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: THEESatisfaction
Stasia “Stas” Irons and Catherine “Cat” Harris-White, vocals and electronics
The sound of the Seattle-based THEESatisfaction infuses funk-psychedelic feminista sci-fi epics with the warmth and depth of black jazz and Sunday morning soul, frosted with icy raps that evoke Elaine Brown, Ursula Rucker, and Q-Tip. Rapper Irons and singer Harris-White write, perform, and produce their own material. Immediately embraced for their singular sound, unflinching commentary, and immortal groove, they have made friends, fans, and new family from coast to coast through a combination of sharp digital hustle and self-organized tours that connect them to like minds everywhere. The band’s debut full-length album, awE NaturalE, was released by Sub Pop in 2012. Pop Matters praised it as “a powerful testament to hip-hop’s potential for challenging, inspiring, and pushing beyond the boundaries of genre toward new and exciting forms of hybridity and interconnection.”
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.
