Lou Reed, Iggy & the Stooges + Mick Rock blue plaque in London

On July 14, 1971 Lou Reed, performed at the Scala Cinema in London. The day after that Iggy & the Stooges played up a storm at that same venue. Photographer Mick Rock was there for both nights and shot the pictures that would become iconic album covers. A blue plaque will be unveiled today to honor these events. Thurston Moore will be there to help out:

This Thursday July 14, 5:30pm at London’s Scala Cinema I’ll be helping in unveiling a blue plaque in honor of Lou Reed, Iggy & the Stooges + Mick Rock and the one-two punch of their game changing concerts there in 1972 as seen on the Raw Power and Transformer LP jackets. Bar open with Lou and Stooges music til 9pm. Gimme danger!
