The Deli LA is officially social media whore-tastic!

Have you added us on Facebook yet?  We just joined and we're already a hit with all those crazy kids and their banal status updates about mafias and farming. Once you're on, tell your friends to join us. We promise not to tag you in mega incriminating photos.

And if you aren't following us yet on Twitter, what are you waiting for? We'll tweet your face off, all in the name of giveaways and exclusive Deli LA twitter information including (but not limited to) passwords into events, presales and all that other stuff that'll make you glad you followed us long, long ago.

If those reasons aren't enough, then simply do it to support LA's music community. Tons of bands have hopped on and have found really great uses through our outlets and anything that excites the music community is, frankly, good for all of us.

Socadia play Spaceland and El Cid end of January

Socadia | "Land of Peasants"
Dir. by Andrew Giacomini

Erotic electo-rock Socadia play Spaceland the 23rd and El Cid -- no flamenco dancers! -- on the 29th, all in support for their new LP [trees for the forest] , due February.


It isn't lonely at Raymond Richards' Idaho Falls

The Idaho Falls, collaborative-laden project of producer/engineer/songwriter Raymond Richard, is a breathing all-star act featuring local notables.  His upcoming LP The Spark tracks cameos from Angela Correa and Rob Poynter from Correatown, Brian Whelan from Broken West, Alex Silverman from Alex & Sam, Wendy Wang from The Sweet Hurt and others including longtime Idaho Falls guitarist Kevin Feyen and drummer Roger Brogan. For those seeking that classic Topanga Canyon sound, Richard isn't too far -- musical communities tend to have that effect.
