Weekender Opening for Gringo Star at Ortlieb's Oct. 7

It looks rather grim and grey as I peer toward the heavens and my mind drifts toward the weekend. However, the tipping point lies in a show this evening at Ortlieb’s. Weekender navigates through the mountaintop fog with fuzz-spiked rock and a calm resolve trampling through the terrain in a manner that echoes of Britpop in a refreshing riff-propelled-floating-vocal-psych-stamped way. The trio of Satellite Hearts tethers an assortment of influential sounds, pulling Justin Pellecchia’s cooing vocals soaked in attitude and meshing it with purposeful guitar licks and a rumbling backend that’s garnered Desire Forces the Flow a frequent rotation spot. Sprinkling in classic R&B, a garage punch, onto a psych-rock scenario, Atlanta’s Gringo Star headline. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 9pm, $10, 21+ (Photo by Jen Bragan) - Michael Colavita


NYC Bands to check out at CMJ: Corbu, live at The Wick on 10.16

Brooklyn based musician Jonathan Graves is the brainfather of Corbu, a musical and visual project that produces intensely dreamy pop music (and visuals), and which received a fair amount of attention in 2014 with single 'We Are Sound,' a foggy number that sounds to us like a sonic concoction of glorious UK band Doves and the Smashing Pumpkins' unforgettable single '1979.' Fans will have the opportunity to see Corbu live next week during the CMJ Music Marathon, at The Wick on October 16.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Richmond rockers Hoax Hunters to release new album Clickbait, 10/16

There’s no deception with Richmond’s Hoax Hunters: they just rock. The trio makes enough noise to pass as a bigger band, couching 80s and 90s influences into a modern sound. Heavy, brash, loud - quintessential garage rock with just the right amount of lo-fi crunch. Blast your sense with Hoax Hunters and avoid disappointment. They’re putting out a new LP on 10/16 entitled Clickbait, available through Cherub Records, so justify the album’s name and click here to get yourself a copy. -Jonathan Goodwin


The Deli Philly Takes Over Y-Not Radio This Wednesday at 11AM & 10PM!

We're about to celebrate The Deli Philly's 7th Anniversary this Saturday, October 10 at PhilaMOCA with The Orange Drop, Blood Sound, Hello Shark, and Suburban Living (DJ set). Y-Not Radio was nice enough to ask me to takeover its station and play some tracks from up-and-coming Philly artists that I've been listening to lately. You can tune in HERE to what I'll be spinning tomorrow (Wednesday) at 11am and at 10pm (replay). And I hope to throwdown with you this weekend - much love! - Q.D. Tran
