Velvet Underground Tribute
It was Brian Eno who said, "The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band.” Thus, indeed this quote indeed rings true here in Birmingham as well. We’ve put together a night of some of our finest local musicians paying homage to revolutionary unhinged sound that was fused together by Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, Moe Tucker, and Nico as well. In a time where rock and roll music was becoming increasingly sophisticated, intellectual, overblown, and having an ever-increasing demand for a virtuositic musicianship, The Velvet Underground emerged from the backstreets of New York City with a calm, cool, and collected style that merged pop art, street poetry, and gender bending ambiguity into music. This is one tribute night we’ve been looking forward to for a long time, and we’re predicting it will easily be one of the best and most inspired. We really hope you come celebrate the VU with us. Additionally, if your band is interested in squeezing onto to bill, please email: brian@saturnbirmingham.com. Thanks.
