🎶 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.

The Greenpoint Loft (67 West Street) will become our sky high Woodstock stuffed with more than 60 local vendors and plenty of positive vybz. RSVP here!

Live music will help everyone hang loose and feel the peace and love while rivers of refreshing craft beer by Greenpoint Beer & Ale will keep the aura wavy. Mugs of mulled hot cider with Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum will help you tune in, turn on, and drop out of the stress of your week, and a psychedelic flower power-inspired art installation photo booth will let you capture all the funky memories.

Free activities including massages, henna, tarot card readings, digital avatar creation, professional photo booth, and nail art will be farther out than the Fab Four, with more turbulent surprises to come.
