Musical acts for the 2014 series feature an array of vibrant, creative women who are making their mark on today’s music scene. Veterans and up-and-coming artists perform a range of musical styles, including dream and synth pop, alt-folk, surf rock, neo-soul, and pop punk.
The series was organized in collaboration with PopRally, MoMA’s cross-departmental committee that programs events at MoMA and MoMA PS1.
Tonight's Musical Performance: Tashaki Miyaki
Lucy Miyaki, drums, voice; Rocky Tashaki, guitars; Dora Hiller, bass, voice
The lo-fi, dream-pop trio Tashaki Miyaki, based in Los Angeles, was born from a late night jam between Miyaki and Tashaki in early 2011. They soon started making recordings with producer-engineer Joel Jerome. Posting a few songs on bandcamp.com suddenly led to responses from bloggers and business-types alike, including jetting off to London to play a private event at the legendary 100 Club. Seeking to fill out their live sound, the duo asked bassist Dora Hiller to join. Since then Tashaki Miyaki has toured North America and the United Kingdom, and released a self-titled EP, a single (Luvluvluv Records), a seven-inch of Everly Brothers covers (Rough Trade/For Us Records), and a tape of early recordings (Burger Records). A debut full-length album is in the works. A writer for Fader observed that the band’s serene, ambling sound is “so pretty I’m afraid saying anything else might diminish it.”
Snacks and Beverages in the Garden
Seasonal snacks, chef’s choice small plates, 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 locally made 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.
