Free Advertising Thread for Porchfest Artists, Porch Hosts and Food Purveyors

Many Oakhurst Porchfest porch hosts have already put chalk to sidewalk or ink to signage to promote their band for this coming Saturday’s event. Y’all rule.

But we on the Porchfest organizing committee are a 21st century crowd – for better or worse – and so we also respect the sheer power of the interwebs to get the word out.

This is where DM can help out.

So porch hosts, bands, artists and food flingers with associated deals for Saturday’s event: use this thread to promote yourself. Tell your fellow neighbors where you’ll be and what you’ll be offering, so they can be sure to stop by.

  1. 3-5pm at 208 4th Ave. is your 3rd annual Porchfest Open Jam!

    Bring yer axe!

    Share a song!

    All musicians welcome!

    Like Porchfest at large, we’ve been bigger each subsequent year. Still room for more players!

    The anticipated ringers are familiar with popular Americana, folk, blues, rock, country, etc. and we’ll do our best to fake whatever else you bring with you.

    If you have a folding chair you may want to bring it, just in case…

    Hope to hear you Saturday!
