Flyer for Andy Warhol’s Up-Tight, a historic multimedia show and performance with The Velvet Underground -- the first public performance by The Velvet Underground with Nico; the first collaboration between Warhol and the Velvet Underground, which would later become The Exploding Plastic Inevitable; and the first time More Milk, Yvette, starring Mario Montez and The Velvet Underground, was ever screened.

Warhol projected films and The Velvet Underground performed in the shadows while various superstars and guests, including Edie Sedgwick, Gerard Malanga, Donald Lyons, Barbara Rubin, Bob Neuwirth, Paul Morrissey, and Billy Linich danced around the stage or otherwise contributed to the show.

An extremely scarce document from one of the most critical moments in the Factory scene, and the history of the Velvet Underground.
