A special tribute to the diversity of Lou Reed’s music will be hosted at SXSW, a festival known for its unique international cross-section of artists
Rock legend of the Velvet Underground, Lou Reed passed away on October 27, 2013.

The event will be held at the historic Paramount Theatre (713 Congress Ave) on Friday, March 14 from 7:30 PM until midnight.
