Culture Desk Pick!

High Places and Toro Y Moi.

Free concert at The Whitney's lower gallery and sculpture court with admission. No fear, it's pay-what-you-wish on Fridays from 6-9pm. But note, there are no special tickets or reservations. So if your summer Fridays haven't started, or don't exist, jump uptown right after work to guarantee a spot downstairs.

High Places:

High Places began as an experiment in collaboration. Robert Barber grew up listening to punk and hardcore, and Mary Pearson studied bassoon performance, but both gravitated toward a DIY compositional style and a love of layers.

Toro Y Moi:

Toro Y Moi is 23-year-old Columbia, SC native Chaz Bundick. After earning a BFA in Graphic Design at The University of South Carolina, Chaz created Toro y Moi as a bedroom project that then expanded into the live performance realm.
