Rober Forster-Velvet Underground

Update : Greetings to all the visitors from the Robert Forster site. These pictures are more of the 'behind the scenes' variety, taken while I was setting up for the show, thus the quality is less than stellar. However, the show and the band was stellar. Also, I posted some more pictures here...

Update #2 : More pictures here

As part of the Wexner Center for the Arts show Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms, we provided PA and monitors for Robert Forster :
"Celebrate the opening weekend of Andy Warhol: Other Voices, Other Rooms with this special event spotlighting the music of art-rock legends the Velvet Underground—a band Warhol produced and championed.

"You’ll hear timeless Velvets’ classics performed by Robert Forster, one of the founders of revered Aussie indie band The Go-Betweens. We’re one of only two venues in this country to host Forster’s tribute concert, which he originally performed with his band at a Warhol exhibition in Queensland. (The other venue is Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum.) Forster and his excellent combo rip into "I’m Waiting for My Man," "All Tomorrow’s Parties," "What Goes On," and others from the Velvets’ influential catalog. Polish up your "shiny, shiny boots of leather" and step into the electric demimonde of the Factory era."

Nice shots!

Sounds like a fascinating gig. Do you have a recording of it for us Forster (and VU) fans?!
