Rigsketball Musicfest 2017 is in Full Swing

For all the great, DIY happenings in town, Rigsketball is definitely one of the best. Combining friendly competition with one of the more frequented pastimes around, Rigsketball's tournaments are nearing their end, and they've got some good musical acts accompanying them. 

The first day of the music fest, along with the slimming down the finalists through eight rounds, took place last night. Boone Howard, Kulululu, Kyle Craft and the Woolen Men all rang the first night of the fest, with tonight taking it to the next level.

Rigsketball is taking over the Eagles Lodge again tonight for the semifinals, with performances from Bleach Blonde Dudes, Ghost Frog, Lavender Flu and Cat Hoch

As always, Rigsketball is entirely free. Games start in just a couple hours at 6pm and music starts at 8pm. Head down to southeast again tomorrow for the tournament finals, Melt's EP release and sets from Malt Lizard, Tribe Mars, Candace, Donte Thomas and Chanti Darling





Jachary releases single "Yellow Vision" + opens for Homeshake at Warsaw 7.28

With a debut EP on the way, New-York-via-Boston artist Jachary has released the single “Yellow Vision” (streaming below) which garnered him quite a bit of momentum. The funky alt-soul single is like a cross between semi-electronic groups Milky Chance and Glass Animals, with an even groovier synth beat and an undeniable flow. In the past, Jachary has also been busy as a producer, working on track “eve’s titties” for fellow hometown hero Deem Spencer - a rapper with great potential. Jachary’s full EP will be out on September 12th, and, before then, he will be opening for Homeshake on July 28th at Warsaw in Brooklyn. - Lilly Milman, photography by Tony Giambrone





The YeahTones take their blues rock South

Don’t let the matching shirts throw you off—Brooklyn’s The YeahTones are not here to be gimmicky, they’re here to serve you loud, unpretentious guitar-driven rock. Their new video for “Believe” (streaming below) provides a nice cross-section of who they are as a band; the three-piece shreds across unapologetically bluesy riffs that even your dad can’t turn his nose up at. The YeahTones kicked off their tour last night in NYC at Belle Reve. They'll head down south, where their music belongs, and then make it back on August 25th fora homework show at The Hall at MP. - Lilly Milman 





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Past Life

When perusing through the members of Past Life’s interview answers, it’s easy to see how a musical gravitational force could have pulled Anthony Massucci, Alyssa Milman, Brandon Bauer, Justin Sterchele, and Dash Williams together. After all, the foundation had already been laid at an early age for most of the gang. With supportive music-friendly environments, providing influences that were tastefully far and wide, the band’s debut EP Triple Nothing provides a good jumping-off point for the fledgling indie/alt-rock outfit bent on taking in and giving back to a city that has already provided them with so much support and inspiration. You can find out more about our Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner HERE.





Fruit & Flowers release new single 'Drug Tax,' play Jersey City Cemetery 7.29

If you are feeling in the mood for surfy sonic fun with garagey and psych overtones, we've got a band for ya: they are called Fruit & Flowers, they hail from Brooklyn, NY, and just released a deliciously droney single entitled . The four-piece is technically skilled, with fast-paced and fleshed-out guitar parts (as heard in tracks like “Pick Fairy”) backed by a tight rhythm section, which too often is the missing link in emerging garagey bands. To top it all off, they layer dreaminess all over their tracks through lead vocalist Caroline’s saccharine soprano (and a fair amount of reverb, not too much though!). Our friends at Delicious Audio heard the ladies dig guitar pedals, so we thought to ask them a few questions about them and other matters at the link below! - Lilly Milman

Q&A with Fruit & Flowers about gear and the creative process.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best psych songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
