KEXP Suggests Soul Poet: A Lou Reed Tribute at the Northwest Film Forum

KEXP Suggests

On Saturday, November 30th at 9:00 PM, the Northwest Film Forum will host a night for Seattle to remember and pay tribute to the legendary Lou Reed, who sadly passed away last month from liver disease. And NWFF is inviting you to participate in this one-night party by sending links of what you want to see on the screen:

Here's how it works: email us your favorite pieces of/about/with Lou (or post them on our Facebook event page) and we'll pick our favorites and project them at the event. (No more than 5-10 minutes long, please.) 

Think interviews, think live music, think words well-chosen, think memorable movie scene scores (think everything he stood for). 

To close out the night, local bands Kinski, Jesus Rehab, and Robert Roth will pay Lou his dues with live covers from the revolutionary’s extensive oeuvre. For more information, and to buy tickets, visit
