Times New Viking is a Columbus, Ohio-based trio who play punk-infused indie-rock with messy boy-girl vocals and a lo-fi sound. ACME performs Jefferson Friedman's third string quartet which juxtaposes aggressive post-punk influences with delicate harmonic and melodic textures.
Whitney Live and The Wordless Music Series take over the Whitney's indoor/outdoor Lower Gallery every Friday in June for shows pairing innovative rock and electronic music with adventuresome chamber music from the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) . Hosted by Jad Abumrad from WNYC's Radio Lab.
Whitney Live is free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays from 6-9 pm. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are not accepted.
