Alt-shudder heroes Dean and Britta have created a spacey, sexy, smoke-addled score to 13 of Andy Warhols silent screen tests: Factory-era portraits of scenesters such as Nico, Edie Sedgwick, and Dennis Hopper. The DVD is being advertised as the first-ever authorized DVD of Andy Warhols films, but you can see D&B perform it live while the stark black-and-white head shots are projected on the more-than-ample screen at Prospect Park Bandshell. The score is gorgeous acid-indie, which shouldnt surprise fans of their previous bands, Galaxie 500 and Luna, and owes more than a little to Warhol buddies the Velvet Underground—especially appropriate for those shots of 60s Lou Reed drinking a Coke and looking serious. Openers Crystal Stilts are a little more insular, but no less arty. Their Joy Division shiver-and-peel is played with the anti-zeal of a lo-fi garage project.
