Ever wish you could’ve seen Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory in its heyday? Well, yearn no more! HBO’s newest show “Vinyl,” produced by Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger, presents a raw, gritty portrayal of the music industry and life in New York City during the 1970s.
Revisiting New York City’s old hot spots and hangouts would never be complete without Warhol’s Silver Factory!
The show’s set designer, Bob Shaw, decorated a Brooklyn warehouse just as Billy Name did for Warhol’s loft: with tinfoil, silver paint, and a red velvet couch. “Vinyl” shows Warhol making his famous screen tests starring the Factory’s many famous visitors. However, the originals aren’t lost – many now live on YouTube.
