Ethel Cee Supporting The Leeway Foundation at The Rotunda Feb. 3

One-woman wrecking machine Ethel Cee is coming through The Rotunda tonight. Ethel Cee is a utility rapper who can offer something for everyone. She swags, intimidates, flows like water but can throw down a biting verse on the flip of a switch. Her LP Dirty Samples out on Bee Eater highlights Cee’s commanding vocals over an array of backing beats from chopped up oldies samples to electro thumpers. Her beats, done by Fel Sweetenberg, are not to be overlooked. The elaborate collages that change and grow as Cee’s lyrical persona does are the perfect compliment to her based rhymes. Along for the ride is Camae from hip-hop/punk experimentalists The Mighty Paradocs. They’ll be performing for free in honor of The Leeway Foundation, a Philly-based organization that supports women and transgender artists in the Delaware Valley who create social change through their artwork. Don’t miss out! The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut St., 7pm, Free, All Ages - Adam G.


The Deli’s Philly Record Label of the Year 2010: Ian Records

It was a tight race again this year with one vote separating two fine labels, but the nod went to Ian Records for The Deli’s Philly Record Label of the Year 2010. It was hard to ignore what Ian Records has been doing for the local indie music scene. If you are not familiar with the Philly-based record label, it’s run by Ian Galloway who also works at the record store Beautiful World Syndicate. He specializes in releasing only music from Philly artists on vinyl. Galloway has helped material see the light of day on proper format from local artists like Party Photographers, Creepoid, and Far-Out Fangtooth. All of whom were nominated by one of our jurors in this year’s Best of Philly Emerging Artists Poll, which is pretty damn impressive. Congrats Ian Records! But we’d also like to acknowledge and thank Richie Records/TestosterTunes for simply releasing kick-ass tunes. Now, we know owner Richie Charles couldn’t give two shits about any awards, but maybe sometimes it’s nice to know that other people think you are badass too. Cheers to both labels for all their support of the local music scene! - The Deli Staff
