Avery Rosewater Opening for People Get Ready at JB’s July 30

It feels like it’s been a moment since we’ve come across Avery Rosewater in a live setting. The local outfit, fronted by Arches’ Julien Rossow-Greenberg, is a freewheelin’ rock ‘n’ roll band that doesn’t shy away from dreamy reverb on the vocals. They shared a digital single, “Jeff 24,” this past spring, which felt reminiscent of earlier War on Drugs tracks. Avery Rosewater will be opening tonight at Johnny Brenda’s for former Deli NYC print cover boys and girl, People Get Ready, who are particularly known for their entertaining live performances. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman


New Music Video: "Snakeskin" - TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb

TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb premiered a new music video, which was produced by the group and Talk Design, earlier this week over at Philebrity. It was for their track, "Snakeskin," off the band's latest EP KONG. They also shared that all five songs from the record will get their own music video and that the album will be re-issued on September 9 via local music collective American Diamond Recordings. You can catch TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb in the flesh this Sunday at 2nd St. Fest.

Video: Matt Kivel, "Insignificance"

Singer/songwriter Matt Kivel's latest full-length release, Days Of Being Wild, carefully balances ruminative acoustic ballads with modestly strummed uptempo melodies. One of the songs off the record, "Insignificance", features a streamlined electric strum that's just as tranquil, coupled with a tense, bare rhythm that fully embraces the bare essentials of nineties college rock. Kivel has just released a video for the track, which features him doing the kinds of things working musicians regularly do on a daily basis over what looks like VHS camcorder-quality footage. Days Of Being Wild is currently availale via Woodsist. 


Hot Mess Loves You Now Stereosparks

After some soul-searching and recalibration (as every finely-tuned pop rock machine requires from time to time) Hot Mess Loves You is now operating under the moniker of Stereosparks.  The Chico, CA natives decided on the name change after coming to the realization that their sound was moving in a direction that could no longer be contained beneath the Hot Mess Loves You umbrella.  "Stereosparks" is also much easier to get tattooed across your knuckles. The trio is still going to be cranking out slick, pop-forward tunes and will not be dropping the lap steel anytime soon.  They released a 3-track EP "Secret" on July 10th;  "Secret (Say You'll Stay) is the first video under the new title.  Bounce over to stereosparks.com and update all of your HMLY feeds.  -Terra James-Jura



All Your Sisters Foli and Dub Thompson Play Bottom of the Hill TONIGHT

Tonight at Bottom of the Hill you have the opportunity to enjoy a hyper local show with a couple of the Bay Area underground's coveted projects. All Your Sisters and Foli are really great bands who could probably stand to attract a little more appreciation than they do. They're not flashy or trying to rush and play all around the city for attention (not that there's anything wrong with playling shows all over the Bay Area). These bands simply sound great. We think both band's music is totally sincere and worth listening to.

Dub Thompson is a bit mysterious about their current location, but they're originally from Bloomington, Indiana. Their sound can be described as experimental dub music. It is intriguing, well produced and worth checking out as well. Bottom of the Hill has got a solid line up going on tonight. Support independent music.


Ghost & the City and Gamera Open for Shabazz Palaces TONIGHT

San Francisco based soul electronica band, Ghost & the City will be performing at The New Parish in Oakland tonight! Along with local producer and DJ, Gamera, this sultry band will be opening for the legendary hip hop virtuoso duo and Sub Pop artists, Shabazz Palaces. There are so many reasons to attend this event it's a bit overwhelming to articulate them all, but you'll probably experience one of the most nostalgic nights of your life.

Shabazz Palances is premium hip hop in a time where the definition of hip hop has nothing to do with the music and Ghost & the City will open the show with a creamy soulful flow that will allow you to groove through a night of great music. Make sure you head out to this event. The Deli Magazine San Francisco will be there! -je

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Armani White

Born into a family of horn players, it wasn’t until discovering Eminem while driving with his mother (of all places) that local emcee Armani White began finding his musical voice and putting words together into rhymes. Having lived in Philly all his life, the young rapper and recent Deli Philly Featured Artist Poll Winner has plenty to say about his hometown - good and bad. You can learn about the up-and-coming artist, his music, his crew LegendBound, and much more in our interview HERE.


Free Download: "Falling" (Julee Cruise Cover) - Resistor

You can also catch the group performing it live this evening at Silk City.
