Richard Barone Talks About His Tribute Concert To Lou Reed At SXSW
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.07.2014



In an interview with Billboard, Richard Barone spoke about his SXSW tribute concert to Lou Reed, which he curated with Alejandro Escovedo . It takes place on March 14 at Austin's Paramount Theatre. It features 22 acts including Spandau Ballet, Lucinda Williams, Suzanne Vega, Sean Lennon, the Fleshtones, the Black Lips, Garland Jeffreys, Bobby Bare Jr., the Baseball Project, Louise Goffin, Rosie Flores, MC5 alumnus Wayne Kramer, Jesse Malin, Chuck Prophet, Cindy Lee Berryhill, Cheetah Chrome, Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3, drag queen Sharon Needles, Joe Dallesandro, the Fauntleroys, the Bizarros and more who will be announced later. The house band will include Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Patti Smith Group members Lenny Kaye and Tony Shanahan, Voidods guitarist Ivan Julian and Escovedo string players Brian Stadefer and Susan Voelz. Here are highlights:

On why he's doing the tribute concert: "This just seemed to be the right thing for me to do this time. I've known Lou since 1977, '78, and since he passed it's somebody who I really miss. He was somebody I was always in touch with. I always ran my stuff by him. He always heard it first. He was always supportive to artists and fellow musicians -- there were so many artists you could ask and they'd tell you about that. So this is going to be a very special event, I think."

On the lineup: "We're really proud of the lineup. Alejandro and I kind of cast it like a movie or a play, a 'What about this (song) for that person?' kind of thing. About half the artists, like Suzanne Vega and Garland Jeffreys, already had songs of Lou's they've been doing. Lucinda Williams recorded one of Lou's songs for her next album, so she'll be doing that, and I've got 'All Tomorrow's Parties.'"

On the tone of the show: "We want this to be the experience of being in a room with people who like Lou Reed and his music. Alejandro and I are trying to create a kind of Austin meets New York street vibe with a lot of South By Southwest mixed in. We'll cover all aspects of Lou's music."
