50 Free Records

Starting in February, The Whistler (2421 N. Milwaukee) will be giving away 50 Free Records! According the bar, it is their mission to introduce people to the music that they love, so every Wednesday they will be giving away 50 free records to the first 50 patrons who visit The Whistler. Each week in February, it will be a different release from the Whistler Records catalog. In the coming months they will also be featuring exclusive releases from some of their favorite local record labels and bands.


Hair Rocket Release New Video and Launch Kickstarter Campaign!

Our favorite pyrotechnician/Berklee dropout Chris Blassucci is back with his band Hair Rocket. They just released a new video for “OK Alright”, the first single from their upcoming LP Punishment Cookie scheduled for release in April 2011. Hair Rocket has received plenty of help from friends to make this album come to fruition, and they launched a Kickstarter campaign to pay back all their friends who have donated their precious time. Please check out their new music video below by Workers of the East and pay it forward. Thanks! - The Deli Staff


Super fun bill at Death By Audio in memory of Ariel Panero - 02.04

Ariel Panero was a Brooklyn based musician, DIY promoter and band manager who died in December 2010. His friends and ex band mates are organizing a series of shows in his memory. Tonight's bill is particularly interesting, featuring a slew of great local artists we covered several times - we'll list them here in some sort of "poppy to noisy" order: Class Actress, Darlings, Tony Castles, Snakes Say Hiss, Grooms, and Skeleton$. A band called Powers is also playing, but we can't find a website for them. We gave the picture to electro rockers Snakes Say Hiss because we haven't covered them in ages.


Giving Tree Band @ Mayne Stage

The Giving Tree Band will be performing at Mayne Stage tomorrow with Hoots & Hellmouth. The will be performing a new track, "Silent Man" from their next record. The video above is from their acoustic performance for Our Vinyl.


The Union Street Preservation Society at Sullivan Hall on 02.10

Thursday, February 10th, The Union Street Preservation Society are playing at Sullivan Hall. They are an emerging Americana string band from Brooklyn, mixing folk with bluegrass and blues with early jazz. Their music is full of spirited harmonies, fresh new melodies and an authentic energy. The members of the Union Street Preservation Society have distinctive histories--bassist Jason Bertrone studied jazz at Hampshire College, pianist/multi-instrumentalist  Sara Bouchard is classically trained with two of her own albums, guitarist David Lieberman studied cognitive science at Yale, violinist Harrison Hollingsworth is the youngest musician at the New York City Ballet, and legendary guitarist/banjoist Alex Borsody runs two companies and helps The Deli in various way (writing, programming, even mag distribution - hurray for him!).
Joining the Union Street Preservation Society on February 10th will be headliners Greensky Bluegrass and Cornmeal. The show is 18+ and the doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $10 advance (and can be purchased here) and $12 the day of. - Leah Tribbett
