"The Velvet Underground: A New York Extravaganza" at Philharmonie du Paris is the show of a lifetime.
It depicts 1960s downtown Manhattan in all its gritty glory, mainly with photos by Fred W. McDarrah. The brilliant show tells the story of the Velvets and their influence on, well, everything.
There's also a little Warhol and Malanga and Nico and Jonas Mekas and Barbara Rubin and Allen Ginsberg and all the cool characters of the era.
If you can't get to Paris this summer, the show is expected to travel to Prague and then possibly the New Museum on The Bowery.
Don't miss it.
