The Velvet Underground Experience

The Velvet Underground Experience just opened at 718 Broadway in NYC. The multi-media art/music exhibition celebrates one of the most influential—and best—rock bands of all time and runs through December 30. VU co-founder John Cale helped open the exhibit by participating in a Q&A with Q104.3 DJ Jim Kerr and answering questions from the audience. MAGNET photographer Wes Orshoski was there to see what goes on and take these images.
