FILM | Lou Reed Double Feature 

Lakeshore Records' Alternative Music Film Series continues this week with a double feature to honor rock legend Lou Reed, who died in late 2013. On Friday, January 17, the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave.) will host a screening of "The Making of 'Transformer,'" and bonus retrospective "Lou Reed Remembered."

In "The Making of 'Transformer,'" Reed reminisces about how the album came together, and collaborating musicians such as Herbie Flowers and David Bowie make appearances. "Lou Reed Remembered" brings together Reed's friends, fellow musicians, critics, and those influenced by his musical and contrarian style to discuss how Reed helped to shape a generation and create an alternative, independent rock scene.

The event kicks off at 6 p.m. with cocktails in the Gallery Atrium, and the screening will commence at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. Tickets are $10 at the door (cash only). Seating is limited to 290, so arrive early. For more information, call Lakeshore Record Exchange at 244-8476, visit, or call the MAG Events Office, at 276-8950 or email at
