Rock and Blues Benefit Festival to Help Save the Bolton Fair & Fairgrounds -- Sat. 10/13

This is a fundraiser to save the Bolton Fair and Fairgrounds. In 2012, the Bolton Fair had a very poor turnout because of three days of rain, this created deep financial trouble. If the Bolton Fair doesn't make enough money this year to pay their bills, their fifty-three acres of land will be sold to housing developers and the fair will close for good. The Bolton Fair was established in 1874. Since the beginning, the Bolton Fair has been run entirely by a volunteer staff. Support local music and help save the Bolton Fair this Saturday, October 13.

Mean Creek Release New Music Video; Support Counting Crows on Fall Tour

Boston-based rock quartet Mean Creek are excited to announce the release of the music video for their new single, "Young & Wild". Directed by P. Nick Curran of Loroto Productions, the video for "Young & Wild" captures the innocence, the excitement and the carefree joy of youthful moments reflected in the song's message.

In addition to the release of the video, Mean Creek recently announced their November tour of the U.S. supporting Counting Crows. Marking the band's second stint with Counting Crows, the tour will begin on Tuesday, October 23 in Port Chester, NY, at The Capitol Theatre and will take in 14 evenings across the U.S., culminating in an appearance at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA, on Saturday, November 24. Prior to the tour, the band will be performing as part of this year's CMJ Music Marathon from October 16-19.

Mean Creek will be playing in Boston, MA on October 11 at Brighton Music Hall. The show is the official release of Youth Companion.

Q&A with The Deli's Band of the Month: Hey Ice Machine

Deli NE: How did the band start?

Hey Ice Machine: All the members of the band have been playing in the local Boston music scene for a long time in some pretty great bands (Fuzzy, Frank Smith, Mittens, Come, Muy Cansado, Thalia Zedek, Consonant, etc.). We decided to get together and jam and write some songs. We kept it relaxed and really had no expectations other than to hang out and play music. In the end we wrote a lot of great songs and decided to put out an album.
