PS1WarmUp

For more than two decades, MoMA PS1’s Warmup Party has been an important part of summertime in New York City. Not only are the Saturday afternoon parties well-curated to feature established and rising DJs and acts, but the crowds are also always thoroughly enthusiastic.

The line-up features DJ sets and live performances by Amorphous, Yung Baby Tate, Yu Su, glaive and ericdoa, Sango, foreigner, La Goony Chonga and more.

According to organizers, capacity will be limited. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test is required for entry. Full lineups can be found below.

Warm Up 2021 will be performed from Rashid Johnson’s Stage, “a participatory installation and sound work that draws on the history of the microphone as a tool for protest and public oratory.”

The Avalanches Announce 13-City 2022 North American Tour

The Avalanches tour dates

After releasing a deluxe edition to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark album Since I Left You in June (the full-length was originally released by Modular Recordings in 2000 and the U.S. and U.K. in 2001 to massive critical acclaim) featuring previously unreleased remixes by the likes of Prince Paul, MF DOOM, Black Dice, Leon Vynehall, Sinkane and Carl Craig, enigmatic Australian electronic outfit The AvalanchesRobbie Chater and Tony Diblasi — have announced they are North America bound in early 2022.

The 13-city trek kicks off on February 17 at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. and concludes on March 6 at The Warfield in San Francisco.

Talking about the group’s historic album, Chater reflected: “I remember very clearly a few things. We decided to not have any of our voices on it, which made it last because it’s a kind of transmission; nothing date-stamps it to that time. Also we were careful not to use any trendy software from 1999 or 2000. So it does seem to just float around in time…”

“Music lovers get it, and that’s what we ultimately are,” he continues. “It’s almost like an exploration of our relationship with the world and with music and, as music fans, what our place is in the whole process. Looking back, I’m proud of this record as a pure expression of joy and love, heart on its sleeve and is free from irony.”
