The event is over

Tribute to the Velvet Underground Legendary American rock group from the end of the 1960s, The Velvet Underground, founded by Lou Reed, John Cale, Maureen Ann Tucker and Sterling Morrison and produced by Andy Warhol, has influenced generations of musicians, from David Bowie, to the punk rock of the 1970s or even part of alternative English rock. By paying tribute to Velvet, the guitarist and singer Rodolphe Burger, notably known via Kat Onoma, is continuing this filiation and retracing his steps. “If, I could say like little Jenny in the Velvet song that my life was “saved by rock and roll” for the first time at the age of 10, I could also say that it was also saved for a second time, at the age of 20, by the Velvet Underground. [...] With Velvet I discovered that rock was not only for teenagers, but also that it could also be contemporary art par excellence.”
