SXSW 1st day: Suckers, Black Taxi, Roky Erickson, Okkefville River

The first day of SXSW is like the first day of school; you’re excited, nervous, and seemingly prepared. Unlike school, however, SXSW is never boring. After my first ever flight through Detroit and an early morning dash to registration at the Austin Convention Center, I scampered off to Rusty Spurs for Deli sponsored Music Tech Mash Up party, where line-up improvements kept me corralled. The event spanned two days and squeezed in fifty bands at Rusty Spurs, a tri-room gay saloon (how cool is that?) decorated with cowboy boots and Texas trinkets. The Mash Up party celebrated the collaboration of various industries, music, merchandise, and new media technology. Upon arrival, sound spewed from every corner of the venue as bands performed on the main indoor stage, in the lounge, and on the outdoor patio. Mid-day, the barbeque was fired up to feed South by South West goers with free burgers and chicken while they enjoyed the second day of the extravaganza’s hefty line-up. Some of the early-morning performers included LA-based, disco-influenced pop-rockers, Foster the People, dancey R'n'B from Toronto, Curtis Santiago, and Las Vegas’s new-wave, electro-pop, Imagine Dragons. Pleasant surprises added at the last minute, such as Brooklyn’s Black Taxi, and Washington D.C.’s alternarockers, Hotspur, caught the ears of those passing by and reaffirmed excitement for SXSW.

Following a quick Tex-Mex bite and nearly sun-burning in a line for the Paste Magazine Party at The Galaxy Room, I witnessed the last of the Suckers’ (top pic) set and the first part of rock-meets-singer/songwriter Austinites, Roky Erickson with Okkervil river (bottom pic). The day pushed on as I went off the beaten path to Hyde Park Bar and Grill(South) where The Whiskey Rebellion’s evening of music and literature featured NYC’s The Shake who enlivened the venue’s calm St. Patrick’s Day. Due to overcapacity venues back on 6th Street, my night was curtailed. Tomorrow would be a new day with much music to hear. - Meijin Bruttomesso





Jenee Halstead needs your support!

 

Jenee Halstead, a country-folk singer-songwriter out of Boston is planning a European and US tour to promote her new EP Hollow Bones. The only catch is she needs fans to pledge 2500 dollars in 30 days toward funding the tours. She is playing in the Deli showcase this Friday at the Armory (see above) so obviously we like her. Check out her cute video on her website to see how you can help this lovely young artist get her music across the pond and across the conutry. You can make your pledge and watch the video here.

Deli New England Showcase #2!

deliposter

Deli New England is proud to announce a showcase for the ages. On Friday March 19th at the Armory Cafe, Dan Blakeslee, Brendan Hogan and Jenee Halstead come together to offer a sample of some of Boston's best folk. Blakeslee, a self-described "Artist Musician Type", designs the flyers for each show he plays (see above). He carries the non-nonsense attitude of Johnny Cash, while holding a soft Dylan-esque spirit. Hogan just celebrated the release of his first album, Long Night Coming in January which was well-received. You can read the interview we did with him HERE. Halstead teeters on the rural side of the folk spectrum. Like her influences, Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin, her songs are wise and saccharine with audible roots in the past. We are very excited to present these fine, fine musicians. Dan will be selling his art at the show as well. The Armory is a short walk from Davis Sq T stop on the Red line or Union Sq. There is free parking in the back of the building. It is a large white castle-type building. Can't miss it, just like you can't miss this show! 

BUY TICKETS HERE

Friday, March 19th - 7:30pm - Arts at the Armory Cafe - 191 Highland Ave. Somerville, MA - 7$ - All ages

Joy Kills Sorrow @ Club Passim 3.13

Joy Kills Sorrow  is not an average of folk/Americana string-band. The band is known for genuinely incorporating swing-and-sway jazz rhythms with high-energy roots styles associated with American folk. The talent that makes up Joy Kills Sorrow ranges from the smokey voice of lead-vocalist Emma Beaton to the intense mandolin styling of Jacob Jolliff. A fantastic and fresh sound stemming from old school American sounds.They recently released Darkness Sure Becomes This City in February. Joy Kills Sorrow will be at  Club Passim this Saturday at 8pm. You can purchase tickets HERE.
