From the Top: Break-Up Jams

WED // JUL 24 // 06:30PM

Have you ever been caught ‘killing yourself softly with sad songs’ after a bad break-up? Do you have your sad Spotify playlist already cued for just such an occasion?  

Your hosts, Chinisha & Greg, know all about heartbreak, too.  We're bringing you a night of sad songs that hurt so good and we've curated a hell of a Listening Party to do it.  Greg leads us in another magical, musical demo on the caveat stage with a little music theory of what we love about our favorite break-up jams.

Social neuroscientist Dr. Bianca Acevedo joins us to bust down the science of why love feels so good and heartbreak hurts so bad.

p.s. will there be a bonus Prince set of sad songs?  Find out on 7/24!

Bianca P. Acevedo, Ph.D., (B.A. New York University; M.A., Ph.D., Stony Brook University) is a Researcher at the Neuroscience Research Institute (NRI) of the University of California, Santa Barbara, a Visiting Scholar at NYU’s Center for Neural Science, and a private consultant. She is a trained social neuroscientist specializing in human attachment processes including romantic love, sexuality, and empathy; sensory processing sensitivity; and yoga and meditation. She conducted the first neuro-imaging studies of long-term romantic love. This resulted in her being awarded the 2012 International Women in Science Award. She has published several widely-recognized articles on the Science of Love and being a Highly Sensitive Person, which have appeared in media outlets around the globe. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Health, and most recently the Alzheimer’s Association. 


Part listening party, part live demo, and hilarious talk about music, politics, and culture in between, From the Top explores contemporary music and its impact on culture (and America's impact on it). Each month, our hosts - Greg Howard and Chinisha - break down a musical genre, sound, or song in Caveat’s version of your favorite basement music room, featuring live demos from musicians and conversations with experts.  From blues & soul to r&b, The Minneapolis Sound to hip-hop, New Jack Swing, rap, and beyond, From the Top explores the spaces, technology, economics, and people that have built the foundations for much of popular music & culture.
