Friday Genius Ten “Pittsburgh Rocks” Edition
Last night, we ended up skipping Clinton’s speech and going to the Warhol Museum party before the crowd came, and thank god, because they closed the exhibits somewhat early, and if we hadn’t done that, we wouldn’t have seen the amazing Velvet Underground exhibit. It was a room with couches and the VU blaring and videos of them in the Warhol era projected on the walls. So very cool. Obviously, this means I’ll have to do a Genius mix off the Velvet Underground. Leave yours in comments.
