I Spent a Week There the Other Night is the third album by Moe Tucker. The album has performances by various members of the Velvet Underground, including Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison and John Cale. All four original members of the Velvets play together on "I'm Not", making it their only studio collaboration on original material since 1968.

Included on the album is a cover of "Then He Kissed Me", originally by the Crystals, as well as a cover of the Velvet Underground song, "I'm Waiting for the Man". The latter is omitted from the LP release.[clarification needed]
