When talking music, the term “Americana” conjures an image of pickers and grinners. But in the broadest sense, Americana refers to artifacts relating to the culture, folklore, geography and history of the grand ol' USA. Few Americans would as readily associate Lou Reed with stars and stripes as say, Bruce Springsteen. Yet Reed was born in Brooklyn and raised in Long Island. The swaggering, subversive figure he cut and his diverse discography speak volumes about modern US culture. The New Mexico Americana Society is hosting a Lou Reed tribute featuring local, female musicians at ArtBar by Catylyst Club (119 Gold SW) on Thursday, March 27. The 21-plus showcase features Rennie Sparks (The Handsome Family), Meredith Wilder (Wildewood), Sage Harrington (Sage and Jared's Happy Gland Band) and Peri Pakroo (Peri and the FAQs). It starts at 7pm, and tickets are $5 to $10. Will Rennie perform selections from Metal Machine Music? If you go, you’ll know.
