James Murphy at Brooklyn Bazaar (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
James Murphy

It's benefit season, don't you know? MoMA's annual Party in the Garden is on Tuesday (5/22) with Santigold as the featured performer, and then the next night (Wed. 5/23) it's the Spring Gala Benefit at The Kitchen, one of New York's oldest not-for-profit performance spaces. It happens at Capitale (130 Bowery) and this year's guests of honor are video and performance artist Joan Jonas and minimalist composer Steve Reich. The evening features performances from David Cossin (Bang on a Can), Jason Moran and My Brightest Diamond's Shara Worden. The afterparty features a DJ set from James Murphy.

Tickets are still available, and will set you back anywhere from $500 - $25,000. If you just want to go to the afterparty, tickets start at $75. The proceeds will support artistic and production fees for The Kitchen's annual presenting season, which features experimental work by innovative artists, both emerging and established. Programs range from dance, music, and theatrical performances to video and media arts exhibitions to literary events, film screenings, and artists' talks.

If you can't make the Spring Gala then you can still catch James Murphy behind the decks at GoogaMooga this weekend. He'll headline the Pagoda Stage on 5/19 as part of the ExtraMooga portion of the program. Tickets for ExtraMooga are still available and the full schedule of events (with times) are up. Murphy will also DJ the upcoming Roots Picnic.

Is it me or does James Murphy seem to be just cashing in on DJ sets everywhere since last April....

I mean I thought he said he was going to produce other artists and enjoy time off from touring!
