DC Area Readers/Fans' Poll Results! Topping the list - Shumaun, Dr. Robinson's Fiasco, and Thaylobleu!

Hey, DC, Baltimore, and Richmond readers! The Deli DC Area's Readers' Poll has officially concluded and we have our winners. Thanks to everyone for paticipating and voting and congrats to the victors!

First Place: Topping the list with 253 votes, Shumaun rocked their way to the top with a special blend of progressive and alt rock, producing and releasing a fantastic debut album last November. Reminiscent in equal parts of Rush and Breaking Benjamin, this quartet is topping the request chart for Rockfile Radio and are playing a ton of shows, so you literally can't miss them if you tried!

Second Place: Coming in at number two with 124 votes is Chantilly's own Dr. Robinson's Fiasco. This trio's sound mixes in element of alt and surf on a bed of pop rock, creating an exciting, feel-good musicality. Their latest single came out in May, so give it a listen below and catch one of their frequent performances in the area.

Third Place: Closing out the top three with 108 votes, the District's Thaylobleu proves that karma and hard work get results. Promoting and complimenting other local acts on social media and playing a handful of shows each month has built the goodwill they need to get their kickass tunes to the masses and dominate our poll. It's been a while since the funky jam rock group has put anything out, so fingers crossed for 2016. Keep it up, fellas!

Honorale Mentions:

These guys worked especially hard to promote the poll and they deserve some love, too, especially because the race was so close.

4. The Duskwhales -103 votes

5. Big Mama Shakes - 93 votes

6. Goldrush - 88 votes

If you're as much of a music nerd as I am and want to see the categorical breakdowns, check 'em here:

Alt Rock - Hardcore/Metal - Hip Hop/World - Electronic - Indie Pop - Indie Rock - Post Punk - Roots Music

Huge thanks to everyone who supported this special contest. The Deli Magazine loves each and every one of you and hope you found some delicious music from your local scenes. We hope you'll follow along for the year and see you next for another great annual poll! -Jonathan Goodwin

Folk trio WILD release "Vagabond", shows in Los Angeles and New York

Los Angeles folk trio WILD got started in different areas of the music industry: Kristina Antuna tracked vocals for EDM projects, while guitarists Zach DeGaetano and Tyler Thompson worked as music writers. An eventful writing session for music briefs diverged to their first single "Stay", leading the three to their self-titled debut album. Now, the band's newly released single "Vagabond" spins bright-eyed, anthemic hooks and arpeggios with an acoustic twang as Kristina Antuna nods to a life's path — perhaps theirs — trailing off into the unknown. We point them towards the direction of Run River North, Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men — open-armed coastal folk pop acts that you can sing along to.

WILD are flying off for a quick minute to perform in New York, before trekking back for a pair of free shows; listen to "Vagabond" and catch WILD's live performances below. - Ryan Mo

2/10 New York, NY @ Top of the Rock

2/15 Los Angeles, CA @ The Mint

2/24 Los Angeles, CA @ The Redbury (Free Show)

Antique Naked Soul Performs Live at Oakland Museum of California - 2/5

Antique Naked Soul is stepping out to perform on their home turf with two free shows this week. Singer Candice “Antique” Davis and her beat boxing counterparts are using nothing but their vocal chords to bring their audiences to a soulful hip-hop haven.

The team of hip-hop preservationists are putting on a two part event in Oakland on February 5th and 9th bringing together music, film, and activism . They will be performing at the Oakland Museum of California on friday at 7 pm, and at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland on Tuesday. The latter performance will be accompanied by a screening of “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution”.

The group released their debut album back in 2013 to an exceedingly satisfied audience, and have since been working on a follow up release due some time this year. Thus far Antique Naked Soul’s formula involves looping and layering vocal percussions and melodies to establish a full base sound, on top of which Antique’s soulful lyrics contribute the crucial layer that beautiful ties together their innovative, distinct, and powerful sound. The leading lady of this ensemble, is not only a talented creative, but also a proactive educator. She teaches the necessity of social and racial justice, both in the classroom and in the studio. This weeks performances serves as a direct example of Antique Naked Soul’s desire to utilize their creativity to inspire transformation in people and culture. -Julia deAnda

NYC Artist on the Rise: Dion Lunadon plays Palisades tomorrow (02.04)

Fast drums, distorted guitars and melodic vocals barely floating on top of the noise - it's the rock'n'roll equivalent of a BLT, you just can't go wrong with it. That is, in a few words, what Dion Lunadon's band does when he's not busy playing the bass for A Place to Bury Strangers or Flower of Evil. Dion unveiled just one track so far, the streaming "Com/Broke," to be released in vinyl on February 16th, but - most importantly - already has booking representation through Paradigma, which is a great asset for a new band. If this sonic BLT is your cup of tea, don't miss the band's show at Palisades tomorrow (02.04) - it should be a good one. 

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best punky songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
