This weekend, as part of an Andy Warhol double bill, the local cinema series White Light Cinema will present the recently unearthed The Velvet Underground in Boston (1967). Not to be confused with Warhol's other document of the band, The Velvet Underground and Nico, this one is a 16-millimeter color and sound film, running 33 minutes, that shows the Velvets performing live at the rock club the Boston Tea Party shortly before they began recording their second album, White Light/White Heat. Filling out the bill is Warhol's 1965 film Face, a 66-minute close-up of Edie Sedgwick. The screening takes place Saturday, 8 PM, at Nightingale, 1084 N. Milwaukee, and admission is $7-10 (sliding scale). For more information call White Light Cinema at 773-381-3102.
