Looks like the Museum of Modern Art isn’t the only New York museum hosting performances by cult European musicians next month. Rumor has it that Jarvis Cocker, the English frontman of the band Pulp, will play a set at the Whitney Museum on April 5 through 8. Cocker is expected to play with his sometimes-band Relaxed Muscle alongside Michael Clark‘s dance company, reports Art in America. Clark is set to debut his company’s new American wing as part of the Whitney Biennial‘s rotating performance series on the museum’s fourth floor.
Cocker performs in full Goth costume and makeup when he hits the stage with Relaxed Muscle, a group that has maintained a low profile since its album release in 2003, according to AiA. Cocker’s other project, Pulp, reunited in 2011 after nine years apart and is expected to play at next month’s Coachella music festival. Cocker will also perform with Pulp in New York City on April 10 and 11 at Radio City Music Hall — those performances are sold out.
Those looking to rock with Cocker will have to stand by if they don’t already have tickets to one of Clark’s performances. A select number of tickets will be made available the day of each show.
