American treasure Lou Reed did a flawless set last night at The Whitney Museum. He told me, "It''s always fun to play a museum. When I was with Andy Warhol, we played hundreds of them".
Lou's set included, "Dirty Boulevard", "Romeo Had Juliet", "Guilty", "Who Am I", "Ecstasy" and "Power of the Heart." Check out www.loureed.com.
It's also always fun to visit a museum. The Whitney has up at the moment work from the collection. Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O'Keeffe, Willem de Kooning, Ed Ruscha and Jasper Johns, to name a few. Some Claes Oldenberg "Happenings" films, and a Photoconceptualism show with some great Bruce Naumans.
Also, an interesting project from Persol, the wonderful Italian sunglass makers. Marcello Mastroianni, Yves Montand and Marilyn Monroe wore them.
Very cool all around.
