Studio B's lofty, 2,400-square-foot arts and performance space is the perfect place to enjoy an evening of cultured conversation and ubiquitous urbanity. Soaring ceilings craft an acoustically decadent experience, while the glossy aquamarine cement floor tempts taciturn toe-tappers to reach down and pull out their inner Bob Fosse by the bespangled ankles. Studio B's ever-evolving events calendar brings the cochlea-captivating sounds of local and national jazz, rock, folk, and instrumental groups ($5–$10 per event), such as the Carolina-based experimental folk group Songs of Water or the pop leanings of Thieves and Villains (June 23). Jazz lovers get half off tickets to Studio B's Saturday Night Jazz events ($15–$25), usually held on the third Saturday of every month. In June's offering, singers channel the chops of jazz legends Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Cab Calloway, and others in two productions of Harlem Nights, at 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on June 19. Stop by on First Fridays (the first Fridays of each month) for an aural and visual feast, replete with newly exhibited art and danceable tunes.
