New Video: "Down Your Street" (Live - Out Of Town Films) - RFA

Courtesy of Out of Town Films, RFA have released a new song, “Down Your Street.” Kickstarted by backend, agitated, yearning vocals take the lead, strolling at a steady pace that when sparked, increases into a jarring momentary jam, before tempering back into form. The quartet is set to perform next in Philly on Wednesday, May 31 at PhilaMOCA with Dear Forbidden and The Coax.

The Deli Philly's Yearly Readers'/Fans' Poll for Indie Rock Winner: RFA

The Deli Philly's Yearly Readers'/Fans' Poll for Indie Rock just wrapped up. Thanks to all who casted their vote in support of their favorite emerging artists in our list of nominee.

Congrats are in order for the "four, bright strapping young men" of RFA for seriously rallying their fans to victory! The Philly quartet first caught our attention with its irresistible party anthem, "Freaking Out". And it looks like Dan Cousart, Alec Powell, Brendan McHale, and Christian Turzo have managed to keep their momentum moving along just fine on the back of their latest EP Something New From RFA. Join them in the AM this Saturday, February 4 at The Tip for the kickoff of RFA's Erin Express - Kegs n Eggs events. "Start your day off with some Rock n Roll and some cheap beer...oh and of course, omelettes."

Weekend Warrior, May 13 - 15

This weekend is the second annual Love on the Streets Festival. Held at Paines Park, it is an all day festival that supports the Franklin Pains Skatepark Fund (FPSF) in its attempt to spread the love of skateboarding and support urban culture in and around the city. While last year the festival filled the park with circus performers, artisan coffee, and a mess of food trucks, this year is really upping the ante in terms of entertainment. Wahoo Tacos, along with The Electric Factory, will be sponsoring a skating competition, where the lucky winner will take home $2,000. New this year are a couple key cogs that were missing last year. First and foremost, Beer. There was not a beer as far as the eye could see last year. Unfortunately, it will be coming from a Budweiser Beer Garden so you might just want to bring your own. Live art has been added to the mix, with renowned graffiti artists Distoart and Getup to make the festival a multi-sensory experience. Another enticing addition this year is a Flea Market with over 40 vendors selling a vast array of lightly used treasures that are just waiting for a good home.

The music is also a strong suit of the festival once again, bringing both variety and congruity to make for an eclectic but fitting lineup of artists. There is a bit of a punk tinge to this years lineup, with artists like Mumblr, JANK (who have a great new album Awkward Pop Song coming out May 20 on Creep Records), Lithuania (DRGN KING's Dom Angelella and Dr. Dog's Eric Slick), and Steady Hands (a.k.a. Sean Huber from Modern Baseball). Other artists include The Obsessives, Vicky Speedboat, Plainview, Endless Taile, and RFA. For the skate competition and throughout the day, there will be tunes complimentary of Fishtown Beats, Frank Sriracha, and Aurize. All in all, a pretty dope collection of happenings that are sure to be a good time for a good cause. Paine's Park, N. 24th St., 12pm-10pm, Free, All Ages - Adam G.
