Synopsis


This animated documentary is the story of the Velvet Underground’s disastrous first public performance. While on stage for merely 20 minutes, the Velvet Underground performed three songs: There She Goes, Venus in Furs, and Heroin. The Summit High School audience responded with, as a band member recalled in 1983, a “murmur of surprise that greeted the appearance” which “increased to a roar of disbelief as the band started to play” and then “swelled to a mighty howl of outrage and bewilderment...” Half the audience walked out.
