LAist @ Sundance 2011: Lou Reed, 01/23/11
Rock and Roll hall of famer and former Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed performed at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival's "Celebration of Music in Film." Only 300 or so lucky attendees were let in, some of whom waited in 20 degree temperatures for as long as two hours. Those who did make it in were treated to a set of nine songs with about half coming from the Velvet Underground catalog.
