We wrapped up the month of March with a big salute to The Velvet Underground and Lou Reed.
With British pop artist Philip Colbert’s work as a colorful backdrop, The Musical Tracing Ensemble, a 15-member group fronted by LA Takedown’s Aaron Olson, played tribute to The Velvet Underground with an orchestral 45-minute set. Later Ian Svenonius, playing as Escape-Ism with Alexandra Cabral, performed his own rousing show in celebration of the band and the man's 55-year legacy.
The whole night came together beautifully with the indispensable talent of Gemma Lacey, the generous support of Unit London, Saatchi Gallery, and Lagunitas Beer.
Both the Velvets and Lou Reed books are available for immediate shipping.
