"Eight Legged Prawn" & Lithuania Opening for "Thy Foes Profanely Rage" at FUC Dec. 30

Sometimes, when things are tough, it’s a good practice to head to church; First Unitarian Church - that is. Tonight, an exciting air of mystery (that's not so mysterious) surrounds the guest performer who will step up to the pulpit. Word is that those "Eight Legged Prawn" were shipped in from Lititz. Their singer’s vocals ache and growl in a heartfelt tremor that can shake you to the core with resonance, and instrumentally, they expertly manipulate, gradually climbing an incline and then letting it all show upon reaching the summit. Oh and their long-awaited LP is due out in February via an overweight marsupial. This evening, they will be joined at this reaffirming spectacle by Lithuania, the pairing of Dominic Angelella and Eric Slick, who will wet our appetite for their forthcoming full-length Hardcore Friends via Seagreen Records, with the Domesticated God 7”, an instant surge of infectious raw-edged rock with a slightly disorienting psyche conclusion. "Thy Foes Profanely Rage" (another not so mysterious mystery) headline this evening delivering a sermon you won’t want to miss. First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 8:30pm, $17, All Ages - Michael Colavita

New Track: "It Comes in Waves... (Neil Young)" - Trophy Wife

Below is a track from Trophy Wife called "It Comes in Waves... (Neil Young)," off their album all the sides. It may be a surpise to those have been following the duo's catalogue. The song is a 7-minute mostly instrumental jam with a mantra of "Once beat strong/Beat again"; however, it still keeps the band's signature intensity, which is generated by Diane Foglizzo's searing electric guitar and Katy Otto's in sync pummeling of her kit - only with spaces to breathe to take it all in.


Five Bay Area NYE Parties to Suit Your Needs

One of the most important things an editor should be able to do is understand their readers. I'm not a psychic or anything, but I do realize that even though people may agree on their fave music blogs, everyone is essentially unique. If you have a good idea of what environment you might enjoy the most on New Year's Eve, here are some options that will hopefully be a good fit for your individual party needs.

The Deli SF Editor in Chief

If You Want Something Normal - City Hall - SF

You can always go right downtown to City Hall in San Francisco and bring in the New Year with a bunch of enthusiastic strangers. Think about it, you don't have to have a date, you can meet up with a group of friends and meet new people while you're celebrating at a mass outdoors event. It's free, it's fun and you can bring your grandmother whose in town and really old. It's family friendly so you won't have to worry about leaving her alone to go out and get wasted.

If You Want Something Kinky - The Amory - SF

You can go party at the place where they shoot hardcore BDSM porn for Kink.com. If you're looking to get into some dirty trouble, you should attend the massive NYE party, hosted by Vau de Vire, Opel Productions & Kink.com. The party will include internationally known DJ's, a Kink.com VIP Lounge and a number of provocative performance spectacles. At the very least, I can pretty much guarentee you'll see breats...if that's what you're into, enjoy!

If You Want Something Familiar - The Milk Bar - SF

If you don't want a lot of pressure on NYE, you can grab a drink and check out some live rock and roll at The Milk Bar. The door is affordable and if you're a part of the local music and arts scene, there is a very good chance you're going to run into at least one person you know. The Milk Bar is the hub for the local scene. Its got a chill vibe and a fun atmosphere.

If You Want Something Artsy - Imagine Affairs Art Lounge - Oakland

If you're looking for something quiet, a bit classy and out of the way, Imagine Affairs Art Lounge in Oakland will be throwing a party with live music, dinner and champagne. So, you're in some cheesy relationship where you actually want to cuddle and talk and stuff, this may be the best place for you. It's ok to want to avoid crying drunk ladies and vomit...it really is.

If You Require a Burger and Beer - Woods Bar and Brewery - Oakland

Woods Bar and Brewery will be providing a burger bar at their NYE party. Yes, you read right. You can eat and be merry while being surrounded by a bunch of micro brews and good times. The evening will also include unlimited beer, wine and empanadas. If you're a foodie - and don't care who knows - go there.


Johnnie Lee Jordan hones Rockabilly sound in new single “Candy Mountain”

In LI/Manhattan folkster Johnnie Lee Jordan’s catchy new single, “Candy Mountain,” a simply-stated rhythm guitar overlaps and interweaves a driving drum part and spacy leads  The tune is a continuation of a rockabilly sound, rooted in a plethora of influences from the past, and uniquely foreign to his hometown. Reverb and slide-guitar sounds are introduced and overlapped throughout, culminating in a full band chorus, which acts as a climax of catchiness with an old-timey sweetness saying, “Kiss me and say that it’s for free.” I had the pleasure of catching his set (playing as Johnnie Lee Jordan and The Boys) during CMJ, and it was absolutely a highlight of the whole festival. Between their live show and this new single, Johnnie Lee Jordan is not to be missed! – JP Basileo

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