LIVE AT THE ARCHWAY: LOS CUMPLEAÑOS + FOGOAZUL
FOGO AZUL 6:00PM IN THE PEARL STREET TRIANGLE
LOS CUMPLEAÑOS 6:30PM IN THE ARCHWAY
ARTIST INTERACTIVE AT THE SPACE STATION: POP UP GALLERY + LIVE ART EXPERIENCE ALL NIGHT

Herald the launch of season three of Live at the Archway with the all female, Brazilian drumline FogoAzul! They kick off the celebrations in the Pearl Street Triangle at 6pm, and will march into the Archway for a set by Los Cumpleaños.

Los Cumpleaños play classic era cumbia, porro, son caribeño, salsa criolla and bullerengue from Colombia with cutting-edge psychedelic new wave synths and retro organ sounds together with the energy of a downtown punk rock band, combining heavy grooves and experimental sounds into a energetic, danceable, one-of-a-kind musical experience. Los Cumpleaños features Nestor Gomez from Barranquilla, Colombia (percussion / vocals), Lautaro Burgos from Chaco, Argentina (drumset) as well as Eric Lane (keyboard) and Alex Asher (trombone), both from the United States. The members of Los Cumpleaños have played with a variety of notable artists including Anival Velazquez, Lizandro Meza, Juan Piña, Alfredo Gutierrez, MAKU Soundsystem, Orquesta Dee Jay, Beyoncé, Joan as Police Woman, People’s Champs and The Superpowers.

The Space Station, by This Friday or Next Friday, premieres at this year’s Live at the Archway. Tfnf is likely the tiniest, most inconsequential art gallery in DUMBO, Brooklyn, probably in NYC, and maybe on the face of the earth. It was founded by Nathan Sinai Rayman, and he runs it with Zach Seeger, his Director of Programs.

Live at the Archway–a curated series from the DUMBO Improvement District & The Lighthouse–showcases the best of DUMBO and Brooklyn talent, presenting a broad range of music and performance genres. This season brings sizzling salsa, Colombian cumbia, swing dancing, world roots music, sultry R&B, an Italian modern dance troupe, puppetry, funk, DJs and more. With beer, wine and bites from The Lighthouse and epic scenery below the Manhattan Bridge, it’s the best place to be every Thursday night. Concerts & events take place on Thursday evenings at 6:00 p.m.
