“Not even kidding. lou reed watched @dasracist perform tonight & flipped the fuck out. at carnegie hall. how was your night?” – El-P

“The night wrapped up with Lenny Kaye leading the Patti Smith band through a brief tribute to the garage-rock compilation Nuggets, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and Lou Reed, who performed three songs. Reed conducted the string quartet and the drummer to improvise with him at moments, which felt awkward in the beginning; the ending, however–as the string quartet jammed in tandem with Smith’s guitarists and Reed himself–was pretty impressive. At the very end Laurie Anderson and the whole evening’s cast returned to the stage for a curtain call, during which the room sang “Happy Birthday” to Philip Glass.” [Village Voice]
