[MAGIC AND LOSS] For an inveterate New Yorker, Lou Reed—architect of indie cachet, art-school-trained rock’n’roll animal and prototypical genteel bohemian—held a special sway ’round Puddletown. This is shown by the arrestingly eclectic assemblage of performers gathering to pay homage, though cover nights are the sort of thing they gave up years ago. The Welfare State’s Eric Gregory (whose selections include “White Light/White Heat” and “Average Guy”) once fronted Velvet Underground tribute act Foggy Notion alongside super-producer Larry Crane. Between leading Karaoke From Hell and moving like Jagger for the Miss U’s, Voodoo Doughnut kingpin Tres Shannon has spent decades limning the legends. Alternatively, we’d expect roots luminaries Fernando (“Lisa Says,” “What Goes On”) and Michael Dean Damron to infuse their cuts with an aggressive Americana  and, if Kenny Feinstein (lately famed for a cranked string band version of My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless) decides to give Metal Machine Music the bluegrass treatment, the dearly departed might even crack a smile from beyond the veil.
