Tonight’s Music Performance: TEEN
Teeny Lieberson, guitar, keyboards, vocals; Lizzie Lieberson, keyboards, vocals; Jane Herships, bass, vocals; Katherine Lieberson, drums, vocals
Brooklyn’s TEEN came together when Teeny Lieberson, formerly of Here We Go Magic, joined forces with her sisters Katherine and Lizzie and longtime friend Jane Herships. Forgoing girl-group gimmickry and fervor, the band’s digital-only debut EP, Little Doods featured a sound of languid, lo-fi psych-pop redolent of Paisley Underground bands like Opal and Rain Parade. The full-length In Limbo was released to acclaim in August 2012. Rolling Stone put the group’s “Better” on its list of the “50 Best Songs of 2012.” The group has been featured on bands-to-watch lists on the websites of Time magazine, Stereogum, and Gothamist. TEEN’s new EP Carolina, released in May by Carpark Records, is a more natural affair, with the band only playing what the members could physically perform in a live setting.
Tonight’s performance was selected by MoMA’s PopRally committee.
Snacks and Beverages in the Garden
Seasonal snacks, bruschetta selections, and specialty cocktails, draft beer, wine, and nonalcoholic beverages are available for purchase in the Sculpture Garden on Thursday nights. The Garden Bar, located at the northeast corner of the Sculpture Garden, also sells savory and sweet treats, including local gelato, sorbetto, homemade desserts, wine, beer, and specialty cocktails. In the event of rain, bars will be closed.
Terrace Dining (rain or shine)
Terrace 5, located on the fifth floor, serves Chef Lynn Bound’s light, seasonal cuisine, with a view overlooking the Sculpture Garden. An à la carte menu is offered indoors, and a special "urban picnic" fixed price menu is available on the terrace during the summer months, including cured meats, cheeses, salads, sweets, and more (with optional wine pairing). Seatings are offered from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Reserve at email@example.com and include name, preferred time, number of guests, and phone number. The "urban picnic" menu is $32 per person (excluding beverages, sales tax, and service)—10% MoMA member discount not applicable.
