The Velvet Underground: Film Screening + VU inspired live show

We’re delighted to present an evening of velvet drone at Out to Lunch! Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Todd HaynesThe Velvet Underground shows just how this remarkable group became a cultural touchstone representing a range of contradictions: the band is both of their time, yet timeless; literary yet realistic; rooted in high art and street culture.

The film features in-depth interviews with the key players of that time combined with a treasure trove of never-before-seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films, and other experimental art that creates an immersive experience into what founding member John Cale describes as the band’s creative ethos: “how to be elegant and how to be brutal.”

Following the screening we’ll be serving up a live set from some of our own sonic descendants of the Velvets’ rich legacy.

‘This is a great documentary about people who are serious about music and serious also about art, and what it means to live as an artist.’★★★★ The Guardian
