members of Deerhunter, Television, Suicide, Luna & Fiery Furnaces perform w/ Warhol films this weekend
We posted this when it was first announced, but here’s a reminder about the three day event happening at the Brooklyn Academy of Music this weekend (11/6-11/8):
Part of 2014 Next Wave Festival
The Andy Warhol Museum and Dean Wareham
Featuring live performances by:
Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound)
Eleanor Friedberger (The Fiery Furnaces)
Martin Rev (Suicide)
Tom Verlaine (Television)
Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna)
The films of Andy Warhol are provocative milestones of underground cinema, flaunting convention simply by letting the gritty world be itself. They include a motionless eight-hour shot of the Empire State Building, a short of Lou Reed drinking a Coke, and erotic acts aplenty.
In Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films, curated by The Andy Warhol Museum, 15 never-before-seen, digitally restored selections from the 1960s are unveiled. Five artists representing a musical trajectory from the post-Velvet Underground 70s to today–Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna), Tom Verlaine (Television), Martin Rev (Suicide), Eleanor Friedberger (The Fiery Furnaces), and Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound)–perform live alongside Warhol’s celluloid oeuvre, featuring Marcel Duchamp, Edie Sedgwick, Donovan, Warhol himself, and others.
Tickets are available at BAM’s site.
Television also have some shows coming up.
Luna do too!
Martin Rev recently played with Zola Jesus.
