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.
