Ghost Of Paul Revere plays Lansdowne Pub on 01.25

Narragansett Beer is celebrating their 125th year of existence and Ghost Of Paul Revere of Maine is helping them celebrate this achievement with their tight harmonies and stripped down Americana. They’re carrying on the folk rock torch by just doing it very well and without being too stereotypical (cue their cover of “Baba O’Riley”). Shows of theirs draw fans from all corners of New England. This free celebration all goes down at Lansdowne Pub in Boston on Monday 1/25 along with The Mallett Brothers Band. - Tracy Troisi

Guerrilla Toss move to NYC + release "Diamond Girls" from upcoming "Eraser Stargazer" LP

Here at The Deli NYC we are delighted to announce that Boston's insane avant-punk group Guerrilla Toss, winners our Deli New England's Best Emerging Artist of 2012 poll, recently relocated to NYC and just announced the release of their album "Eraser Stargazer," scheduled for a March release on DFA records. Although this is a debut in the LP format, the band has been remarkably productive since they started releasing music in 2012, accumulating ten records between EPs and singles. Their music is not for everybody, but those who happen to enjoy Bushwick's night life and seek really noisy and experimental party music might have found a new hero: Guerrilla Toss's post-post-punk is the essence of uncompromising, but absolutely exhilarating, DIY fun, that's at once bodily and brainy. Check out the preview single "Diamond Girls" from the upcoming LP. Sorry Deli New England!

New Hampshire singer/songwriter Doug Tuttle plays Lillypad on 2/27 and Artspace on 2/28

"It Calls On Me" (streaming below), the title track off New Hampshire-based singer/songwriter Doug Tuttle's forthcoming sophomore album, is an ominous yet ultimately sweet portrait of a ponderous mind. Soundling like a mix of The War On Drugs and Simon & Garfunkel, the guitar-plained song has the smooth-voiced Tuttle gazing up at the unknown while dealing with the reality before him. While it may be about "panic attacks and the feeling of being at the mercy of some unexplainable otherworldy force," as Tuttle explains in a Noisey interview, it is surprisingly charming and ultimately compassionate. Ahead of the release date of 'It Calls On Me' on 2/19, Doug Tuttle plays at Lillypad on 2/27 and Artspace on 2/28. - Zach Weg

Providence singer/songwriter Krista Baroni plays AS220 on Thursday (1/14)

Last year, Providence-based singer/songwriter Krista Baroni released ‘The Alabaster Girl,’ an album that quietly revels in a kind of sleepy beauty. Comprised of such guitar-plucked tracks as "I'm Not Myself Today" and "Joanna," the folk-based effort transports the listener as a children;s book would while impressively portraying the hardships of adulthood. The former song, for example, depicts an emotionally wounded soul striving for serenity amidst the noise of modern life, soft guitars cooing the listener to calm. Krista Baroni plays at AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island on Thursday (1/14). – Zach Weg
