A little background for those who are unfamiliar: Macaulay Culkin, otherwise known as "Kevin!?" from Home Alone, has a pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band. If you need more of an explanation than that -- well, there is none, sadly. Pizza Underground rewrites the Velvets' hits with a pizza-centric twist.
The band has been announcing tour dates across the country, and Dallas can now count itself among those lucky cities. According to Central Track, Parade of Flesh announced that The Pizza Underground will be coming to Club Dada on March 12. Tickets are $13 in advance.

Covers include "Papa John Says," "I'm Beginning to Eat the Slice," "I'm Waiting for Delivery Man," "Cheese Days" and "Take a Bite of the Wild Slice." Also this four-minute video of a very worried-looking Culkin eating a pizza recently turned up on YouTube. It may be a promo for the band or a failed audition tape to be an extra on Sons of Anarchy.
