Velvet Underground to reunite for "Live from the NYPL"


New York City's '60s darlings The Velvet Underground plan to make a very special and highly anticipated joint appearance on Tuesday, Dec. 8 for the "Live from the New York Public Library" series.

The famed band — whose name appears as a musical influence for just about anyone making good music today — will be interviewed about its five year stint atop the NYC rock movement.  Frontman Lou Reed, Maureen "Mo" Tucker, David Fricke and Doug Yule will represent the band for this special appearance.

The Velvet Underground's music got a serious boost from the band's collaborations with Andy Warhol. Warhol created the iconic album art for The Velvet Underground & Nico, produced the album and was, for a time, the band's manager.

The reunion will take place in the NYPL's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, and if you're going to be in NYC on Dec. 8, you can pick up a ticket through the NYPL website.
