Remembering Lou Reed's Buffalo performances

Lou-reed-sized
Lou Reed didn't play Buffalo very often, but two shows in our area have become the stuff of legend over the years. In fact, it seems that more people claim to have been at these two shows than could actually have fit in the venues at the time. (This is a lot like Nirvana's  November 5th, 1993 appearance at UB's Alumni Arena,  which, apparently, everyone I've ever met in Buffalo attended. LOL.) 

Reed performed at the New Century Theatre in Buffalo on May 9th, 1975. He was back a few years later for an April 28th, 1978 show in the gym at Buffalo State College. Here are the setlists from both shows.
