Concerts in the Garden on Tuesday, August 26, with The Mystical Overtones will take stage at 6 pm, followed by She Keeps Bees at 7 pm. Brooklyn-based She Keeps Bees have recorded and released music made at home since 2006. The Guardian said that "they're like the White Stripes in reverse." Drowned in Sound said of Larrabee that "she has amazing control over her vocals, able to simultaneously be fiery and reserved, seductive and vaguely crude", and fellow Brooklyn musician Sharon Van Etten said "she has one of the best voices I have ever heard and she has more soul in one finger than most female singers have in our scene." The New York Times's ArtsBeat compared her to PJ Harvey, but added that "far from Ms. Harvey’s theatrical poise, Ms. Larrabee is loose, vehement and unchoreographed, jittering around the stage."
Guests are invited to bring a lawn chair or a blanket and take a place in the Museum's sculpture garden.
Tickets are $10, or season ticket packets for $55. Packets are only available until 5 pm the day before each show.
