Music legend Lou Reed will be playing a two night stand (Thursday, April 23rd and Friday, April 24th) at New York City's Blender Theatre at Gramercy as part of the Metal Machine Trio.
In other words, leave your "Sweet Jane" swaying moves at home and get ready to rock!
The Metal Machine Trio is Lou on guitar and electronics, Ulrich Krieger on tenor sax and live electronics and Sarth Calhoun on live processing and Fingerboard Continuum.
Word is that Reed is going to be extremely loose set list-wise so if you're a Lou fan, be sure to scoop up tix for both shows since they'll be completely different.
And about those tickets - here's some good news for younger fans who refuse to let a little thing like the recession stand in the way of a night (or two) of live music appreciation - students get in HALF-PRICE with a valid Student ID when purchased at the Blender Theatre or Irving Plaza box offices!
For the rest of us non-student types, pick up your tix at http://www.livenation.com/artist/metal-machine-trio-tickets.
