On Thursdays through September 29th, dance, sing, and swing at Dumbo’s “Live at the Archway” series. Head to Brooklyn underneath the Manhattan Bridge for a weekly cabaret with free outdoor musical performances, dj sets, dance classes, and more.
These performance reflect DUMBO’s creative spirit and Brooklyn’s diverse culture and encompasses a broad range of musical genres including salsa, R&B, jazz, and classic rock, and some of today’s emerging indie bands like TIGUE on July 28.
One half new music ensemble, one half art-rock band, TIGUE has influences that span eclectic contemporary, pop and avant-garde.
