"The museums are trying to be cool," Seva Granik, who was in charge of booking the last season of the Warm-Up parties, put it more bluntly. "That’s all it is. And everyone’s so happy. Bands think: ‘Oh my God, I need to play in a museum.’ It obviously adds to the aura of the artist in most people’s eyes. And then agents can say, ‘Hey, this guy played MoMA! Or the Whitney or whatever. We don’t want the $2,000 you’re offering, but $4,000.’ It’s a never-ending circle jerk of these institutions. But it works."
