So, Macaulay Culkin is part of a band called The Pizza Underground. They play pizza-themed covers of Velvet Underground songs. And now they’re playing at The Harley. No, really.
The Pizza Underground finally gets around to doing what we’ve all been thinking about for years: rewriting Velvet Underground songs to be about pizza. Band-members Matt Colbourn, Deenah Vollmer, Austin Kilham, Phoebe Kreutz and Macaulay Culkin will burn your mouth with low-fi hits like “All the Pizza Parties” (All Tomorrow’s Parties), “Pizza, It Hurts” (Venus in Furs), and “Take a Bite of the Wild Slice” (Walk on the Wild Side”). The band’s “Fresh to Your Door Tour” starts making deliveries to the U.S. in March.
“Pizza, It Hurts”! As committed devotees to a tenuous pun at Harley Live, we are 100% on board with the project. See also: the entire Twisted Burger Company menu.
Tickets are onsale from Friday 7th March from here or with no booking fee from The Harley, The Wick at Both Ends, Record Collector and The Old Sweet Shop. We’re strongly expecting this to sell out, so if you’re not going to be at Primavera watching St. Vincent, get your ticket quick to come and see…this.
