Loser’s Lounge paying tribute to Lou Reed at Joe’s Pub
Keyboardist extraordinaire Joe McGinty has been paying tribute to musical greats via Loser’s Lounge for over 20 years, originally at the Pink Pony, then at Fez (RIP) and then various other NYC venues before settling in at Joe’s Pub. Featuring a core group of stellar musicians and singers, LL features guest vocalists too (sometimes big names) and it’s usually a lot of fun.
In December the bi-monthly revue took on Harry Nilsson and in February they’ll pay tribute to the late Lou Reed with five shows over three nights, doing “all your favorites as they bring back the songs of Lou and the many members of the Velvets.” It begins on February 6 at Joe’s Pub with one show, and then February 7 & 8, both with early and late shows. Tickets are on sale now.
