REGURGITATOR PERFORM THE VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO
TUES 17 JAN – SYDNEY FESTIVAL
Brisbane’s art-rock veterans reinvent the classic album
Brisbane art-rock veterans Regurgitator may not be the first act to come to mind when picking teams for a The Velvet Underground & Nico tribute. But Regurgitator have never met a musical genre they couldn’t lovingly poke a few holes in, or a tongue-in-cheek performance-art stunt they didn’t like the flavour of.
Originally conceived to close the Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, the show returns for a one-off Sydney encore – with Quan, Ben and Peter joined by Seja on keys (and some key vocal duties) and Mindy Meng Wang on the Chinese guzheng. Their faithful but fresh reinvention of one of the greatest albums of all time is a love letter from one set of enduring eccentrics to another.
