The Reviews Are In: Bette’s A Hit!

Yoko Ono and All Star Friends Jam In Brooklyn
by David Marchese, Spin

During the career-spanning video montage that opened Tuesday night’s We Are Plastic Ono Band concert celebration of Yoko Ono at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, a quote from actress Ann Magnuson flashed on the screen: “There’s a reason the coolest guy in the world fell in love with her.”

And if the evening’s star-studded renditions of Ono’s songs wasn’t likely to win over those who aren’t already down with twisted avant-garde funk, resolutely childlike pop, and the guest of honor’s trademark warbling, wobbling, and shrieking vocalizing, the constant cries of “We Love You, Yoko” coming from audience suggested that those who are went home happy.

Live From BAM: Yoko Ono & Friends
By Jen Carlson in Arts and Events on February 17, 2010 12:12 PM

Last night BAM housed quite an insane lineup, all part of Yoko Ono’s We Are The Plastic Ono Band one-night-only concert.

Video: Bette Sings “Yes, I’m Your Angel” February 2010 (Thanks Julya)

I’ve just returned home from an interesting evening at the Plastic Ono Band concert in Brooklyn, NY. I’ve never heard Yoko‘s songs before so needless to say it was an unusual evening for me. The best news of all is that the place was crawling with professional video cameras. They made an announcement at the beginning that by being present at the show we were agreeing to allow ourselves to appear on film. Act One was all Yoko and her band.
