Lou Reed: A Life

An Evening of Songs and Reflections with Anthony DeCurtis, Richard Barone, Jeff Ross and Suzanne Vega

Beginning with his genre-shattering work with the Velvet Underground and extending through a long, provocative solo career, Lou Reed has earned a place as one of the most significant artists and songwriters in the history of rock ’n’ roll.

Now renowned music writer Anthony DeCurtis shares insights from his new book, Lou Reed: A Life, a riveting, comprehensive biography of a man whose life was every bit as harrowing and experimental as his greatest work. Musicians Richard Barone, Jeff Ross, and Suzanne Vega will perform his indelible music, and join DeCurtis for a riveting discussion about Reed’s lasting impact near the fourth anniversary of his death.

A book signing will follow.
