San Francisco: Dean & Britta and Warhol's Screen Tests live on February 9

Several years ago, Dean Wareham (ex-Galaxie 500) and Britta Phillips (ex-Luna) created an alluring soundtrack of new songs and covers to accompany Andy Warhol's famed "Screen Tests" shot at The Factory in the mid-1960s. On February 9, Dean & Britta will bring this mesmerizing multimedia song cycle to life once again in a special concert at the the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco. "13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests"

(The Dean & Britta event is just a week after I will be interviewing Peter Hook of New Order and Joy Division on that same JCCSF stage. Info on that here with more to come!)


  1. Damn that blond brushing her teeth at 27 seconds looks like TWiT’s Sarah Lane… Perhaps it’s her mom???

    1. I gotta say that compared to asking about the music that Hook wrote and performed as a founder of Joy Division and New Order, and the culture that the music was spawned from and helped create, your “zinger” of a “question” just ain’t that interesting to me.

  2. Did nobody ever smile at the Factory?

    Lou Reed looks cool, though, as does Dennis Hopper.

    I have a third hand Dennis Hopper story…

    A friend of a friend was a printer and affermationist down in London. Somehow he linked up with Dennis Hopper for a night of drug fuelled debauchery. Morning comes too early and our printer is curled up in his pit hoping that the world will go away and leave him alone, when the door bursts open. There is Hopper, fresh as a daisy, with a bottle of vodka in each pocket. “See ya!”, he cries and heads off to another day of excess.
