Miguel/Jamie xx's crowd at MoMA PS1 - 8/4/12

This summer's Warm Up at MoMA PS1, a series featuring afternoon dance parties from forward thinking electronic musicians every Saturday in MoMA PS1's outdoor courtyard, continued this past Saturday (8/4) with sets from Jamie xx, Miguel, Lemonade, Sinjin Hawke, Pearson Sound, and Zora Jones. This one sold out in advance, and the line to get in was crazy long as usual. Many people who didn't have tickets showed up anyway and listened from outside.

For Miguel, Warm Up was his first public NYC show since his private EP release party at Joe's Pub that he played earlier in the week. Rolling Stone caught his set and wrote:

Miguel performed a brief yet galvanizing set with his neon-clad backing band, delivering one of the few "concert" experiences of the evening and giving the thousands crammed into the gravel-floored courtyard something to scream about with a handful of weather-appropriate nü-R&B tracks off his forthcoming LP Kaleidoscope Dream in addition to a newly rap-infused performance of one of his well-worn covers, 2Pac's "I Get Around."

Meanwhile, for Jamie xx, Warm Up was one of two DJ sets he delivered this past weekend while in town in between The xx's Terminal 5 show last Thursday (8/2) and their Staten Island show, which is TONIGHT (8/6) at Snug Harbor Music Hall (sold out). Jamie premiered a new xx song during his set, and had the crowd going pretty nuts. After that show, he headed over to Manhattan to DJ a FIXED party at Le Poisson Rouge with John Talabot, who will be supporting The xx on many of their upcoming dates (none in NYC) and will return to LPR for a live show with Pional on September 27. Some videos of Jamie and John's sets from LPR are below.

Jamie xx wasn't the only one on Saturday's Warm Up lineup to keep the party going late into the night. Lemonade showed up in Williamsburg to DJ a party at Glasslands with Blondes and Rewards, and they killed it. Meanwhile, Sinjin Hawke was next door murdering 285 Kent with Egyptrixx, Elite Gymnastics, N0ms, Gobby, and MikeQ. Blood Diamonds, who had played Glasslands one night earlier (8/3) with Le1f and Gobby, showed up for a secret late set at the show. A video of Blood DIamonds' set from 285 Kent is below.

More pictures (unfortunately none of Sinjin Hakwe or Zora Jones) from Warm Up and all videos are below.

Pearson Sound and Jamie XX were great. Miguel was about as awful as the lines outside.

11:06 you ain't kidding. This is so gay it makes Frohawk blush.

Whether you like electronic music or not, one thing P.S.1 Warm Up series parties used to have is a cool, artsy, fashion forward crowd. WTF happened?!?

^^
it has become too widely known about and attended, frankly. the earlier parties were lesser known and had a cooler and more genuine following. this looks like a complete shit show, in comparison. pass!

I've lived in LIC 7 years and ppl used to think it was out on Long Island. Now you mention LIC it's synonymous with Warm up. I miss the days of Water Taxi but 5 pntz has a good after party

Looks like 11:37 got his answer!

12:08 that is what happened exactly. there were a lot ppl there on sat who were there for the first time or year. also, say for example 5 yrs ago or more techno/house was less popularized and lived only within a segment of the public. now its part of the mainstream. that is why those crowds were so diverse. it was dbag central in there on sat. If I wasn't with a big group of friends it would have totally sucked. also, I've heard jamie play a lot better. 1st half of his set was great. latter half he lost the flow. I left early.

The term "hipster" has become severely devalued

I agree with a lot of the above comments. Anything worthwhile in NY will eventually get swarmed. I went to two Warm Ups this year. Drink lines are unacceptable and buzz killing. But Warm Up can be a lot of fun if there is a decent act or DJ. Some of the performances have been atrocious. The programmer has a lot to answer for.

pearson sound is the truth. Best set of the day by far.

Jamie xx couldn't mix a record if his life depended on it. Great track selection.

John Talabot stole the show at LPR. that guy is going places. Can't wait to see him live in September

"The term "hipster" has become severely devalued."

This is why I use the word "trendie" instead now.

I would of been there screaming at the top of my lungs. I mean there were so many great bands and dj's there. It sucks that I didn't get to go. I really wanted to go.
