Business Description

Brooklyn painters, bands, and comedians have a home base in the form of kaleidoscopic arts hub Cameo, hidden in the Lovin’ Cup Café. The Cup, named for that ageless Stones jam, plays gracious co-host to the performance space-gallery-recording-studio, dedicated to the still-kicking disciplines of artisanal handicraft and classic, shake-the-floors rock. The casual air coloring Cameo’s spacious gallery is a fresh alternative to the insular Chelsea crawl, and the venue’s sky-high ceilings allow for the sort of natural, Spector-sized reverb that haunts aspiring rockers’ dreams. The venue resembles a black box but functions as a high-design soundstage, providing an ideal showcase for local talents with an hour and a mic.
