Justin Timberlake performed a free concert in NYC

Justin Timberlake isn't kidding about his Southern Hospitality — the actor opened up his restaurant by that same gentile name Wednesday in New York for a free concert.

To promote Free Sol, the band signed to his Tennman Records, Timberlake tweeted out news that he'd be jumping on the microphone this week despite his torch for acting.

"Wanna check out some live music tonight?? Meet me and @freesol at 45th & 9th at 11pm," JT wrote, adding the hashtags "#bbq" and "#youdontwanttomissthis."

That was enough to sell newlyweds Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, who came to the show with her sister Kourtney in tow, according to People. Also spotted was Timberlake's "In Time" costar Amanda Seyfried.

The band and their benefactor Justin performed several new tracks, closing down the show with a "soulful" a capella version of his hit "What Goes Around ... Comes Around."
