Announcing The Deli Philly's 9th Anniversary Bash at PhilaMOCA w/The Retinas, Them Jones & So Totally!

Dear Deli Readers,

Yes, it’s about that time of year again! We will be returning to our home away from home, PhilaMOCA, on Saturday, October 14th for The Deli Philly’s 9th Anniversary Bash, and we are psyched to announce this year’s lineup. You may remember our headliners for the evening. (Or maybe it’s about time you get to know them.) The Retinas threw down with us last year, alongside LOUDS and Suburban Living (who are currently on tour with Frankie Rose – hope that you are having a blast, fellas!), and were recently voted The Deli Philly Best Emerging Indie Rock Artist, so we are thrilled to see them graduate to this year’s headlining slot. They’ll be joined by two rad newcomers to the event, who have both received Record of the Month honors from us. “Reviving and reinventing soundscapes reminiscent of the Age of Aquarius” (September 2016), Them Jones are one of the talented emerging torchbearers of Philly’s ever-evolving psych-rock/pop community, and providing us with “the ideal soundtrack for winter sadness” (January 2017), So Totally will surely melt our hearts. It will certainly be a night of music not to be missed!

We are also happy to be donating all proceeds from our annual celebration to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a nonprofit organization “dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society.” Whether you realize it or not, our staff (past & present) is made up of many proud immigrants and members of the LGBTQ community, who encourage all of our readers to do what you can to push back against this wave of hate that has risen in our society, emboldened as of late by the dishonorable Troll-in-Chief.

We hope that you’ll be able to join us for fun evening of good vibes, great music and no hate! For more info, go HERE.

Much love,

Q.D. Tran & The Deli Staff

The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Artists 2017: Psych Rock/Psych Pop Poll Is Up!

We are now into a couple of genres in The Deli's Yearly Best Emerging Philly Artists Poll that we are quite fond of - Psych Rock/Psych Pop! We love how Philly continues to keep things weird with acts whose music you want to explore. You can now take a listen to this year's list of nominees HERE, and vote for your favorite artist!

The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Artists' Poll Begins With... the Indie Rock Category!

Dear Deli Readers,

Every year, in the early months, The Deli polls several local music enthusiasts/experts to ask their opinion about the best emerging Philly-based artists that got them excited in the previous twelve months. We, therefore, list these artists on our local homepage, in a Readers' Poll, whose results contribute in deciding The Deli Philly's Artist of the Year.

In an effort to give you more time to check out all the nominated bands this year, we have decided to stretch the readers' polls a little, and instead of posting a huge list of artists all at once, we will activate one genre-related poll every five days or so.

We begin today with bands in the Indie Rock category! You can find the poll at the top right of our homepage, and you can cast your vote HERE.

We see our yearly polls as a fun way to engage our readers and the artists involved, and we hope that they will get both to discovery new local acts who deserve attention.

Much love,

The Folks at The Deli

P.S. To group all artists in these categories, we had to "stretch" things a little for a few of the artists that didn't precisely fit any of the wide musical umbrellas most other acts fell under - we hope that we can be forgiven for that.

Weekend Warrior, October 14 - 16

It’s been another amazing year of music for us here at The Deli Philly. We are now into our 8th year of covering the local music scene, and it’s been an honor and privilege to share in this wonderful experience with you as the community continues to flourish in so many beautifully creative ways. It’s also that time of year again when our dedicated staff and I like to take this opportunity to let loose and celebrate the work that we’ve accomplished over this past year, and of course, we’d like you to join us. The whole Deli gang and I are quite amped about our upcoming Anniversary Bash, happening this Saturday night at PhilaMOCA with Suburban Living, LOUDS, and The Retinas, and we hope that you are too! We look forward to many more years of discovering the best emerging indie artists that Philly has to offer with you. So come out tomorrow night, bring the good vibes, and let’s get weird! And yes, there will be cake – specially made by yours truly! ;-) - Q.D. Tran
