The Homophones





Weekend Warrior - July 5 - 7

Sixteen Jackies’ Joey Demarco and Marley McNamara will be celebrating their birthdays this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. Demarco and his bandmates are co-headlining the festivities with rising singer-songwriter Ali Awan. Moody, indie popsters The Homophones have come out of the woodwork for support, led by the smooth, baritone wit of Jason Ferraro. Langor, the solo project of Brian Langor (Needle Points, SW!MS, Sweatheart), will also be on hand to help kick-start the party. Beat the heat with plenty of cold beers, cool tunes, and a stacked lineup of local Philly talent! – Alexis V.

The Homophones Emerge From Their Slumber at The Fire July 9

The Homophones emerge from their slumber to make a somewhat rare appearance at The Fire this evening. The Jason Ferraro-led group burrows under your skin with a haunting ease. Musically, there’s a polished folk backdrop erecting a familiar space for one’s mind and body to sink into. With hints of those quirky, slightly warped lyrics, they offer an alternate prism of experience that catches your attention with its ability to establish comfort from a set of twisted images and a captainly baritone. The Homophones will be hosting a trio of New York acts, including the somber yet percussively forward electronic songs of Goste and the crisp soulful R&B of On the Sun, which incorporates that bass-bumping, horn-blasting funk, while folk-rock trio A Penny’s Worth kick things off.

The Homophones & Hello Shark Opening for Attic Abasement at The Elemental Hazzard July 6

The brand new DIY music space, The Emerald Hazzard, debuts tonight with a show from Magic Death Sounds’ summer event series and Philadelphia Bike Rescue that’s headlined by Rochester, NY’s Attic Abasement. And it will be supported by a couple of local Deli favorites. It’s been a while since we’ve last seen Jason Ferraro and the rest of The Homophones dancing around on a stage, while playing their happily manic musings. But their long hiatus has been largely in part due to the band working on new material so we may be treated to new treats among classics like “Mala Strana” and “Polish Thuggz.” Ever since they transplanted from Vermont, Hello Shark have been really impressing us with their quirky lyrics and oddly beautiful songs that resonate from their albums HS and Break Arms. And they’re sure to be a welcomed addition to this intimate house show. The Emerald Hazzard, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8 PM, $5 All Ages - Bill McThrill





Photo Recap: The Deli Philly's 5th Anniverary Bash w/Night Panther, Literature & The Homophones at PhilaMOCA

I just want to thank The Deli staff, my old friend Jersey Dan, the good folks at PhilaMOCA, Night Panther, Literature, The Homphones, our sponsors (Art in the Age, Narragansett, Tito’s Vodka, Spodee Wine and La Colombe) and all who attended for helping to make The Deli Philly’s 5th Anniversary Bash such a magical evening. It was truly the best event to date that I’ve had the honor of putting together, and I will always well up with joy remembering back on that day/night when all the stars aligned as they did and the evening became a crazy blur of happy faces. It was inspiring to say the least. I look forward to doing it again with you next year. And since we had so much fun, don’t be surprised if a Deli-curated music showcase pops up again this spring. Please check out the beautiful photos from the evening’s performances HERE! (Photo by Zach Blum) - Q.D. Tran
