Pizza Underground

You may have already heard that former child actor Macaulay Culkin has a band called Pizza Underground who do pizza-themed rewrites of Velvet Underground / Lou Reed songs. The band posted an eight-minute medley including "I'm Beginning to Eat the Slice," "Pizza Day," "All the Pizza Parties" and "Take a Bite of the Wild Slice"...you get the idea. You can stream it below.

Pizza Underground are not just content to record demos in Macaulay Culkin's house. The band, which formed a year ago according to The Guardian, played a recent Lou Reed tribute at Sidewalk Cafe and will be playing a show this Friday (12/13) at Baby's All Right. It's a free show and happens at 7 PM. "Free pizza while supplies last."

The Pizza Underground demo/medley is below...

I have to admit it would've been pretty rad to make a shitload a money when I was a kid so I could spend the rest of my life not giving a fuck about anything

projectors will be displaying larger than life slides of Mila Kunis' lady parts upon the band as they play, to establish a hip, avant-garde atmosphere.

Can we all pitch in and get Laurie Anderson a frickin' lawyer already?

Posted by Anonymous | December 12, 2013 9:15 AM

634, yeah true, though I think it messed him up a lot, I think they changed the laws in NY bc his parents were basically stealing all his money. I guess he will be getting a nice bump in royalties bc home alone gets played a ton around this time of year?

@9:15 Laurie Anderson is rich.

This was so much better as a headline than in the execution. I was hoping for a least a chuckle but it's unlistenable.

This is a real slice of america. If they can meat the demand they will made some serious dough. We mead more stuff like this. He may be from the upper crust and there is no topping his work in home alone but he is thinking outside of the box. I'll bet his delivery will be spot on. This is just the tip of the iceberg for him.

9:44 I don't know, even if it messed him up a lot it's still a pretty rad way to live. Indulging your whims because you don't have to worry about anything else.

I did this last year with Pasta themed versions of Beatles songs "All You Need is Sauce" "Lucy in the Sky with Pasta" "Calamari Garden" "Marinara Fields Forever" but we didn't have a washed up kid star with a publicity rolodex the size of a brownstone and money to burn so it went nowhere.

2:51, he's "a" herb, not "an" herb. "Herb", the way you're using it at least, does not have a silent "h" -- you clearly did not grow up in Queens in the '90s.

I am going to go to this show and drink and ornage slice! I like this cheesy music. Hopefully after the show I will be able to de- flour my date. A few drinks and pizza should do the trick

Vincent Gallo should be their manager if he isn't already. This will complete the "reputation preceding talent" requirement of projects like this.

I have a soft spot for this kid and wish him back into the spotlight. Adam Sandler just nominated him for the ALS ice bucket challenge. haven't seen a video pop up... but I'm hoping one does.
