Weekend Warrior, June 8 - 10

The drums pump along at a running pace, and then as you begin to sweat, intense electric guitars join you making the ground beneath your feet feel slightly uncomfortable as loose gravel penetrates your skin. However, once you reach maximum speed, there’s no slowing down, and a sweet feminine voice steadies the course. You lock in. Your body seems to move in one fluid motion, until it becomes effortless, and you’re left to your own unfiltered thoughts. The terrain is ever-changing, and the soundtrack is Bleeding Rainbow.

If your subconscious made music, there’s a good chance it would come out sounding like Creepoid. There’s a hazy déjà that stirs as male and female vocals push against each other and simultaneously blend harmonically with the bass bumps in a disturbed irritated nature while the guitar puts forth a simple riff with a jagged edge. Then, as it begins to morph, climbing a steep cliff and emerging electrified in complete assault mode. The voices are haunting, but this isn’t a horror show. It’s a microscope pointed between your ears. The groove is there too, as the drums bounce along to the strumming guitar and the vocals guide the way. Sometimes the microscope zooms in, but have no fear because no matter what it’s you.
Both Deli faves will be helping R5 and Morgan’s Pier kickoff their free Saturday afternoon summer concert series this weekend. Morgan’s Pier, 211 N. Columbus Blvd., 6pm, Free, 21+ (Bleeding Rainbow Photo by Chris Zak; Creepoid Photo by Brandee Nichols) - Michael Colavita

Free Download: Daytrotter Session - Bleeding Rainbow

Check out the Daytrotter session for Bleeding Rainbow that popped up earlier this week from when they were still a duo and called Reading Rainbow. You can download it for free HERE (if you are a Daytrotter member which you probably should be by now). You can catch the now four-piece Bleeding Rainbow performing live on June 9 at the inaugural free Saturday afternoon music series curated by R5 at the new Morgan’s Pier, which we mentioned earlier today.

Weekend Warrior, March 30 - April 1

Officially a 4 piece! Photo by Lily Chou in San Fran.

There's nothing we dislike more at the Deli than when a rad local band is playing a show that’s sold out. Sure, we’re totally happy for the band but it’s a bummer for anyone who wants to catch their act. That’s the case with Bleeding Rainbow (the artist formerly known as Reading Rainbow). They’re opening for Cleveland’s Cloud Nothings tonight at Johnny Brenda’s, and if you’re sans a ticket, you’re sadly out of luck because it’s, not surprisingly, sold out. But if you’re one of those lucky ones, then you’re in for a treat. Back from their badass stint at SXSW, Bleeding Rainbow will no doubt rock the audience with their brand of fuzz bomb, frenzied noise pop renderings, which we know will be even more brilliant now that they’ve become a four-piece, with Sara Everton moving from drums to bass, new member Greg Frantz on drums, and Rob Garcia and Al Creedon on guitars. Yes, us non-ticketers are totally jealous of those with the golden pass. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, SOLD OUT, 21+ -Annamarya Scaccia
