Culture Works, which recently relocated inside the Dayton Arcade, is launching an “After the Levitt” concert series on Thursday, June 23rd. The series will take place inside “The Tank” – which is a very cool, new subterranean venue under the rotunda. The venue is a short walk from Levitt, and is accessed from 4th St, between Main St and Ludlow, down a stunning, new glass-walled entrance. The first concert features two talented original Dayton musicians: Anna Marie and Mariah J.
The June 23rd event serves as a “soft opening” for the series, which will go into full swing in July. These “After the Levitt” shows will take place on Thursdays from approximately 8:30-10pm. The goal is to add to the vibrancy that is already being created by Levitt Pavilion Dayton and add to the music ecosphere that Dayton is continuing to build. Admission for this series will be a small cover charge of $5 – $10 at the door, which helps pay the artists and production costs.
If you’ve never been to The Tank, it’s new eye and ear candy for downtown! The glass cube entrance is very cool, giving way to a graffiti-lined stairwell, into a swanky entrance donned with neon and a sleek bar area. (Alcohol is available for purchase by patrons over 21 years old). The Tank itself has colosseum-style seating, in an intimate, theater-in-the-round feel.
The first event celebrates a brand new album from one of Dayton’s up-and-coming r&b/soul artists, Mariah J. “Unfolding” comes out on Friday, June 24th, so this serves as a special preview listening party for patrons. Anna Marie, another rising star in the Dayton scene, will kick off at 8:30pm, which is generally around when things are ending over at Levitt Pavillion. The event wraps up by 10pm. Admission for this June 23rd concert is $5 at the door.
