So far, the worst of it involved passing a gaggle of lively teenage girls, and one exclaimed, “What a silver fox!” Otherwise, strangers will generally categorize me as a mutant, and not as an octogenarian.

Eleanor Friedberger & Dean Wareham performs during “Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films” rehearsal at The Andy Warhol Museum.
"I don’t know that many people who don’t feel some sort of connect to Warhol," Eleanor Friedberger tells Billboard. "Certainly as a teenager, I was one of those people who always dreamed of living in New York City for a variety of reasons that mostly come from music and film and art. And he’s a big part of that."
So when someone discovers hundreds of never-before-seen films directed by Warhol, it only makes sense that they should be unveiled to the public with an event that’s half screening, half rock concert.
Now, Wareham and the Warhol Museum are one-upping themselves with Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films. Not only are the films more obscure — they’ve literally never been screened to the public — but they’re also more personal, functioning as home movies for the famous-yet-reclusive genius (who actually appears onscreen in one of them!).
Further upping the ante, Dean and Britta aren’t the only musicians providing the live soundtrack — Television’s Tom Verlaine, Suicide’s Martin Rev, Fiery Furnaces’ Friedberger, Dean & Britta and Deerhunter/Atlas Sound’s Bradford Cox will soundtrack three Warhol shorts apiece when Exposed makes its debut at the Andy Warhol Museum on Oct. 17 (dates at UCLA and Brooklyn’s BAM follow on Oct. 24 and Nov. 6-8, respectively).
