Listen to Lou Reed perform ‘Heroin’ live at the Orpheum in Boston on October 29, 1976

Thirty-seven years ago this Tuesday, the late Lou Reed performed live at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston as part of the Rock N Roll Heart tour. At the end of his 15-song set, he and his band closed with a saxophone-enhanced rendition of the Velvet Underground classic, “Heroin.”

It’s Sunday night.

Take it easy.

And spend the last 11 minutes of your day with this; let this song tuck you in bed before you go to sleep tonight.

Rest in peace, Lou. Thanks for the music.
