Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

Jul 26, 2019

So I've been doing the show for four years now. FOUR YEARS. Hundred of shows, thousands of songs, dozens of countries... hopefully you've found things you like, and continue to do so. Please please please drop me an email or send me a message on Twitter letting me know you like the show, what you want more of, what you think I should be playing, etc. Just knowing it's connecting with people all around the world means everything to me. Four more years! Four more years! (Also, Impeach Trump Now!)

There are a lot of songwriters out there with large bodies of work, but not a lot as openly honest and street level as Lou Reed (1942-2013). Lou passed away before I started the show, so I never got to do an RIP show for him, but I think the scene shows I used to do can be filled with overview shows every now and then, so I wanted to start that tradition by giving you one on Lou Reed, who wrote the first song I ever remember hearing in my life, "Heroin." 

As with all scene shows, it runs a bit longer (about 3 hours), and features a bit more of me talking, so if that's not your bag, we'll see you next week. For the rest of you, let's spend three hours talking about the street poet of NYC, Lou Reed, and the Velvet Underground.

Over the 3 hours, we'll cover the Velvets (with and without Nico), Lou's relationship with Andy Warhol, his relationship with a transgender woman named Rachel, the utter FU that is "Metal Machine Music," the rediscovery of Lou's work in the late 80s, the brief revival of the Velvets, his resurgence in the 90s, the mostly quiet aughts, and the final record he made with Metallica, "Lulu," that a bunch of people don't like, but me and David Bowie both love.

Still miss ya, Lou.
