loureedlolla @AndyShore Rules and regulations such as set times don’t apply to Lou Reed. The man is a rock star. Plus, it gave me time to meet some of the crazies up front. One 30-year-old woman, with silver-ish face paint and black lipstick, told me of her albino rat named after Lou Reed. She also claimed to have lived the exact same life as him, except she was never famous. By the time Reed took the stage, she had also asked me her chances at getting the CDs she brought signed and what the set list was.

 

Playing “Sweet Jane” right off the bat was as good a way as any to make the crowd forget you were late to the stage. Reed commanded the stage despite some obvious technical difficulties. Leaving the photo pit, I headed for a seat on the handicapped platform. The crowd was dancing and singing along to every song. Reed pushed past his ending time, well into when Band of Horses was supposed to take the stage across the way. It was almost 20 minutes past his end time when Lou Reed and company went into “Walk on the Wild Side.” I sang along to the rest of the song as I headed over to Perry’s stage to catch a bit of MSTRKRFT on my way to the Killers.

    this makes me wish i had gone to lou instead of snoop, seeing this set list :( i know the choice seems obvious, that i should’ve chosen lou over snoop, but snoop was a blast. this set list could’ve changed my mind though :(
