Time Out says

A founding member of the Velvet Underground who went on to dabble in straight-ahead rock, avant-garde composition and classical music, John Cale has a reputation as a daring musician and an adventurous producer. After working on music with contemporary artists like Field Music and Marissa Nadler, Cale recently revisited and reinterpreted his 1982 art rock opus, Music For a New Society. Cale's performance at the Art Institute coincides with the closing of the “From A to B and Back Again” exhibition, which explores the work of artist—and, briefly, the Velvet Underground's manager and producer—Andy Warhol.
