Lou Reed and Pete Townshend at Joe's Pub: "Pale Blue Eyes"

Wow. Go here to see Lou Reed and Pete Townshend singing "Pale Blue Eyes." It's funny, but I don't think of those two occupying the same universe, and yet they clearly do. The universe of Advancement.

A friend of a friend was working at this show and apparently Lou Reed was wandering around and walked up to her and said "Hi, I'm Lou Reed".

I'm jealous! I used to see him and Laurie Anderson (and their dog) having coffee at this little place in the West Village that was on the way to my old job. I always wanted to interrupt him so he would be mean to me, but I never did.

as i waited through all the other artists i didn't care about i almost quit waiting, but when lou came out i knew it was worth it. from him not saying anything at all before starting the first song, the advanced vocal rephrasing throughout (especially great in "money is like us in time" verse), just superb stuff, really.
