The Pizza Underground, Macaulay Culkin’s pizza-themed cover band, will play the Black Cat

December 31, 2013

Friday is the perfect day for fans of the Velvet Underground, pizza, Macaulay Culkin and, especially, all of the above: It's when tickets go on sale for the Pizza Underground, Culkin's pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band, who will perform March 21 at the Black Cat.

If you missed it when it went viral last month, the band started as a jokey side project, but with the addition of the former child star, a viral feature on Buzzfeed and a meme-like, unending well of fan art, the Pizza Underground has turned into a full-fledged touring act. Their songs include "I'm Waiting for the Delivery Man," "I'm Beginning to Eat the Slice," and "Cheese Days."

Think of it this way: It might be your only chance to see a grown-up Kevin McAllister play the kazoo and sing about Papa John's. Caulkin is very dedicated to the joke, too -- he's even recreated a pizza-themed version of a famous video of Andy Warhol eating a hamburger.

Tickets are $15. And since you'll definitely want to eat pizza before or after you see this show, here's a list of all the pizzerias on 14th Street.
