Reminder! First GFP showcase Dec. 5th!

Here's a reminder that our first ever Guilt Free Pleasures showcase is THIS SATURDAY, Dec. 5th, here in Brooklyn:

Dec. 5th - 7:30pm doors, 8pm show - $5

An intimate night of folk/alt-country performances at a private art space in Brooklyn, NY, hosted by Guilt Free Pleasures ( and featuring:

Matt Jones immediately sets himself apart from the other throngs of singer-songwriters with his rich, dark but whimsical orchestral folk; his nimble-fingered guitar plucking; his unique, delicate voice; and lyrics that are some of the most deeply expressive, complex metaphors of his generation. Mesmerizing from his very first notes, the initial attraction quickly turns into full blown addiction and people have been known to use the word "genius" to describe him.

The Reverend John Delore is Americana at its best. His blues-tinged alt-country rumbles with wistful tales of yearning. His gritty vocals have been likened to those of Hayes Carll, Mason Jennings and Steve Earle. Don't be surprised if his music instantly transports you to a Southern dive bar in the 1970s.

Drunken Barn Dance's raw ruckus folk rolls with unbridled honesty and without subterfuge, yet is catchy as hell. Sharing many attributes with the folk legends of old, it's impossible not to enjoy this incredibly relatable and often nostalgic music.

The secret location is revealed to those who RSVP via email.
