Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Velvet Underground’s Philadelphia debut! Step into history and reminisce about the culture of the ’60s with live music and the chance to dress in your ’60s best.Enjoy a performance by the legendary Yo La Tengo, who portrayed the Velvet Underground in the film, I Shot Andy Warhol, and whose uninterrupted 32-year career is unparalleled in its creative breadth. Their set will pay homage to the concert that took place on the same stage nearly 50 years prior to the day. And experience 13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, which features a selection of Warhol’s four-minute silent film portraits with commissioned soundtracks performed by Dean Wareham & Britta Phillips, formerly of Luna and Galaxie 500.
Just like that happening 50 years ago, this will be a night to remember! We can’t wait to host all of our ticket-buyers, coming from across the country and beyond, for this momentous night. The enthusiasm and excitement behind this event has been thrilling – WE’RE SOLD OUT!
