Macaulay Culkin’s Pizza Underground Coming to Black Cat
No, this headline wasn’t bot-generated. By Sophie Gilbert

Here’s some cheery news just in time for Christmas movie binge-watching: The Pizza Underground, Macaulay Culkin’s pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band, will be coming to Black Cat’s backstage March 21. In case you aren’t familiar with the phenomenon of The Pizza Underground, Culkin and friends Matt Colbourn, Phoebe Kreutz, Deenah Vollmer, and Austin Kilham perform songs by the Velvet Underground with the lyrics rewritten to reference pizza.

Does it sound like a Sesame Street skit? Yes. Should you pay $15 to witness Richie Rich playing a kazoo live on stage? Only you can answer that question. But as Stereogum wrote in a review of the show a week ago, “I have seen the future of rock and roll, and it is delicious.” Watch a video of the band performing below.
