The de Young Museum in San Francisco is holding Andy Warhol tryouts for Warhol Live. Do you have to do everything he did? Do you gots to “interview” Steven Spielberg on a bed? Must you have annoyingly advertised exhibitions in London? I hope that anyone who catches the live performance of 13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests will be as thrilled and exorcised as I was by Britta’s rendition of Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Keep it with Mine,” set against Nico‘s screen test (Dylan wrote the song for Nico). A thousand times better than Marriane Faithful’s version (video)!
