Freeway Sharing Positivity on CNN!

Congrats to Freeway for such an amazingly positive piece on CNN! You make Philly proud. Below is some footage from Freeway’s interview of him talking about the importance of his Muslim faith on his life and music career. You also find him reaching out to local youths about combating bullying in schools. You can read the whole article written by Sarah Hoye HERE. Cheers Freeway - thank you for using your fame and talents for good instead of “winning”! - The Deli Staff

Gold Crowns Live w/Tough Shits, The Great Vibration & 'tine-'tine at The Station March 26

Tonight’s show at The Station might be the debut performance of the virtually unknown Gold Crowns, but its members have rocked the foundation of Philadelphia before as a part of Dark Horse & the Carousels, Invisible Friends, and Sweatheart for years. And they’re destined to be as rockin’, alcohol-charged, and naughty as the other bands (hopefully). Plus, with a big show that will see them play alongside The Extraordinaires and Juston Stens & The Get Real Gang already on the horizon, it looks like they’re making the rounds with good company. They’ll be joined by long-time friends the Tough Shits, who will be returning to a Philly stage for the first time since November. Rounding out the lineup will be lo-fi South Philly art rockers The Great Vibration and STDiva ‘tine-‘tine. The Station, 1550 McKean St., 9pm, $3 - $5, 21+ - Bill McThrill

Opening Night of “Animal Show” w/Eat Your Birthday Cake and Cow Pals at Pterodactyl March 26

“Animal Show” is Pterodactyl’s fitting yearly art show where a menagerie of beasts become the muses that are used to depict the artists’ projection of myths, fantasies, and ideas. For opening night, the DIY art space has lined-up a 3 ring circus of musicians to heighten the evening’s party. Eat Your Birthday Cake have been working on an album that is set to be unveiled in the spring. They’ve even debuted a lo-fi shoegaze-y sound that can be heard on new material such as “Kathy + Ken”. The Pterodactyl event will be the bands 2nd performance of the day since they’ll also be part of a Jazz Benefit for Japan at Rittenhouse Square’s Church of the Holy Trinity. So today will be a great chance to catch them before they unleash some April Fools at Danger Danger Gallery next week. Also on the “Animal Show” bill will be indie popsters Cow Pals, who recently released a new EP at the beginning of this year called Look Who’s Comin’, and Jersey’s Peanut Butter Lovesicle. Pterodactyl, 3237 Amber St. Box 3 Fifth Floor North, 8pm, Donations, All Ages - Bill McThrill


Weekend Warrior, March 25 - March 27

Local romantics Pet Milk are set to open for Costa Rican noise pop Las Robertas. With the quasi-moody diction of “Permanent Vacation” and the heartfelt shreds of “Cherry Outline”, it’s clear why Herbie Shellenberger (Brown Recluse) and his fellow bandmates ( who are made up of members from hometown hardcore outfits Paint It Black and Pink Coffins as well as A Sunny Day in Glasgow) are the perfect premise to Las Robertas’ driving riffs and the garage-y buzz of tracks like “Damn ‘92” and “The Curse”. Leave it to No Wavelength to treat the City of Brotherly Love to Las Robertas’ first ever Philly performance. Pakistani musical gunslingers Sunny Ali and the Kid will be armed with their most enjoyable lo-fi ditties and Try Harder cassettes so dust off your tape player and grab a copy. Also kicking off the evening will be Brooklyn’s Dear Marje. Miss out on this, and you’ll regret it for months! Seriously, we hope to see you there. Cha-Cha'Razzi, (Please contact NOWAVELENGTH@gmail.com for directions.), 8pm (SHARP), $7 - $10, All Ages (Pet Milk Photo by Madeleine Lesperance)
