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

We are very excited to announce our return to PhilaMOCA on Saturday, October 15 for The Deli Philly’s Anniversary Bash!

We’ll also have more special guests and treats for you that evening; however, we’ll be announcing them as we get a little closer to the show. Until then, you can check out more deets about our anniversary celebration HERE!




Weekend Warrior, October 9 - 11

For us, this weekend is all about our Anniversary Bash this Saturday at PhilaMOCA. It’s a great time for us to let loose and listen to some of our favorite Philly bands perform. Providing the rad tunes will be the neo-psych explorations of The Orange Drop, the darkwave prom-pop of Blood Sound, and the endearing indie-pop/rock of Hello Shark. Suburban Living will also be spinning the vinyl jams for your listening pleasure. Refreshments will be available so come celebrate with us another year of love for local music! BTW: We need to get things ready, and will be most likely recovering from the festivities so we’ll catch up with you again after the weekend. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Q.D.
