make sweet, sweet music for their rat terrier, Lollabelle. "She likes things with a lot of smoothness but with beats in them,'' Anderson says. And you thought cat people were crazy.
