Julian Schnabel’s ambitious film version of the 2006 Brooklyn performances of Lou Reed’s “Berlin” — the genesis for Matador’s double LP/CD release of ‘Berlin – Live At St. Ann’s Warehouse‘ — will be shown tonight (Friday, December 5) at the 92nd Street YMCA’s Hudson Street Screening Room as part of their 18 Nights Of Inspiration Series. Following the film, Lou Reed and producer Hal Wilner will field questions from the audience.
In addition, Lou can be seen being interviewed and performing alongside Elvis Costello on the latter’s new Sundance Channel chat program, “Spectacle“. The episode in question premies Wednesday, December 10 at 9pm eastern.

He's hammered, and he still manages to articulate in a concise manner what most right-thinking Irishers think of Pat Kenny.
