Scoot Inn Japan Benefit 4/9 w/The Boxing Lesson, One Step Program, Lean Hounds, and more...

The Scoot Inn will be packed with local bands this Saturday night (4/9), all to benefit the people of Japan...The Boxing Lesson, One Step Program, Lean Hounds (above) and more will take the stage. Be sure to go check out One Step Program, whose track "Bad Spaceman" is my own all-time favorite profanity-laced boasting track narrated by an astronaut - bar none. How often can you hear that live AND help people? 


Univox Headline Early Show at KFN April 8

Call me a school girl but Univox makes me giddy. Their contorted, spastic noise always excites me so, and whenever there's a chance to catch the Philly act in action, like tonight at Kung Fu Necktie, I jump on it like a starving cheetah (OK, maybe more like a hungry rat). Outside of their live grinds, Whether I'm spinning their latest EP, Conan, which features the smashing "Conan" from their self-titled debut on ROIR, a sweet Golden Ages remix of the song, and the non-album, home-recorded track "Philadelphia Red Clay, 1945", playing their in-studio acoustic performance last Wednesday at YNot Radio, or checking out UNIVOX TV on their Tumblr page (they just posted Episode 6), it goes without saying you should follow my lead. And while you're at it, snag the new album, Black Shark from the North Carolina indie three-piece Hammer No More the Fingers, and educate yourself on the DC/Brooklyn quintet Deleted Scenes, both billed for tonight's show. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St, 7pm, $8, 21+ - Annamarya Scaccia

Power Animal Cancel Tomorrow Night’s Appearance at First Unitarian Chapel & Share New Fan Music Video!

Unfortunately, Power Animal had to cancel their appearance at tomorrow night’s sold out show with David Liebe Harte (Tim & Eric Awesome Show) in the First Unitarian Chapel. Power Animal mastermind Keith Hampson was hospitalized last night with a rare form of strep throat. We’re sending him good vibes for a speedy recovery. We’d also like to share with you a new fan music video (below) for the track “Empty Parking Lot, Scary Dog, Snowing” from 2010’s People Songs that was made by Media Art Production from Australia. Andrew Keller’s Snow Caps will be taking Power Animal’s place on the bill. - The Deli Staff
