Yo La Tengo and Dean & Britta playing Velvet Underground tribute in Philly; Britta Phillips playing Le Poisson Rouge

Yo La Tengo @ Kings Theatre 2015 (more by PSquared)

Yo La Tengo and Dean & Britta are playing a tribute to the Velvet Underground at Philadelphia’s Gershman Y on December 15. It’s to mark the 50th anniversary of The Velvet Underground’s Philadelphia live debut. Both acts have strong VU connections besides the sonic debt in their music: Yo La Tengo played The Velvet Underground in I Shot Andy Warhol, and Dean & Britta paid tribute on their LP 13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests. Tickets are on sale now.

Meanwhile, Britta Phillips will play NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge on September 28 where she’ll perform her solo debut, Luck or Magic. Helping her out will be hubby Dean Wareham and Idgy Dean. Tickets for Britta (and Dean and Dean) are on sale now.

Dean and Britta are also part of Luna who will play two sold-out shows at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade in October.
