Pow­ered equally by Lou Reed’s vi­sion­ary songs, John Cale’s train­ing in hard­core min­i­mal­ism, the on­rush­ing rhythm gui­tars of Reed and Ster­ling Mor­ri­son, and the pound­ing mo­men­tum of Mau­reen Tucker’s drum­ming, the Vel­vet Un­der­ground pro­vided the un­likely tem­plate for thou­sands of bands to fol­low. In the process, they made the lines be­tween pop and the avant-garde vir­tu­ally ir­rel­e­vant — much like their ad­vo­cate and men­tor, Andy Warhol. Their fate­ful al­liance with Warhol changed the course of Amer­i­can mu­sic and of rock and roll worldwide. Tonight, Film Love presents an im­mer­sive, multi-pro­jec­tion trib­ute to the Vel­vets and Warhol through the band’s 16mm films from this era. The screen­ing is in con­junc­tion with the ex­hibit Chimera: Andy Warhol through the 1980s, which will be open for view­ing be­fore the event.
