Live at The Archway’s weekly cabaret on Thursday, June 15 features Rodes Rollins, the psychedelic rock, Americana-inspired singer-songwriter who lives both in Brooklyn and Los Angeles (via a detour to Buenos Aires). Her debut EP, Young Adult, was called “stunning.”

From Paste Magazine: “With sultry vocals reminiscent of Nancy Sinatra, Rodes Rollins is creating music fit for a modern cowgirl.”

During the performance, the public is invited to collaborate in creating a giant Arch Mermaid with award-winning Brooklyn illustrator/ author Melanie Hope Greenberg at the pop-up gallery known as “The Space Station.” Greenberg famously depicted Coney Island’s “Mermaids on Parade” along with more than a dozen picture books and hundreds of illustrations for organizations including UNICEF and the Children’s Defense Fund. Her latest illustrated book, “Americanly,” has been called a “must have” by the Nerdy Book Club.
