Lou Reed & Moby Perform “Walk On The Wild Side”

At different times and for different reasons, everybody in Austin seemed to be talking about Lou Reed and Moby this year: It was Lou’s year to be honored with keynote speaker status, and the FADER Fort hosted its own version of a tribute, calling Mark Kozelek, My Morning Jacket, Yo La Tengo, and others to cover Lou’s tunes to free-liquor fed, dinner-skipping crowd. As for Moby, well like we said, he’s newly resurgent, our DJ friends’ consensus pick for Most Improved Player.

Anyway about that Lou Reed tribute: We brought you the pics a few days ago, but now the FADER folks have upped Lou’s only performance: fittingly, a duet with fellow South By buzz boy Moby on one of those Reed tunes every single person in the audience was sure to know.
