Night Train DJs Are Back w/Raw Luxury (Ex-Spooks)!

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the Night Train DJs are back at it again this evening at The Barbary! It will be the first time Ian St. Laurent and Dennis Wolf.Fang have performed together since Night Train ended. It will also be the first Philly performance of Raw Urgency (Ex-Spooks). As we had reported earlier, The Spooks broke up during their recent tour to SXSW. Well, three of the four members decided to stick together, write new songs, and finish the tour all the way back from Austin so here’s your chance to hear what they’ve been up to lately. Buddies Far-Out Fangtooth will also be spinning this evening as Undercover Zero, and there will be beer reps around giving out free beers. So get your air guitar tuned up! - The Deli Staff

Rubblebucket play Deli show at Les Poisson Rouge on April 20 with Com Truise

Coming from a very Vermont background of jam band music, the Rubblebucket crew has slowly morphed its sound into an extremely original avant-pop direction, reminiscent of a funkier and less contrived version of Dirty Projector, also armed with an unobtrusive but always fun horn section.
Recently relocated to Brooklyn, the band is about to release a new full length entitled "Omega La La", realized with producer/mixer Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, Cut Copy, Hercules and Love Affair) - the track "Silly Fathers" is available for free listen and downnload at the end of this blog entry.
Rubblebucket is currently on an extensive US tour and will be back in NYC for a Deli sponsored show with Com Truise at Le Poisson Rouge on April 20. Fun is guaranteed so we hope to see you all there!

Best of NYC #96a: The Forgetters

Even though the forgetters like their name without capital letters (our editor has a serious prejudice against bands that do that) they placed 96th in our Best of NYC Emerging Artists Poll. Their formula is simple: punk rock done well, i.e. energy, provocative lyrics and some memorable chords. Yet where so many bands have failed, burning their cookies, so to speak, The Forgetters have whipped up a pretty tasty batch. And they even made a baker's dozen. Led by Blake Schwarzenbach of Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil and a bunch of other bands, the band's experience shines through in their tight performances. It's loud, but not messy. This is punk rock with both a heart and a brain. While Schwarzenbach's lyrics can sometimes be hard to understand (especially at a live show), they are earnest and intellectual, a good contrast to the somewhat aggressive instrumentals behind them. This is music with backbone, no bones about it. P.S. The band doesn't have music online, but you can see some videos of their live shows here. - allison levin


The Tunnel release new album + performs twice in SF

Those of you who are into the sound of the early goth rock (like Nick Cave's original band The Birthday Party) might be interested in knowing that San Francisco trio The Tunnel is celebrating the release of their new album "Fathoms Deep" with two hometown shows. The album was recorded at Studio SQ in San Francisco, produced by the group and engineered by Chris Crawford (drummer for French Miami, the Downer Party) and is being released by the Glorious Alchemial Co. label. The first show will be on Thursday, Apr 7 at Hemlock Tavern, the second on Sunday, Apr 24 at the Make-Out Room.
