  12. Opening night fan event with Cinemark on Thursday 12/14 at 6pm. Half the seats (including the two I just bought) are gone at my local theater already.
  13. ....and I enjoy the Byrds much more as well. Where VU succeeded is opening up people’s minds to what music CAN be. Music can be different to each artist, and doesn’t need to be put into a commercially convenient box. Does that make them a great band? Not necessarily. But they were likely in the right place at the right time - when avant-garde went mainstream for about 30 seconds - and they were certainly influential.
  14. When I hear people talk about VU, the first question that comes into my mind is “which one?” Each iteration of the group (and each album) brought a little something different. In my opinion, John Cale was the revolutionary for VU more than Lou Reed. Cale brought the avant-garde sound, which was likely what caught Warhol’s ear (and let’s be honest, without Warhol, nobody outside of New York would have heard of VU). Cale studied under Aaron Copeland, but gravitated to (and worked with) a guy named John Cage who is a fascinating character that started a lot of this in the 30’s and 40’s. If you haven’t heard of him, you owe it to yourself to research for music history. One of those crazy/genius types that deserves his own movie.
  15. I'm numb this morning. This was 15 minutes from my home. I think I slept 30 minutes. I was getting updates from a lady that works for me - her kid is a cop that is stationed on the strip and he was giving her updates. I heard 20 had died when the media was saying it was only 2. And now 50 (probably a little higher). My friend was at that concert, but she made it out ok. I don't know if I am in shock or jaded to these events now. Either way, I don't feel right...
