Whitney Live: DJ/rupture and Tanlines

FRI, Aug 27, 2010
7 pm

Lower Gallery and Sculpture Court

Whitney Live rocks this July and August with upstarts in experimental pop, tropicalia, chill-wave, beach music, garage rock, post-punk, and globe-trotting bass-inflected DJ beats. 

DJ/rupture:

DJ/rupture (nee Jace Clayton) is a turntablist who has performed live in over 30 countries, bringing with him his signature mix of beats both party-rocking and suggestive of complex political undertones. Rupture spends time cultivating an audience for his border-crossing style as a much-loved DJ on NYC-area radio station WFMU 91.1 FM, as well as on his blog at negrophonic.com.  His last album, Uproot, was one of the 10 Best Albums of 2008 by Pitchfork.

Tanlines:

Tanlines is Jesse Cohen and Eric Emm, Brooklyn-based pop experimenters who make textured yet danceable music jams. Their ever-listenable palette of sounds includes R&B synths, wistful wordless vocals, sega beeps, keyboard riffs, and polyrhythmic drum beats.

 

Free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays from 6–9 pm; there are no special tickets or reservations.
