Take a curator-led tour of the Lou Reed: Caught Between the Twisted Stars exhibit and a demonstration of the Listening Room at the Library for the Performing Arts

Highlights of the tour include:

  • Demo tapes that include never-before-heard recordings of well known songs found after Lou Reed died
  • Lou Reed’s own record collection.
  • A selection of other rare items that unearth the history and legacy of Lou Reed, the Velvet Underground, and the myriad of music movements that Lou Reed kicked off

About the event:

Lou Reed: Caught Between the Twisted Stars, taken from a lyric from “Romeo Had Juliette” from Reed’s solo album, New York, will present previously unseen and unheard work of a prolific and uncompromising artist—songwriter, musician, performer, poet, photographer, and tai chi practitioner. The story is told through the voices, images, and music of Reed’s music projects; through his performances and theatre works; the articles, books, and poems that he
authored; his own photography; and his personal tai chi studies.

The show will pay tribute to the many friends and collaborators whom he influenced and who, in turn, shaped his own music.
