John Cale: The Velvet Underground & Nico
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The Velvet Underground cofounder hits BAM for a three-night, two-part stint to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the band's seminal 1967 debut, The Velvet Underground & Nico. Program A (November 16 and 17) sees him performing the album in its entirety with the help of Brooklyn collective Wordless Music Orchestra. For Program B (November 18), Cale revisits songs from across his career, including selections from his 1973 art-pop landmark LP, Paris 1919. Expect the Welsh musician to maintain a delicate balance in these shows: breathing new life into classic songs while still honoring Velvet Underground's enduring legacy.
