For one night only in New York, Le Poisson Rouge will host an intimate concert honoring Velvet Underground collaborator Nico. The concert will feature six artists performing a mix of Nico covers and originals, including Marissa Nadler, U.S. Girls, Julie Byrne, Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance / IUD), L’Rain and Tammy Faye Starlite on Aug. 2. The event coincides with the release of the new film Nico, 1988, starring Trine Dyrholm, directed by Susanna Nicchiarelli and opening in NYC on Aug. 1 and in LA on Aug. 3. The film follows famed musician Nico leading a solitary existence in Manchester, her life and career are on the ropes, a far cry from her glamorous days as a Warhol superstar and celebrated vocalist for The Velvet Underground. Tickets for the show can be found here.
