🎶 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.

Tonight! The Second Annual It’s Friday, I’m (Not) In Love Anti-Valentine’s Party!

The last thing you need to worry about in 2017 is Valentine’s Day, a made-up holiday about a four-letter word. Avoid all the mushy stuff and dance your way into oblivion at littlefield on tonight (Friday, February 10), and celebrate singledom.

DJ Gordon Gloom (Feeling Gloomy, YDH2S) will be crowding the floor with songs of heartache and desire from the 80s to today, $6-8 drink specials will keep you (in)appropriately lubricated, a cleansing anti-love ritual will provide closure and catharsis, and our photo booth will prove to your ex(es) that you’re totally doing just fine on your own really just fine thank you very much.

Wear black. All black. Need a reason? Every living thing on earth dies alone. Creativity will be rewarded.

The rest is up to you. Rebel. Renew. Rebound.
