Conversations with Enemies Rarely Go Well at Millcreek Tavern Oct. 29

Millcreek Tavern is normally known to bring the Halloween ruckus with its annual Halloween Hellride show (which will be coming back in full force on Sunday with Total Fucking Destruction!). But the bar decided to start off its festivities a little early this year. Between blending songs of zombie love and vampires with full moon gypsy folk, dressing up in costumed finery when a good chance arises, and releasing albums that come with full length graphic novels, Conversations with Enemies is a band that’s easily in their element when they usher in Halloween weekend. And the happy-go-lucky quintet will be dressed to impress with their whimsical pop and blaring trumpets. Joining them on the line up will be comical misfits The Josh & Pete Band and quirky Eat Your Birthday Cake. Millcreek Tavern, 4200 Chester Ave., 9pm, $8, 21+ (Photo by Perry Julien) - Bill McThrill

Dani Mari CD Release Party at Connie’s Ric Rac Oct. 29

Dani Mari is a self-professed former band geek, but if technology has taught us anything, it’s that the geeks shall inherit the earth (or at least make a shitload of money while they destroy it). However, on her debut full length Impulsive, you find the steely-eyed beauty growing into her own skin. The sometimes playful, sometimes sultry and often times lonely drawl of the folk-y hearted songwriter stands in the forefront on her latest offering supported by some clean production work and instrumentation from her local music pals. She’ll be celebrating the release of Impulsive tonight at Connie’s Ric Rac with South Philly buddies The Discount Heroes and Fishstick. Connie’s Ric Rac, 1132 S. 9th St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

Intimate Acoustic Dr. Dog Performance Video

This one is for you rabid Dr. Dog fans. Special thanks to Philly-to-Denver transplant John Hendrickson, who runs The Denver Post’s music blog Reverb, for sharing this with us. It’s nice to see Philly folks spreadin’ the music love all over the place. Below are two videos from a semi-secret acoustic performance by Dr. Dog of “County Line” and “Jackie Wants a Black Eye” two days ago for a Reverb acoustic session. It was originally planned to be filmed at the Pearl Street Mall during lunchtime, but wind squashed that idea so here they are for happy hour at Conor O’Neil’s Traditional Irish Pub. - The Deli Staff

Haunted Valley Halloween Block Party, 10/30/10

If I wasn't going to be traipsing around New Orleans this weekend for VOODOO Music Fest, I'd be at this show. Great lineup of local and national bands, and will be hosted by Dean "Tex Rambunctious" Shortland, and--god forbid this is actually true--the one and only, Basil Marceaux. Wha...?! But you definitely don't want to miss Chancellor Warhol, or Space Capone. And do I even need to tell you to not miss the Ying Yang Twins? Now that's a timeless act right there. Check here for more details. --Deli Editor


Blood and Guts Ball @ 12th & Porter, 10/28/10

Looks like some pretty "colorful" entertainment will be happening in Nashville this weekend, especially at 12th and Porter. It also looks like it might be a good idea to try and snag advance tickets for a lot of the shows going on, because they're probably gonna be pretty packed. Go here for more information and tickets.--Deli Editor
