On December 11, 1965, the Velvet Underground played their first show- under the name "The Velvet Underground" and with drummer Maureen Tucker- in the auditorium of Summit High School. Tickets cost $2.50, and other bands included the headliners The Myddle Class, as well as The Forty Fingers.

The VU played three songs ("There She Goes Again," "Venus In Furs," and "Heroin"), then walked out with the new Wollensack tape recorder of journalist Al Aronowitz. Gotta buy them drugs somehow.

In 1974, the three African American brothers recorded seven protopunk songs at United Sounds Studio in Detroit.

The band's story was featured in the 2012 documentary A Band Called Death.
