The Warhol welcomes Times New Viking from Columbus, OH, on their way to perform at the Celebrate Brooklyn festival in Prospect Park, as part of a summer tour supporting their new record Dancer Equired on Merge Records. This young trio of art school graduates (Beth Murphy on keyboards/vocals, Adam Elliott on drums/vocals, and Jared Phillips on guitar) has developed a lo-fi, gritty yet ultra-melodic sound which has drawn comparisons to highly influential indie rock bands such as Guided By Voices, Young Marble Giants and the Shaggs. They were also commissioned in the fall of 2008 by the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, to perform a set of Velvet Underground songs related to the special exhibition of Andy Warhol’s film & video work, entitled, Other Voices, Other Rooms.
The new Pittsburgh-based group, Passengers, opens the show.
