Smack Mellon presents the latest sounds by new musicians every first Thursday of the month along with a beer tasting courtesy of Kelso of Brooklyn. The Press Play concert series is held in conjunction with the Dumbo First Thursday Gallery Walk.

LISTEN TO CABIRIA HERE

Cabiria’s melodic sound is captured through the powerful operatic vocals of Rachel Jane Henry, who has been trained classically.  Part of the band's characteristic sound is the interplay between Rachel's intense, high-register lyrical melodies, and Meredith Bogacz’s sullen and seductive violin playing. The main accompaniment is the nylon string guitar played by Claudio Morsella, adding hints of Flamenco and Spanish technique to the brooding quality of Cabiria’s sound.  The trip-hop influence manifests through the combination of live drum and bass, defining this genre for Cabiria.

 

Two Trees Management, in collaboration with participating DUMBO-based galleries, is proud to host an evening of art and culture as part of its series, “First Thursday,” the monthly DUMBO gallery walk.   First Thursday is a festive monthly occasion for visitors to immerse themselves in DUMBO’s extensive art and cultural offerings. Stimulating and fun, participating galleries open their art-filled spaces and celebrate with receptions, live musical performances and artist/curator talks. Neighborhood bars, restaurants and stores join in First Thursday by offering individual promotions and specialties.
