Lips @ The Horseshoe Tavern

Lips-a 3 piece rock band based out of Toronto, they’re a Self proclaimed "terrorist glam rock" band...and I couldn't agree more. Last year they released a track called "Painkiller" with a crazy music video, which uses clips from a short film called "Girl In the Rubber Mask"; written and directed by Franck Blaess. The song is a straight ahead rocker with serious 90s vibes, steady drums rock along in line with the driving bass line as the guitar sprinkles in some tasty treats throughout the verse. Overall the song captures a great vibe, with good harmonies over the chorus, and a singer who doesn’t lack in keeping things interesting. These guys appear to be new on the scene; however, they headlined Lee's Palace last week, if you missed that, you can see them on 08/03 @ Horseshoe Tavern. - Kris Gies

Kat Robichaud and The Darling Misfits Release New Music Video + Play Stork Club TONIGHT

The San Francisco based burlesque -heavy rock band, Kat Robichaud and The Darling Misfits have released a brand new music video. Apple Pie and The Knife is an anthem that fights the unfair epidemic of "slut-shaming" (accusing a woman of being over-sexualized for dressing or acting in a certain way, and sometimes, for no reason at all).

"The Apple Pie and The Knife" is based on my experiences as an aggressive female rocker on The Voice. I behaved the same as some of my male counterparts, but because I'm a woman, it was the double-standard and I got called out, mostly by women, for being boisterous. I was too aggressive on stage. My shorts were too short. "Who did I think I was?" I made the video because I want little girls growing up to know that they don't have to fit into this subservient box and that can be themselves without questioning themselves, regardless of their sex."  -Kat Robichaud

Robichaud made it into the top 10 on the popular televised singing competition, The Voice. She apparently didn't have an amazing experience on the show, but we still love you, Kat!

You can see Kat Robichaud and The Darling Misfits perform live at The Stork Club in Oakland TONIGHT with VOWWS, Survival Guide and Sister Grizzly. This is an amazing line up that will be performing at a grungy rock club in the Oakland. We can guess that the show is going to be raw, in your face and completely unpredictable. That's what rock and roll is all about!





Video Review: "Wrong", by Nemes

It’s not easy to capture a band’s live energy in a recording or a music video, but that’s exactly what Nemes have managed in their new video for “Wrong”, the latest single off their debut full-length album I Carry Your Heart. This recording delivers the same infectious spirit that’s made Nemes one of the busiest touring bands in Boston.  Tightly-layered instrumentation provides support for attractive dual vocals, while Josh Knowles’ spirited violin adds unique texture and depth. Upbeat and deliciously catchy, don’t be surprised to find yourself singing it under your breath hours after your first listen. Catch them live at The Red Room @ Cafe 939 on Thursday, August 6.

The Auras @ Lee's Palace

Hailing from the Greater Toronto Area, a 6 piece psycadellic-garage-pop-rock band, The Auras. I recently found a copy of their EP2 from 2014 and was thoroughly impressed with their catchy tripped out jingles. Listening to the 5 song EP takes you on a ride through the solar system of your mind. It keeps your attention as much as it makes you completely zone out. More recently they have released another EP alongside singer Tess Parks for the track "I Believe In Everything" and her lazy vocals in this track fits the Auras...aura. You won't be able to keep up with all the noise action that comes around so beautifully together. If you're into the whole shoegaze thing you'll dig the Auras and you can see them LIVE at Lee's Palace tomorrow opening up for Ringo Deathstarr.                    - Kris 'Big City' Gies

We'll Go Machete's FIrst Album in a Long Time is a Summer Screamer

MMMmmmmmmmyayah, some heavy shit for ya up in this hot ass week. We here at The Deli dig showin' off some of the genres that aren't always as much in the limelight in Austin as others, and so we're gotdamn pickled to be able to throw you some good ole damn ole hard rocking music today, compliments of Big Chords and Shoutyscreams act We'll Go Machete. These guys released their first album in a while, the (we assume) jokingly titled Smile Club, on July 7, and anyone who was ever into post-hardcore shit like Fugazi, At the Drive-In etc. will eat this shit up they was Jaws from James Bond and metal was a viable foodgroup. There's somethin' artsier and weirder in here as well, with some really strange structures and experimentation with making guitars churn out some fucked up noises, and that the band name checks both Melvins and Slint in the info about this album says a lot about what you can expect. If you gots some pent up aggression and frustration goin' on this summer (who are we kidding, it's 2015, that's everybody) and wanna churn and burn along with some fucking music from the heavy side of the city, you can't do better than Smile Club.
