Tashaki Miyaki

Indie pop infusion filled the garden at MoMA last night as Los Angeles-based Tashaki Miyaki took the stage as part of the MoMA Nights series that continues through the end of the August. Families, older couples, twenty-somethings, art-types, music lovers and everyone in between came to support the trio’s lilting, spacey folk-pop in the beautiful enclosure that flanks MoMA’s galleries. While there were no waves of dancing or swaying sing-alongs, you could tell the audience was paying attention. Plus, it gave Tashaki Miyaki the honor of standing alone as a piece of art, among the other modern art greats. With no openers, the night was truly Tashaki Miyaki’s, and those who stayed for the entire set were not disappointed. [CMJ]

Like Ex Hex before them, LA trio Tashaki Miyaki played the ongoing MoMA Nights series last night (August 7). Their dreamy, Mazzy Star-influenced pop was a great fit for the arty outdoor space at MoMA, and in addition to their own stuff, they threw in a cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” Pictures of the show are in this post.

Tashaki Miyaki are in NYC for the weekend, playing a couple more shows. They’ll be at The Studio at Webster Hall on Saturday (8/9) with Dinowalrus, Honey Wild, and Turnip King (tickets), and then they’ll be at Baby’s All Right on Sunday (8/10) with Tiny Ruins, Weyes Blood, and Belle Mare (tickets).
