on-going live music series
The Andy Warhol Museum began the Sound Series
in 2004 as a consistent and ongoing concert series featuring nationally and
internationally touring artists, often paired with local artists from the
Pittsburgh area. The Sound Series includes a broad range of artists and bands
that increasingly blur genres and sensibilities of contemporary independent
music, with performances taking place in variety of venues ranging from the
Warhol theater, which offers an intimate performance experience with warm
acoustics and strong sound clarity, to the Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland.
The Sound Series is inspired by Warhol's extensive involvement in music as
an album cover designer, manager of the Velvet Underground, and record producer
with connections to bands such as the Rolling Stones, Blondie and The Cars.
