Summers in New York are meant for events like MoMA Nights, when attendees can enjoy great live music in the museum’s gorgeous Sculpture Garden every Thursday. Kicking off this year’s season, which celebrates women in music, is Brooklyn’s own Au Revoir Simone, the refreshingly dreamy electro-pop band that is fresh off the release of last year’s excellent Move in Spectrums. Their sound is not only perfect for a garden party but also the beginning of a wild summer lineup that includes Ex Hex, La Luz, Frankie Cosmos, and Widowspeak. Since the show is included with museum admission, you can check out the Lygia Clark exhibition or Robert Heinecken retrospective beforehand to stock up on all the culture you’ll need for your week.
