It's nights like tonight that you get completely swept away by a city like Missoula. It's not every day that you get a group of adults, with varying ages and backgrounds, together in a room to celebrate the life and music of an old school rock star.

But that's exactly what went down tonight. Around 50 Missoulians packed the Union Club Bar & Grill and paid tribute to one of music's best, Lou Reed. It was a night we won't soon forget!

Lou Reed was a dear friend to my boss/General Manager Scott Richman. Because this event was such an awesome success, we will most likely make it an annual thing. If you would like to be apart of any future events, please feel free to reach out to Scott at!

Happy 75th Birthday Lou Reed!
