Posted by The Bay Area Crew, February 16, 2014 07:38pm | Post a Comment

All the things that matter most in this world: the music of Velvet Underground, pizza...well, that about covers pizza undergroundit.

By now, it's well-known that Home Alone's Macaulay Culkin has grown up into an adventurous and mature actor, artist, New York man-about-town, and has joined a pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band called the Pizza Underground. Yes, they re-write all your favorite VU songs to contain a healthy dose of the 'za: "I'm Waiting for the Delivery Man," "All the Pizza Parties," "Take a Bite of the Wild Slice," just to name a few.

Pizza Underground has been active in the NY anti-folk scene since 2012 with members Matt Colbourn, Phoebe Kreutz, Deenah Vollmer, and Austin Kilham. Culkin joined up sometime last year and recorded the band's live demo at his house. Culkin is credited with percussion, kazoo, and vocals.

But do they deliver? Find our for yourself on Wednesday, March 5th at San Francisco's Neck of the Woods. Amoeba SF favorites Windham Flat and Brooklyn's Toby Goodshank open!
