The Deli Philly's Anniversary Bash w/Suburban Living, LOUDS & The Retinas at PhilaMOCA This Saturday!

We hope that everyone is enjoying the lovely fall weather, and getting in a great mood this week as we prepare for The Deli Philly’s 8th Anniversary Bash this Saturday, October 15 with our friends at PhilaMOCA! We’ve already shared that the post-garage, slacker rock of The Retinas and the joyous indie pop of LOUDS will be joining us in celebrating this momentous occasion. And now, we are psyched to announce that our pals Suburban Living will be headlining the evening’s festivities.
After spinning the righteous tunes for last year’s bash (which was an absolute blast), we were happy to hear that Wesley Bunch and the gang wanted to return once again for a special full-band performance. Come join us for the feels & experience why you’ll never want to miss a Deli Philly Anniversary Bash again! (More info about the party HERE.) Much love! - Q.D. Tran

Announcing The Deli Philly's Anniversary Bash w/LOUDS, The Retinas & More at PhilaMOCA!

We are very excited to announce our return to PhilaMOCA on Saturday, October 15 for The Deli Philly’s Anniversary Bash! Joining us this year will be the glorious indie-pop sounds of LOUDS and the post-garage rock of The Retinas, both of whom have also held Record of the Month honors for their albums If More People Bought Art More People Would Buy Art and chaba. We’ll also have more special guests and treats for you that evening; however, we’ll be announcing them as we get a little closer to the show. Until then, you can check out more deets about our anniversary celebration HERE!

Weekend Warrior, July 1 - 4

The joyous sounds of LOUDS will be opening the festivities tomorrow evening at Johnny Brenda’s. I’m certainly digging the first taste of their upcoming album Charm Up! You should expect more of a sampling tonight. They’ll be opening for headliner Ron Gallo, former Philly folky/bluesman turned Nashville garage rocker. Sandwiched between the two will be psych-punks Acid Dad, whom you may recognize from the cover of our current Deli Best of NYC print edition. No worries - you have the long weekend to recover. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Alexis V.

The Dove & The Wolf Opening for LOUDS at Boot & Saddle April 29

Delicately beautiful layers of harmony shine through on Parisian transplants The Dove & The Wolf’s sound. There’s a natural ascending strength that gathers as the tender, rolling, folky jangle enhances the tightly entwined vocals lifting into a subconscious sojourn. Tonight, the direction-changing, exuberant Brooks brothers-led LOUDS is also headlining the bill, potentially offering a peak into their upcoming album CHARM UP! Myrrias open the evening as entrancing vocals team with a steady grip of psych/dream-pop instrumentation, drawing you into their depths. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Free Download: "Speak" - LOUDS

After releasing their debut EP If More People Bought Art More People Would Buy Art, which became The Deli Philly's August 2015 Record of the Month, LOUDS spent the last year building out their studio in Port Richmond and refining their recording and production skills. Below is the group's first sampling, "Speak," which is avaialable for free download and will appear on their forthcoming full-length album CHARM UP!. You'll probably notice a shift from electro-pop to a more organic 60's/70's rock-tinged sound, a result of brothers Charlie & Petie Brooks working with a full band this time around. You can catch the gang live on Friday, April 29 at Boot & Saddle with The Dove & The Wolf and Myrrias.
