Oh man - we are getting so pumped for our Halloweeniversary Party this Friday at PhilaMOCA! If you were there last year, then you should know why. Well, this year we have another stellar lineup of bands to keep everyone entertained throughout the evening. Headlining the festivities will be West Philly’s electro-pop wunderkinds GRANDCHILDREN, who will have plenty of rad new material to share with us from their upcoming album as well as old favorites. They’ll be supported by the hauntingly beautiful, introspective sounds of Barrett Lindgren’s GHOST LIGHT, who absolutely rocks live, and the psych-pop candy magic dreams of Andy Molholt’s LASER BACKGROUND, who are guaranteed to bring plenty of the weirdness that we love for Halloween. And we are proud to be importing for you the fuzzy grooves of our very special guests San Francisco’s SIC ALPS. We’ll also have plenty of more treats for you, but you are certainly welcomed to bring some of your own. Will this night rule? Fuck yeah - it will!
It’s October - our favorite month of the year! Why? Well, it means Halloween, the bestest holiday ever is just around the corner, and it’s also The Deli Philly’s birthday month so we have plenty to celebrate. And we’ll be doing so on Friday, October 26 at PhilaMOCA for our Halloweenniversary Partay! We simply had so much fun dressin’ up and throwin’ down at the old Mad Decent mausoleum last year that we just had to do it again, and we also decided to combine the bash with our anniversary celebration to really make it another night to remember. As always, we’ll be bringing you some fine music acts to keep us all entertained throughout the evening. Who will be gracing the stage this year? Well, we are proud to have experimental electro-acoustic-pop outfit Grandchildren headlining the evening. If you’ve ever caught one of their live performances, then you should already know why you need to come. The ultra-rad West Philly six-piece will have plenty of mind-melting new material as they gear up to release their sophomore full-length album, and old favorites will also be in tow to drive the crowd into a frenzy. Grandchildren will be supported fellow locals Ghost Light, who put out a wonderful EP Awful Feelings earlier this year via Single Girl Married Girl that was our July Album of the Month, and ex-Armchair Andy Molholt’s latest psych-pop project Laser Background, who also recently released their strangely intoxicating self-titled debut EP via UK label Stroll On Records (Ku Klux Glam - the collaboration of Ariel Pink and R. Stevie Moore). Plus as a very special guest and treat (certainly not a trick), kick-ass San Francisco psych rockers Sic Alps (Drag City, Siltbreeze, Slumberland, Woodsist) will also be getting friggin’ weird with us. And of course, we’ll have plenty of party favors to help us all do that. Yeah, it’s going to be a dope time so mark your calendars, punch it in your iPhone or do whatever you need to do to remember to show up!
