Andy Warhol can be, let's face it, kind of a bother. Tuesday Night, the Palace of Fine Arts and the San Francisco Film Society beg to differ. Warhol's Screen Tests, which feature celebrities of the day posing, not posing, and just looking awkward, will be shown to an expectedly befuddled audience. But in case staring at Edie Sedgwick, Dennis Hopper, Nico, Lou Reed, and a slew of other fascinating faces wasn't enough, the equally beautiful Dean & Britta will be there in person to lend their post-pop stylings to the affair. Formerly of Luna fame, Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips are taking this short tour to show "silent" films some classic distortion.

Dean Wareham was kind enough to email answers to a few pithy questions from me as he was boarding a plane to our fair city. All interviews should be like Lawrence Fishburne speed chess.
