🎶 Get Groovy with FREE Performances by JOATA, Katy Rea, and The Morning Sea at Our Winter of Love Market (Sun, 2/11) !

This weekend’s totally psychedelic Greenpointers Winter of Love Market at the Greenpoint Loft (67 West Street, 5th Floor) on Sunday February 11th (1pm-7pm) will feature three live music acts throwing down some groovy jams as the soundtrack to your eating, drinking, photobooth-ing, frolicking and shopping. And, did we mention it’s FREE? You can find out more details on our market vendors and special guests in this previous post.

💗 🌼 ✌ 💗 ✌ 💗  🌼  💗 ✌ 🌼 💗

Brooklyn-based JOATA will be jammin’ out the Market from 3pm-3:30pm. JOATA is Puerto Rican indie pop singer/songwriter Jose Oyola. His music blends Caribbean rhythms with hip hop and indie rock, with a fun bilingual flair. And many of his tracks have a definite 60s vibe, feelin’ like a stripped-down solo version of jangly peace-and-love rockers The Zombies or The Byrds.

From 4pm-4:30pm, you’ll get to hear singer songwriter Katy Rea, whose lyrics are both political and poetic. Her folksy crooning with mixed with a fire-y and rich indie pop sound is sure to put you in a nostalgic mood, proving that feminist rock n’ roll was definitely not just a 60’s and 70’s fad, (wo)man.

And to close out the flower power-filled day, The Morning Sea will treat everyone to their bluesy and folksy stylings—sort of a modern take on vintage Bob Dylan—from 5pm-5:30pm.
