Dean and Britta + Andy Warhol = Epic Evening


On August 1, Dean and Britta will unveil their newly created scores to Andy Warhol's screen tests, short silent films centering on individual denizens of his Factory. Part of Celebrate Brooklyn's Music & Movies and Mexican Tourism Series, the show will be a multimedia event in which the silent black and white portraits are projected onto a large, outdoor screen at the Prospect Park Bandshell while the band performs its 13 accompanying musical pieces.

The New York Times raves about the band's 13 Most Beautiful... Songs for Andy Warhol's Screen Tests, stating that "The music unabashedly translates the ominous drone of early Velvet Underground songs like I’m Waiting for the Man and Venus in Furs into a more modern electronic mode reminiscent of Giorgio Moroder’s chic torture-chamber disco.” Commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, the show promises to be a fascinating glimpse at Factory life with an amazing soundtrack.

Crystal Stilts will open the show, which starts at 7:30 PM on the first; admission is free, with a $3 suggested donation. More information is available here.
