Lou Reed Birthday Celebration with Mirrors/The New Lou Reeds

When: Sun., March 2, 9 p.m. 2014

Hey, it’s Lou Reed’s birthday! While he’s no long with us, there’s a party tonight at the Beachland celebrating the iconic artist’s special day, and local musicians Mirrors, Kevin Junior & Friends (ex Chamber Strings) and Rainy Day Saints will perform as a tribute to him. Born Lewis Allan Reed on March 2, 1942 in Freeport, Long Island, he fronted the Velvet Underground and later led an extensive solo career. While the Velvets didn’t receive very much commercial success during their time together, they gained increasing attention in the years since, garnering quite a following and proving to be very influential to many acts and artists of today. Reed underwent a liver transplant here in Cleveland last May, but unfortunately passed away five months later on October 27. (Trenholme)
