Velvet Shock

"… what about the night Andy Warhol got the Velvet Underground to play a convention of psychiatrists at Delominco’s steak house?

Gerard and Edie jumped up on the stage and started dancing, and the doors flew open and Jonas Mekas and Barbara Rubin with her crew of people with camera and bright lights came storming into the room and rushing over to all the psychiatrists asking them things like:

Why are you getting embarrasssed? You’re a psychiatrist; you’re not supposed to get embarrassed...."
