Cameo: More than just a free monthly party in Los Angeles

Through the enduring chatter of collective club nights and warehouse afterhours, the monthly installation Cameo—spun together by Sophia Kuhn, Isaac Treece, and Matt Dell—is among the newcomer parties catching waves for its expansive tastes and deep cuts. Their February inauguration event caught fire at the dim-lit General Lee's tucked inside Gin Ling Way, an alley known for its high-end lowbrow galleries and low-end highbrow parties. And despite being in its infancy—the collective is just getting a third show under its belt—Cameo’s sets by past selectors like SWISHA, Swan Meat, and MARAL have already cemented a reputation for bringing diverse and irresistible music to the greying quietude of Chinatown, crossing through territories of pop, experimental, ambient, jungle, 90s freestyle UK bass, dembow, footwork, bailefunk, and kuduro. For the jaded post-psych youth and the displaced club kids, it’s a godsend, but for the organizers and the artists, it’s just a free weeknight party.

This Wednesday, Cameo’s third free pop-up arrives to the Grand Star Jazz Club with Mess Kid, Helikonia, Habibiboi, E**N (Chicago), and a special b2b set with Matthew and Bapari (moon casual, Laza Records), with live visual accompaniments by Nick Zhu, Tea Strazicic, and Camille Lacadee.

Suss it out and watch for their collaboration with labels Juke Bounce Werk and Mall Music Inc. featuring DJ Paypal, DJ Orange Julius, and DJ Mastercard at UNION on 6/29. - Ryan Mo, flyer by Caleb Ali Miller

Riot pop duo WASI release empowering new EP Coup

Merilous Salazar and Jessie Meehan have found a new way to present their musical talent to their fans, through female liberation and pop-punk vibrations. The duo’s newest EP, entitled Coup, has stirred some empowering musical tastes. The riot pop group has been promoting feminist and LGBTQ rights for awhile now, and with all the commotion in the past few months, it seems only right to give these kick-ass females some recognition in the music community. In a time when women are silenced as a whole, it feels damn good to be spoken for by the “pussy grabs back liberation”.

Get empowered and go find WASI at the Asian Pacific Heritage Month Showcase in LA on May 24.


Listen to Gothic Tropic's latest LP "Fast or Feast"

 Here at the Deli we've always been admirers of Gothic Tropic, the indie rock band led by Cecilia Della Peruti. You can now listen to her latest LP, Fast or Feast, over on She Shreds, a new record that takes great influence from late seventies new wave heroes like Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde.

Gothic Tropic will be celebrating the release of Fast of Feast with a record release show at Resident on June 6. Check out the band's latest single for "Your Soul" below.


Heavy psych rockers PETYR release debut full-length of 6/9

Psychedelic rockers PETYR live by the thrill of adrenaline. The San Diego foursome are motivated by equal parts skateboarding and hard rock, activities that fuel their stoner jams with a free-flowing and deeply emotional energy. Inspired by those long drives up the Pacific coast, their upcoming debut full-length features eight smoldering tracks that capture the band's self-described "sonic heaviness", playing against the dynamics of a live setting through and through. 

PETYR comes out on June 9 via Outer Battery Records.
