Japanese Breakfast with Pura Coco
Dive into the technicolor sound of two-time Grammy-nominated indie pop artists Japanese Breakfast. From the optimistic, synth-fueled nostalgia of 2021’s Jubilee to the heartfelt melancholy of Psychopomp and Soft Sounds from Another Planet, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner (author of the bestselling memoir Crying in H Mart), Peter Bradley, Craig Hendrix, and Deven Craige bring the sonic texture and energy of dreampop to the Momentary Green for one unforgettable night.
Kicking off the performance is alternative R&B singer Pura Coco. A passionate songwriter and vocalist, Pura Coco combines her Latin culture and Southern upbringing to create her unique sound.
This concert is presented as part of the Momentary’s Live on the Green Concert Series on the Coca-Cola Stage.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
From the moment she began writing her new album, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner knew that she wanted to call it Jubilee. After all, a jubilee is a celebration of the passage of time—a festival to usher in the hope of a new era in brilliant technicolor. Zauner’s first two albums garnered acclaim for the way they grappled with anguish; Psychopomp was written as her mother underwent cancer treatment, while Soft Sounds From Another Planet took the grief she held from her mother‘s death and used it as a conduit to explore the cosmos. Now, at the start of a new decade, Japanese Breakfast is ready to fight for happiness, an all-too-scarce resource in our seemingly crumbling world.
Jubilee was released by Dead Oceans in June and quickly became one of the most praised albums of 2021, earning a Grammy nomination for “Best Alternative Music Album” alongside the band’s Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist.”
2021 also saw Zauner release the widely lauded, New York Times Best Selling memoir Crying in H Mart, which she’s currently adapting for the screen for MGM’s Orion Pictures. Crying in H Mart is an unflinching, powerful memoir about growing up Korean American, losing her mother, and forging her own identity. She also released the original soundtrack to the anticipated video game Sable, which Entertainment Weekly compared to David Bowie’s 1977 masterwork Low and Pitchfork said is “a streamlined glimpse into her versatility as a narrative artist.”
Born in New York City, alternative R&B singer Pura Coco takes both her Latin culture and her Southern upbringing to create her unique sound. Now based in Northwest Arkansas, this passionate songwriter and vocalist continues to work on her craft, conveying a multitude of emotions that further connects with people through her music.
