A large crowd congregated at New York City’s Lincoln Center yesterday (Nov. 14) to pay tribute to Lou Reed.

The Brooklyn-born icon, who passed away on Oct. 27 after battling liver disease, was memorialized in a gathering that included his widow, performing artist Laurie Anderson, composer Philip Glass and Reed collaborator Hall Willner, among other contemporaries of the singer-songwriter.

According to Spin, the gathering was only announced on Facebook a day prior to the event, which lasted three hours. Although there were no performances or speeches, a set of loudspeakers did blast Reed’s music, including some of his infamously difficult ‘Metal Machine Music’ album.
