The Lou Reed tributes keep coming. Two of them just happened, including the one at Rodeo Bar on Wednesday (11/20) and the one with Jeffrey Lewis, Dawn Landes, and others at the Jalopy Theatre last night (11/21). Now there will be another one at Bowery Electric this Sunday (11/24).
The show features a pretty big lineup, including no wave legend Arto Lindsay, Voidoids guitarist Ivan Julian, Patti Smith Band guitarist Lenny Kaye, TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe, Lou Reed/Laurie Anderson/Marc Ribot collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, Light Asylum's Shannon Funchess, Grooms' Travis Johnson, People Get Ready's Steven Reker, The Vaccines' Justin Hayward-Young, Caged Animals, Drowners, Jeffrey Lewis, Kirin J. Callinan, Phantom Family Halo, Sam Mickens, and more, plus Hollis Brown performing VU's Loaded in its entirety.
Tickets for the show are on sale now, and all proceeds will benefit the Ali Forney Center, an organization "that works to protect LGBT youth from the harm of homelessness in the city." There will also be a pre-Thanksgiving food drive for Food Bank of NYC at the venue that night.
