The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge is a public plaza in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s on Water St between Anchorage Place and Adams St.


THE BAND. With an unbridled passion and soul-baring rawness, Michael Blume’s music teems with honeyed vocals, soulful scatting, and thoughtful, socially conscious lyrics that are both personal and universal. Selling out back-to-back shows at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom and performing at major music festivals across the country including South by Southwest, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza and Firefly, he enchants audiences with confessional and inspirational performances. With a musical background rooted in a cappella, Blume effortlessly produces complex vocal arrangements that showcase his comprehensive musicianship and perfectly complement his stellar range. 

THE DJ.  Dan Edinberg is a producer, composer, and bassist residing in Brooklyn.  Active in the music community for the last 20 years, he is most known as bassist/keyboardist/vocalist with The Stepkids, the psychedelic soul trio singed to Stones Throw Records.  Drawing from a wide array of influences including jazz, r+b, hip hop, disco, electro, 1980’s house music, afrobeats, and reggae, you can expect the unexpected during his DJ sets.

THE ARTIST. Emily Jean Ullrich is a Brooklyn based mixed media artist. Born and raised in Illinois, Ulrich moved to New York City in 2002 to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion photographer. Her passion for the occult and exploring the magical side of life, lead her to develop these unique pieces that are at the confluence of painting and collage. In these series, "tunnel vision" Ulrich explores what different perspectives mean and how they distort reality. These large glitter creations allow the viewer to get lost in a magical alternate reality.

THE GALLERY. Every Live at the Archway, Tfnf’s The Space Station pops up in the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge  Brainchild of artist Nathan Sinai Rayman and with a footprint of only 32 square feet, Tfnf’s The Space Station replicates (in flat pack, modular, franchisable form) his DUMBO gallery This Friday or Next Friday – “likely the tiniest, most inconsequential gallery in NYC, maybe on the face of the Earth”. Each week, we present an exhibition featuring a DUMBO-based artist and invite the public to create a collaborative piece with the artist over the course of the evening.
