Lou Reed hosts concert for dogs in Sydney

It looks like Lou Reed truly took a walk on the wild side. BBC News reports that the iconic crooner tried to help animals this weekend by organizing a concert geared towards a surprising audience - canines.

The "high-frequency" show, which was held in Australia outside the Sydney Opera House, was mostly inaudible for the human ears. However, it was the little pooches who got a kick out of the barely-there tunes.

The event was billed as "an inter-species social gathering on a scale never seen before in Australia," according to the news source.

And while Reed's plan to help animals may seem cuckoo, the singer's wife admits that their rat terrier, Lollabelle, is his number one furry fan.

"She likes things with a lot of smoothness but with beats in them,'' Anderson told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Although Reed had the best of intentions, not all pups enjoy listening to the strum of a guitar. In fact, Scientific American reports that dogs can detect frequencies as fine as one-third of an octave, while humans can understand one-twelfth.ADNFCR-2796-ID-19823345-ADNFCR
