Weekend Warrior, October 4 - 6

Weekend Warrior, October 4 - 6

So it shouldn’t be hard to figure out where The Deli Philly staff will be this weekend. On Saturday, we’ll be dressed in our finest vintage threads and celebrating our 5th anniversary with a major bash at PhilaMOCA. We are truly honored to have the sexified sounds of Night Panther, the jangly, power-pop goodness of Literature, and the wit and warmth of indie popsters The Homophones to help us throw down for this momentous occasion. We’ll also be pre-gaming with a cocktail hour before the music starts, and there will be prizes like passes to a R5 show (sold out or not) awarded for the best vintage outfit that we come across that evening. Special thanks to our event sponsors Art in the Age, NarragansettTito's VodkaSpodee Wine and La Colombe for the tasty beverages. They will be happily consumed.
BTW: I just wanted to say that it’s been so much fun and an honor to watch, cover and be a part of the wonderful things that have been going on these last five years in Philly’s indie music community. I also wanted to thank all the writers, photographers and readers of the site who have contributed to making The Deli Philly what it is today. It could have never been done without you. I came to working with The Deli Magazine as a fan, and I have always thought of it as a fanzine - something for all to take part in. I am proud that tradition still continues to this day. It’s been amazing getting to know many of the talented and generous folks in the trenches helping to make a positive difference locally, which in turn, (I hope) will spread worldwide. I am excited to see/hear what the next five years will bring to our music community.
With so much love!
