Kevin Ferguson reporting. We talked to him this past weekend, and tomorrow night you can see him live. John Cale (Velvet Underground co-founder, Squeeze/Stooges/Patti Smith producer and criminally underappreciated solo artist) is performing at Royce Hall tomorrow night. It's a special two part set: during part one, he'll perform the ornate and gorgeous Paris 1919 in its entirety, and then save the second part for a more traditional mix of Cale's classics and new material.
According to UCLA, the second part of the set will also feature guest appearances from contemporary rock heavyweights like Mark Lanegan of the Screaming Trees/Queens of the Stone Age and Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie. Tickets are still available!
