Put this down in your calendars as the most epic event to ever occur in December: former Velvet Underground members Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Doug Yule will appear together at the New York Public Library on December 8, along with journalist David Fricke, as part of the "LIVE from the NYPL" series. The reunion partly celebrates the release of The Velvet Underground: New York Art, a book of unreleased photographs, band-related artwork by Andy Warhol, press clippings, and Reed's handwritten lyrics and music, amongst other amazing VU memorabilia.
The event will be held at the Celeste Bartos Forum in the Public Library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 5th Avenue and 42nd Street. General admission tickets are $25, and $15 tickets are available for library donors, students and seniors on the NYPL website.
Far be it from me to quote Rachel Zoe, whose raisin-y face I fear and detest, but there can be no more apt saying than this: I die. (via Billboard)
