Vox Pop is a coffee-house, a bookstore and a publishing company located in Brooklyn, NY. They are a community-empowering, retail-revolution, live-event-loving, info-shop dedicated to "vox pop," Latin shorthand for "voice of the people."

All genres are welcome, with most shows falling in the folk/acoustic genre, as well as a healthy mix of punk, jazz, hip-hop, bluegrass, and many more. Local, regional and touring acts are encouraged to submit.

Live music takes place 4-7 nights a week, with up to 4 artists per night. This venue throws wild, live music and literary events, and hosts an open mike every Sunday evening. Young families gather every Tuesday, in the late morning. Vox Pop is child-friendly, and has a wonderful "kid's area" in the back with pillows, games, books, and art supplies to keep your little one happy.

Vox Pop can accommodate a capacity of just over 50 people, set lengths run about 40 minutes, and they prefer original music if possible. They have a moderate PA system available with two microphones.

Artists will be compensated for their performances - usually a healthy split of the door (plus free dinner and coffee in the store!) They like people who can co-promote with them. They're into flyering and putting together the right kind of acts into one night so that it flows and people stay to hear everyone.

They offer fair-trade certified coffee drinks, and all-natural, healthy food. They also offer books and newspapers that surpass the limits of information offered by the conglomerate media. And with the new Instabook machine, Vox Pop offers a real print-on-demand option for any writer who wants their paperback book printed on the spot!
