Lou Reed Concert New York

If you've got $85, you can see Lou Reed at a new venue owned by the the owner of B.B. King's Blues Club. Wait, it's not B.B. King? Anyway, here are the details:

"The HighLine Ballroom, a new performance space in New York's meat-packing district on 16th Street (between Ninth and 10th avenues), will open April 30 with a concert by Lou Reed.

The first month at the HighLine Ballroom will feature performances by Mos Def, Amy Winehouse, Jonatha Brooke, Spank Rock, Meshell Ndegeocello, Talib Kweli, moe., and Disco Biscuits.

Inspired by the aesthetics of High Line Park, the HighLine Ballroom features a minimal industrial decor providing open sightlines of the stage from every area within the club. Outfitted with a state-of-the-art sound system and lighting, digital sound boards and what's billed as the largest stage in the city for a club of comparable size, the 700-capacity venue will book bands at all levels."

If you're worried about the cost, you'll feel better knowing that 25 cents will go to the Friends of the High Line, the "nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and reuse of the High Line elevated rail structure."

Uh, that's okay. I'll watch the fun from across the street at the Redrock West Saloon.
