LOU REED, THE VELVET UNDERGROUND, NICO, ANDY WARHOL AND THE SOUNDS OF DISSENT
Rare Clips Retrospective
Music Archivist and Historian Bill Shelley expected
The 1960s was a time of experimentation, questioning, and reinvention. Many musicians, writers, and other artists gravitated to Andy Warhol’s Factory for the freedom they sought to create, and the notoriety they needed to seek commercial success. The Velvet Underground, with their lead singer-song writer, Lou Reed, were at the very center of it all. Music archivist Bill Shelley offers a 90-minute curated show of rare archival clips, followed by a discussion.
