This weekend, MoMA PS1, along with the record shop Other Music, will host the third annual Come Together: Music Festival and Label Market at the museum. The two-day festival will feature live performances, film workshops, and panels celebrating local and international music communities. Alongside the festival, over 75 record labels will be present for a label market.
Live performances will take place in the VW dome and feature artists such as Black Sabbath Cover Band Rehearsal, Barrie, Marissa Nadler, Gong Gong Gong, Tabby Wakes, and more. In addition, a number of DJ sets will go on stage, some like NegroClash, celebrating Black electronic dance music and focusing on musicians of color. Some panel discussions include a conversation with Bunny Michael, Raven Stralow, and Erika Santoro, focusing on health and wellness in creative communities of color, moderated by Maluca Mala; a discussion with recording artist and disco producer Kenton Nix; and much more. Suffragette City will host a zine-making workshop, and vocalist Charmaine Lee will lead a performance-lecture focused on the voice as a polyphonic instrument. In addition, the festival will host an advance screening of the film Carmine Street Guitars before its premiere at Film Forum on April 24. A zine designed by MoMA Ps1 and Other Music will be available at the festival for free.
