I really don't know where to begin. Good lord. I'll try my best to be articulate, and start...er...at the beginning.
My mother and I got there horrendously early and spent an hour wandering through the Apollo, people-watching. Most of the people there were couples in their forties or fifties, although there were the occasional family with young children, which was quite cool. Maybe the parents just couldn't get babysitters or something, but even so. I wish I could say my first gig was Lou Reed. Instead it was Busted, which was, funnily enough, also at the Apollo (back in 2003). Oh, how I've grown up!
There was also one, solitary transvestite (yeah, I know - only one? - this is Lou Reed we're talking about, here....) who looked rather lonely. :(
Once they actually let us through to our seats, there was more hanging around, while they played Lou Reed's eighteen minute long Like a Possum. As much as I love Lou, that song does drag on a little. …

By the Time I Get to Phoenix
Sad Song, or indeed anything from Berlin
Racing in the Street
I'm So Young
Sure I can think of some more, but that's enough sadness for now!
