FREE Moon Women Performance at Digital Ferret March 25

You’ll have your chance to have your eardrums assaulted (in a good way) today when Moon Women perform a FREE super intimate show at Queen Village’s Digital Ferret. It’ll be a nice warm-up for their BIG upcoming show at The Troc with Black Lips and Vivian Girls. But these types of events might be getting easier for the shadowy post-punk trio to handle. Since, in about a year’s time of emerging onto the Philly music scene with their eye-catching video and debut single “Listen Closely”, they’ve already opened for indie legends Buzzcocks and Gang of Four. Maybe you could be one of the few and the proud to someday say, “I remember when I saw them in this tiny little record store.” It is also the record release show for Baltimore dark-wavers Red This Ever, and Japan’s scholarly duo Rose Noire (Darkest Labyrinth) will be joining them. Digital Ferret, 732 S. 4th St., 6pm, FREE, All Ages - Q.D. Tran


New UNIVOX TV Episode on Building a Mask-making Empire!

Below is a new episode of UNIVOX TV. All we can say is more episodes with Kent Boersma, please. In this "instructional video", Boersma shows us how to make “dozens of dollars” building a mask-making empire. You can purchase your very own mask HERE. There is also a pretty song from The Jones Gang celebrating “urban wreckage Irish style.” Enjoy! - The Deli Staff


Lurker Open for Moon Duo at KFN March 25

The sludge rocking psychedelia of Philly’s own Lurker are coming out of the woodwork tonight to play Kung Fu Necktie. The musical affair is largely instrumental. However, the distant howls of Chief do add a haunting afterglow to the already brooding music. The guitar work of tunes like “Knife Fight” build and weave like many a post rock band, but have their own blend of Birds of Maya fuzz and minimalistic drums. This freight train of apocalyptic soundtracks is opening up for Moon Duo, which is born from Wooden Ships member Ripley Johnson to create Kraut-esque psych music for a perfectly dark and moody night. You should hear some cool shit tonight. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Adam G.  

Philly Cypher w/Black Thought, Ms. Jade, Meek Mill, Peedi Crakk, and Dice Raw at Jill Scott’s “Shame” Video Shoot!

Special thanks to Uristocrat for bringing this sweet video to our attention. Filmed by The Artist Wharehouse at Jill Scott’s “Shame” video shoot at the request of Meek Mill, below is an “old school cypher” featuring some of Philly’s finest emcees like Black Thought, Ms. Jade, Meek Mill, Peedi Crakk, and Dice Raw with Yameen on the beat box. (Lovin’ Black Thought dropping the line: “I had 'dreams' like Akira Kurosawa, and realized my meteoric rise to power.”) Enjoy! (Video Posted by Bigg48; Photo by Mikaelyn) - The Deli Staff
