Dance

Weekend Warrior, October 14 - 16

It’s been another amazing year of music for us here at The Deli Philly. We are now into our 8th year of covering the local music scene, and it’s been an honor and privilege to share in this wonderful experience with you as the community continues to flourish in so many beautifully creative ways. It’s also that time of year again when our dedicated staff and I like to take this opportunity to let loose and celebrate the work that we’ve accomplished over this past year, and of course, we’d like you to join us. The whole Deli gang and I are quite amped about our upcoming Anniversary Bash, happening this Saturday night at PhilaMOCA with Suburban Living, LOUDS, and The Retinas, and we hope that you are too! We look forward to many more years of discovering the best emerging indie artists that Philly has to offer with you. So come out tomorrow night, bring the good vibes, and let’s get weird! And yes, there will be cake – specially made by yours truly! ;-) - Q.D. Tran

New Track: "Smoke & Drive Around" - Brandon Can't Dance

Smooth-talking, electro-dance vibes emit from “Smoke & Drive Around,” the new single from Brandon Can’t Dance. The song is featured on his forthcoming album Graveyard of Good Times, slated for release on January 13 via Lucky Number. The accompanying video, which premiered via Noisey, keeps things simple as the slinky weekend beats takeover, erasing one’s weekly stressors. Brandon Can’t Dance will be performing this evening at The Overlook Hotel, alongside QQQ, Hallowed Bells, Repelican, Tuff Turf, 185668232, and Anklepants.

New Music Video: "Bring Yo Friends" - Tunji Ige

Josh “Glassface” Goldenberg merges an interesting series of imagery in the video for “Bring Yo Friends,” found on Tunji Ige’s mixtape Missed Calls. An old-school premiere countdown opens the proceedings. Then, a mixture of black & white, low-key Brooklyn bridge performance visuals, interspersed with flashes of widespread settings and morphing animation, give the production a chill but hyperactive touch.

   

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
