John & Moe together at Grammy Beacon Theatre concert

Postby bleach » 13 Jul 2017 13:17

Good to see John & Moe on the stage again..

Tuesday night (7/11) at Beacon Theatre was the 2017 “GRAMMY Salute to Music Legends” — an awards ceremony and concert that honored this year’s 2017 Merit Awards recipients. Among those recipients were The Velvet Underground. “The establishment caught up with us at last,” joked John Cale accepting the award, and then he and his band performed VU classics “Sunday Morning” and “I’m Waiting for the Man.” Surprise: he brought Moe Tucker with him who played percussion.

Cale further reclaims his part of the VU and rescues it from the live '93 memory. He's always been good playing VU live.
Pity Moe wasn't playing the drums but nice to see her there on percussion.
Watched the 2 x mobile films on loop and felt the spirit of Warhol in the camerawork :)

Wish Cale would open his VU vaults. :)

thnx for the link

WTF is Cale wearing? It looks like a dress or skirt and high heels. :x

By the way the third speaker is Martha Morrison, Sterling's widow.

Suspect they're shorts.

That is quite a statement. What do you base it on?

Glad to be completely wrong based on this!

From Vogue

'After this story was published, Mr. Cale was kind enough to reach out via Twitter to let us know that he’s in fact wearing a Hood By Air dress, and not a shirt, and provided a full-length shot of the look'
