One of NYC's most iconic venues, Max's Kansas City, celebrates its 50th anniversary this weekend. Though the venue itself is long gone, it's history is legendary. It showcased a who's who of the NY underground, from Andy Warhol, Candy Darling, Velvet Underground, Patti Smith, New York Dolls, and many many more. Many other artists, designers and musicians also worked the restaurant there before moving on to bigger gigs, most notably Debbie Harry and Anton Perich.

Four-day passes for the shows can be purchased for $39, or you can purchase tickets for individual nights. Tickets are available at Bowery Electric or online through Ticketweb. Tickets for the afterparties are available online and in person at Arlene's Grocery. See below for the full schedule.
