Gaga's newest live setup will strengthen with repetition, but the experience of artRAVE was pretty impeccable once the gaggle of costumed fans were allowed into the Navy Yard. App demonstrations were being held in a small room behind the stage, and Gaga's technological portion of "ARTPOP" was explained thoroughly by women in white uniforms. The sculptures, including the Koons replica of Gaga, were ogled and photographed by all. Drinks, hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches and desserts were provided for free as ravers danced to "Empire State of Mind" and "Back That Azz Up" in the main hall. Even if the "ARTPOP" live show still needs a bit of tinkering to fully captivate, Lady Gaga showed on Sunday night that she knows how to meld low art and high art at a party.
