Needle goes VELVET with KIKA Da Silva & Teuk Henri
21 November, 2021 @ 17:00 CET
NEEDLE goes VELVET is a Nico tribute by Kika Da Silva & Needle. A cool original storytelling performance & semi-acoustic Velvet Underground set as in Andy Warhol’s The Factory, New York late ’60’s.
“Needle And The Pain Reaction, legendary Power Trio from Ghent and celebrating their 21 year anniversary in 2021 with a new singles & an upcoming album in 2022, still found the time for a wonderful side track project.
Together with artist, musician, guitarist Teuk Henri and inspired by Kika Da Silva, Photographer, Flamenco Danser, Video Director, Actress, Writer and Artist in Movement, Needle will pay tribute to Nico, German singer, songwriter, musician, model, and actress, but above all fragile muse for Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground.
Needle will play Velvet Underground songs that once were carried by Nico’s dark voice, not in their hometown, but in Ibiza (Spain), the island where she went on holiday in June 1988 to rest but died after having a stroke while cycling.
Though Nico her singing was quite extraordinary and unique, Kika Da Silva does an amazing job performing these songs on stage, backed by Needle’s supercooled interpretation of these Velvet songs.
Needle goes Velvet featuring Kika Da Silva will not only play their best known songs such as Sunday Morning, All Tomorrow’s Parties, Femme Fatale and more, but Kika will also tell stories from her turbulent life and inside gossip stories from The Factory where she spent her most extravagant years in the company of John Cale, Lou Reed, and many more legends from that era.
