Tashaki Miyaki To Perform at MoMA

On the heels of their latest critically acclaimed 7″ release, Los Angeles based dreamy trio Tashaki Miyaki have announced they will be performing at New Yorks City’s Museum of Modern Art on August 7, 2014 as part of MoMA’s Nights Summer Music Series. Taking place every Thursday in July and August, the series features free performances, with museum admission, in the outdoor Sculpture Garden with one early set at 6:30 PM each night. This year’s collection showcases vibrant, creative women who are making their mark on the contemporary music scene. Additionally, the band will host select New York performances around the date.

Los Angeles based Tashaki Miyaki was born out of a late night jam between Lucy and Rocky in early 2011. Shortly after they started making recordings as a duo with friend and producer/engineer Joel Jerome (Dios, Babies on Acid). After posting a couple songs on bandcamp there was sudden response from bloggers and business types alike, including being flown to London to play a private event for Converse at the legendary 100 Club. Realizing they needed to fill out their live sound, they asked friend and bassist Dora Hiller to join. Since then they have recorded a self titled EP, a single (Best Friend, Luvluvluv Records), a 7″ of Everly Brothers Covers (Rough Trade’s For Us Records), a tape of all their early recordings on Burger Records, as well as toured North America and the UK. They are currently in the midst of recording their debut full length.
