Completely loved seeing @FrankieCosmos perform her beautiful songs today at MOMA. Perfect summer afternoon surprise. - Mary Steenburgen
NYC-based twee pop/anti-folk-inspired singer/songwriter Frankie Cosmos (aka Greta Kline) recently returned home from tour and last night (8/14) she graced her hometown with an early evening, outdoor show at MoMA, part of their ongoing MoMA Nights series. We're used to seeing her in DIY NYC venues like Shea Stadium and Silent Barn, so this was a special show, seeing Greta and her band -- Porches. frontman Aaron Maine, his brother David, and Eskimeaux (aka Gabby Smith) -- in MoMA's gorgeous courtyard. (It was also a far cry from the frat she played at University of Chicago on tour.) In the audience, her father Kevin Kline could be spotted, as could fellow actor Mary Steenburgen (who tweeted her review, as you can see above). Did you go? What did you think?
