Macaulay Culkin Is In A Pizza-Themed Velvet Underground Cover Band Called The Pizza Underground

Really, though.

1. This is The Pizza Underground.

2. This is thespian and artist Macaulay Culkin.

(And also Matt Colbourn, Phoebe Kreutz, Deenah Vollmer, and Austin Kilham.)

3. So far The Underground only have one recording — a medley of VU and VU-related songs “recorded live at Macaulay Culkin’s house.”

4. The covers are faithful, if ramshackle, with one important exception: now all the lyrics are about pizza.

“I’m begininnnnng to eaaaat the sliiiice.”

5. They’ve only played a show or two around New York, including one at famed anti-folk stomping ground Sidewalk Cafe.

From the review:

“With one of the five members on guitar and the rest of the band on forms of percussion (including pizza box – clean), the sunglasses-adorned band belted out a medley of VU material…”

Emphasis mine.

6. This is what band practice in Macaulay Culkin’s living room looks like.

7. Important hospitality rider info if you’re considering booking the band:

8. In summation: “Macaulay Culkin: child actor”
