The John Cale concerts at BAM are coming up where he'll perform The Velvet Underground & Nico (November 16 & 17), as well as a special 75th Birthday concert (November 18). At all three shows he'll be backed by Dustn Boyer (guitars), Deantoni Parks (drums), and Joey Maramba (bass), and helping him celebrate will be a seriously impressive group of guests: Animal Collective, MGMT, Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio), Connan Mockassin, Caroline Polachek (Chairlift), Thee Oh Sees, Kurt Vile, and Sky Ferreira.

The two Velvet Underground & Nico shows are sold out but you can still get tickets for the 11/18 75th Birthday show.
