IMG_8908Bjork and the Choir from her home country, Iceland performing Biophilia: Live at NY Hall of Science, Queens, NY

It’s our 4th concert of Bjork. I feel blessed to go see her. Her Freedom and Beauty Completely Shakes Me. Her Fearless and Honest Voice Makes Me Cry. She is Way WAY Ahead of  Where We Are at Right Now. I Completely Admire and Am Deeply Impressed. She makes me feel Humble. Her Intellectually Genius Musicality. Her Desire and Curiosity to know Technology. Her Restless Research.

She Rocks My World. Now She Rocks the Universe.

IMG_9809Kraftwerk, Die Robotor, 1978 at Kraftwek Music Festival, MoMa PS1.

No, we were not able to get tickets to Kraftwerk’s Retrospective Spectaculars at MoMa. But we definitely checked out  the 2 day Kraftwerk Music Festival to celebrate this awesome event at MoMa’s sister museum, PS1 in Queens on Sunday. “All ages are welcome” is my kind of event so we can take Gael with us to have him experience something more stimulating, creative and out of ordinary.  On top of it, the hosting DJ for the Sunday event was mine and Emi’s all time favorite, Francois K, the father and the house DJ of our much beloved good old time dance hall, Body and Soul. What good fun and memories we have there…!!  The weather was fantastic hang out outdoor and also it was a definitely event we wanted to check out. It has been a while having gone to listen to Francois K and this tie was even more special that he was spinning all of his own spin on 8 albums of Kraftwerks that have been loved by millions of people for all these years.

IMG_9719The dome was originally built for PS1′s Sunday Sessions.  Juan Atkins on Saturday and Francois K on Sunday were spinning inside along the multiple images of Kraftwerk. Drop Dead Gorgeous.

IMG_2841Awesome Breezy Entrance at MoMA PS1.  Warm Up Ps1:  the Ultimate Summer Party for NYC!

I can’t believe it’s already the 14th year now MoMA PS1 is holding this music, dance, art installation that’s all happening in one gigantic outdoor party on Saturdays all summer long at this cool industrial area in Queens, NYC!!!  When we all heard then MoMA was branching out a sister MoMA out to Queens: PS1 taking over formal Public School #1 on Queens, We all were bit skeptical even though there are a few prominent Art and Design institutional places like Noguchi museum in the same neighbor hood.  \It felt bit out of the way compare to the mail one is on posh and touristy uptown in Manhattan. But PS1 had proved that was only a worry that we didn’t have to have at all after all. PS1 now has grown into a proud and even more rebellious and interesting little yet not so little sister of MoMA fueling Powerful Energy of New and Young Generation of Cool NYC peeps. And  maybe even of the “World” as you will be surprised to see and hear how many international visitors at not just “Warm” but maybe more of “Hot” summer Dance parties that PS 1 is housing year after year.  Every year PS1 holds a competition to design and doll up their envious grand schemed concrete and grabbled awesomely modern yard, and I personally like to thank to MomA doing this so as this is an absolutely a brilliant idea and also a another definite reason what attracts me and sure all other visitors to go visit PS1 as the yearly brand new Summer installation is something that you must not miss.

This year’s simple yet breezy and green installation is another winner that you want to see and I highly recommend the actual exhibitions that are going on in this beautiful formal public school space as it’s filled with much entertaining (I rather like to call it entertaining! ) Rayan Trecartin’s Any Ever : the short film series, and my absolute favorite of all, a screening of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s The Holy Mountain ( the screening ends on July 24th) which I ended up buying the DVD at the bookstore is another one you should not miss!!

The Warm Up Summer party at PS1 runs until the September 3rd with various DJS from around the world, So you haven’t missed much but certain exhibitions will do end at certain point, so if you are not sure what to do on Saturdays, pS1 Warm up party will be the perfect thing to do for this entire summer!

Now I like to share some pics from my visit to PS 1 Warm Up party this Saturday, July 16!

IMG_2840Yes the kid are welcome, but if you like to bring your little ones go early and live early. It get’s bit intense for the little ones later on. The party hour is 2-9 pm.

IMG_2844Hay Garden. No Smoking!
