GALERIA DE SIXPOINT
Live at the Archway season sponsor Sixpoint is hosting its first annual Sixpoint Art Show, featuring artwork submissions from artists and fans that show what “Beer Is Culture” means to them. Sixpoint knows that the right beer at the right time can inspire people to create unique pieces of artwork. The Sixpoint Art Show is part Art Show and part fan-driven competition, with top finalists winning cash prizes of up to $1,000 and the grand prize winner also getting their artwork on a limited release Small Batch can. Submission details will be announced soon and can be found at Sixpoint.com and on Instagram at @Sixpoint.

PEOPLE'S CHAMPS
People’s Champs is inspired by the idea that music is for everyone. The band combines a creative blend of analog and digital production, songwriting that cuts to the core of the human experience and unstoppable dance rhythms to create a truly original sound. With influences as wide-ranging as Sharon Jones, tUnE-yArDs, William Onyeabor, and Prince, critics are calling People’s Champs “A dance party waiting to happen” (Consequence of Sound) and "...somewhere between Budos Band & the Flaming Lips" (Deli Magazine). The band features experimental soul singer Starr Busby, best known for her work with Gorillaz and Esperanza Spalding. People’s Champs’ horn section works in-studio with Beyoncé Knowles and performed/arranged key parts on the Grammy Award-winning song “Love on Top.” They also tour with Boy George & Culture Club. Members of People's Champs have also performed with artists including Lorde, SZA, Moses Sumney and other notables. People’s Champs has appeared at BRIC’s Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, NYC Winter Jazzfest, Lincoln Center, The Wassaic Project Festival, International Festival of Arts and Ideas, The Guggenheim Museum, The MoMA and has toured throughout the East Coast and Midwest. People's Champs released their first full-length album—“American Dreamers” in 2015 and are currently ramping up for their second full-length album, due out in Fall 2022.
