Warm Up 2010 At MoMA PS1 Releases Schedule

    For years now, the line between “indie rock” and “high art” has been getting blurrier. An early harbinger of this trend has been the MoMA-curated Warm-Up series, which today announced its 2010 line-up. The intimidatingly hip series, now in its thirteenth year, features a variety of carefully curated DJ sets performed in the courtyard of Long Island City’s PS1. This year’s line-up, put together by some of the world’s hippest executives (higher-ups at True Panther, XL, and DFA, amongst others) will feature “various live/DJ sets” (whatever that means) from a bunch of untouchably awesome motherfuckers–including Animal Collective, ?uestlove, and more. The accumulated cool alone should do wonders for offsetting that oppressive mid-summer heat.
