Jarvis Cocker, lead singer of Pulp, will play live on the Whitney Museum’s fourth floor, according to a source with knowledge of the event. The British musician will perform Apr. 5–8 with his side project, Relaxed Muscle, alongside Michael Clark’s dance company, organized as part of the Whitney Biennial.
Cocker formed Relaxed Muscle in 2002, following Pulp’s break up. He performs as “Darren Spooner,” using a violent performance style and over-the-top goth costumes and make-up. The group has maintained a relatively low profile since their sole album release in 2003.
Pulp reunited in 2011 after a nine-year hiatus and is slated to play at next month’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Tickets are required to attend, and advance tickets are sold out. A limited number of tickets become available each day of the performance.
