The Feelies are used to playing in clubs and concert halls. But next week, the band’s modern musical art will be on display in an unusual setting: The Whitney Museum of American Art.
The band — comprising guitarists Glenn Mercer and Bill Million, along with Brenda Sauter on bass, Stanley Demeski on drums and Dave Weckerman on percussion — is giving a rare acoustic performance at the Whitney a week from Friday in the museum’s lower-level store and cafe area.
The space, which regularly hosts rock and classical ensembles, is tight and seating is limited. But this should still be a good warm-up (or more likely, a dress rehearsal) for their Fourth of July weekend shows at Maxwell’s in Hoboken.
The Feelies perform at 7 p.m. Friday, June 26. At the Whitey Museum of American Art, 945 Madison Ave., Manhattan. Free with museum admission, tickets are available on day of show only, starting at 1 p.m. For more information, click here.
The Feelies also perform July 2-4 at Maxwell’s, 1039 Washington St., Hoboken. July 3 is sold out, but tickets remain for the other two shows. $25. Click here to buy.
