    Born from the iconic NY art and music scene of the late ’60s and the brilliant, untamed minds of its founding members Lou Reed and John Cale, The Velvet Underground are now considered rock ‘n’ roll royalty...but that wasn’t always so.

    From surviving off oatmeal and donating blood for rent money, to the fame of being the de facto house band of Andy Warhol’s Factory and the objects of the socialite’s fleeting affection, to the unraveling of Cale and Reed’s creative partnership in a storm of jealousy and paranoia, the Velvets’ story is as bold, challenging, and fascinating as their music.

    Explore the story behind the group NYT called "arguably the most influential American rock band of our time," through good times and bad, as captured by Eisner-nominated Koren Shadmi.
