"MoMA garden party. Hugh Jackman introducing a fully acoustic set by Karen O." - Jared

Karen O and Nick Zinner at the MOMA

"Karen O and Nick Zinner" performed at last night's MoMA Party in the Garden, an annual fundraiser that Estelle, M.I.A. and James Murphy have all played in recent years past. They were rounded out by a full band that included Imaad Wasif on acoustic guitar, Russell Simins filling in on drums, and a string section. They played Yeah Yeah Yeahs songs and "All is Love" by Karen O & The Kids (from Where the Wild Things Are). The full setlist, video of "Maps" and more pictures below...

the wine selection was rather pedestrian

weird y'all. seems like the kind of thing only New Yorkerz do, via access to boatloads of money sent in burlap bags from the rentz. break out the fancy duds.

I think this should of been the first post for the BV spinoff site "Midtown Carnivore"

I'm still listening to "It's Blitz" frequently. The YYY's are great.

Evening gowns and suits...now that's rock n' roll!

LCD Soundsystem/Yeah Yeah Yeahs/More at Randall's Island in August:)

I think YYYs would headline over LCD. Even if that's just a BS rumour you are spreading.

Miss O is a snappy dresser :-)

I don't know why they insist on this slowed down version of Maps when the original treatment is far superior.

Posted by GD | May 26, 2010 9:34 AM

I like the shower curtain Karen is wearing. Do they have those at Target?

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 10:28 AM

Is that hand about to grab that ass? It does look like a work of art.

Posted by anonymous2 | May 26, 2010 10:28 AM

wow, didn't this look like such a suave affair.

How long before it's just the O O O's?

I didn't know Ron Jeremy played drums-

Posted by anonymoose | May 26, 2010 11:03 AM

by those pics it doesn't look that crowded. did this sell out?

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 11:06 AM

Jesus that crowd looks like a party and a half. They apparently love getting their picture taken as well.

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 11:24 AM

it was crowded and sold out.

whoever does the Muzak light version cover of Maps that I heard on the radio in a grocery store is B A D.

I always laugh when I see kids dressed up and playing grownup.

Where is GG Allin when you really need him?

The YYY's rocked it. Their sound was great live / the video not so much.

@ 10. 28, that is Russell Simins bro, formerly of the jsbe! get it right.

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 4:12 PM

That wasn't Ron Jeremy or Russell Simins, it was Jann Wenner.

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 4:51 PM

either way, dude was right: that is one FAT drummer!

Posted by ev | May 26, 2010 5:34 PM

hey in no way am i the pc police but those comments about the drummer upset me, he seems like a genuinely nice guy. make fun of karen o and the 50 lbs. of make up she wears on her ugly face.

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 8:01 PM

The best drummers are fat.

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 8:02 PM

isn't the drummer in the vivian girls fat?

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2010 12:20 AM

Ah Yes, I always knew the self obsessed YYY's were of the same ilk as the upper crust inbred hollow money elite of much of Manhattan. Very fitting.

Little Nick has a heart on for Hugh Assman.

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2010 4:35 AM

Hugh Jackassman is with his pimp daddy Grey head, hump the butt a doo doo.

Karen O looks like a naughty Pigeon.

Like sux, social programming. Gotta be cool.

why do you "hipsters" "yuppies" ect, all have the same stupid face?

WTF is this world? I want fun.

Nick Zinner looks like a sex-less Nick Cave...

i love this band so very very much and i simply cannot stand maps. woooooooooooooorst

Who were the "friends", I couldn't stop staring at how beautiful the violinist was.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2010 11:51 PM

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
