Robert Forster plays The Velvet Underground
During the run of Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms there are a wide variety of events that complement the exhibition including symposia, performances, films, and community days, to name a few.
Celebrate the opening weekend of Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms with this special event spotlighting the music of art-rock legends the Velvet Underground—a band Warhol produced and championed.
You’ll hear timeless Velvets’ classics performed by Robert Forster, one of the founders of revered Aussie indie band The Go-Betweens. We’re one of only two venues in this country to host Forster’s tribute concert, which he originally performed with his band at a Warhol exhibition in Queensland. (The other venue is Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum.) Forster and his excellent combo rip into "I’m Waiting for My Man," "All Tomorrow’s Parties," "What Goes On," and others from the Velvets’ influential catalog. Polish up your "shiny, shiny boots of leather" and step into the electric demimonde of the Factory era.
