Andy Warhol Birthday Bash with Brendan Anderson, Holly Von Sinn & More (Other BEAMSers)

The man who redefined pop art and created the Exploding Plastic Inevitable, which gave rise to the Velvet Underground, would have been 84 on this date. To commemorate the artistic legacy of this countercultural vanguard, a number of locals hit the Boho stage.

Brendan Anderson
Edmonton's demon of drone!

Holly Von Sinn
A burlesque retrospect of the wigged wonder!

Porcelain Heart
Today's counterculture walking on the wild side!

Stephen Sereda
A flaky mashup of mayhem!

Plus one more unbilled act...

9 p.m., $10, 18+
