Somerville hosts Joe’s Jazz and Blues Fest June 19-27


In his youth, Somerville Mayor Joe Curatone blew some trumpet in the Somerville High School Jazz Band. In tribute to those days, he’s invited the city’s High School Jazz Ensemble to kick off eight hours of free, live jazz and blues at Powderhouse Park, this Saturday, June 19, from 12PM-8PM. Encompassing a broad range of styles, the line-up includes Professor Harp, Brendan Hogan & Band, Evan Marien Trio, The Ben Powell Quartet, Eric Hofbauer and the Infrared Band, Peter Parcek 3 and the Camelia Latin Jazz Sextet.

The Powderhouse Park event is just the kick-off. Local jazz and blues talents will be featured throughout the following week at Somerville venues, Bloc 11, P.J. Ryan’s, Precinct, Johnny D’s and Sally O’Brien’s. On June 27 at 3PM, at the Nave Gallery, the blues will turn to green, as a set by the Ruth Ristich Trio with The Sisters of Swing, serving as a fundraiser for environmental group, Groundworks Somerville brings the festival to a close.

You can find a complete schedule with artist profiles, here.

End Love

Ok Go has released a video for their track “End Love”. Possibly known more for their videos than their music, this one finds the group practicing their moves in the park in Datarock-esque tracksuits. However, there is a video contest that goes along with this that you can check out on Facebook.



Hey Champ have released the video for their track "Neverest" from their debut album Star which will be released on July 13th. The album can be preorder right now on the band's website for just $4.99.

Prior to the band's appearance at Summerfest on the 26th they will be performing at the Art Institute on June 25th.


Return of the Teenage Cool Kids

The Teenage Cool Kids will descend upon Austin once again...down from their faroff home of Denton, TCK return after making previous appearances during the Chaos in Tejas. The band, carrying with them critical love (and multiple Built to Spill and Meneguar comparisons), will take the stage at the Mohawk this June 25th. 


The Deli SF's Weekend Highlights For 6/16-6/20

Another week upon us as we trundle into the summer, and there are quite few shows ahead that surely would go to waste without your ears and attendance.

For some dark and brooding Joy Division-esque drone-rock head up to Kimo's on Wednesday the 16th where The Sharing Type, newcomers to the San Francisco music scene, will be playing their first show with Portland's brilliantly colored Pink Noise and Spiro Agnew, 9pm.

Thursday at the Rickshaw, get your best nerd-rock on with the forever bubbly My First Earthquake, who will be celebrating the release of their latest EP, with The Downer Party, and The Attachments, 8pm.  Should you desire, acquire yourself a FREE copy of My First Earthquake's EP Crush here.

Close out your working week by loosing yourself Friday night in the swirling psyche sounds of the remarkably named LSD and The Search for God at the Hemlock.  They will be playing with The Meek and Fuxa, 9pm.

Lastly on Sunday, head back over to the Rickshaw to have your noise centers stimulated by Weekend who will be sharing the stage with New York's thunderously loud A Place to Bury Strangers and Light Pollution, 7:30pm.

That about covers it for this week.  Enjoy your weekend, and if you still have some energy on Monday, Brian Jonestown Massacre will be playing at The Filmore.
