This afternoon is the big public memorial to Lou Reed, who died at the end of October of liver failure at the age of 71. As promised, there are no speeches or live performances—but widow Laurie Anderson is at Lincoln Center talking to fans and listening to loud speakers blasting Reed classics including "Candy Says," "Heroin," "Vicious" and "Beginning To See The Light." And there are even little girls dancing to "Venus In Furs"! Click through to see lots of photos and videos of the event.

For some more Reed goodness, Dangerous Minds dug up the below video that details the making of Reed's classic glam solo album, Transformer.
