NYC Artist on the Rise: Wyldlife play Lit Lounge on 10.16

Forming out of Purchase College, Wyldlife quickly strode into the New York music scene with a pair of leather boots on their feet and a mission in their hearts: to bury the days of tame rock and roll. Still digging on their collection of 70′s punk and power pop, perhaps the boys were born into the entirely wrong decade altogether? Or perhaps they realize that to get an audience on its feet, all that’s needed is a fast beat and a good melody sung at the top of their lungs - a timeless simplicity enhanced with refined grit. "The Nicotine EP", Wyldlife’s newest release, is guaranteed to create arguments over which track is best. With a dynamic live show that has been compared to Iggy & The Stooges, The Hives and The Ramones, it seems that all ground is covered. Download their EP for FREE and check them out Saturday, Oct 16th at Lit Lounge. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).

Andrew Bird's Hot Math

Andrew Bird and his label Bella Union gave us a sneak peak at his new album Useless Creatures yesterday. "Hot Math" is perfectly Andrew Bird and in that is something special. His new album features nine new tracks and will be released on October 25th.


Juston Stens and The Get Real Gang Keepin’ It Real at M Room Oct. 14

When you share a birthday with someone like Ringo Starr, you already walk along a path of music royalty. And it’s no secret that Juston Stens has already gained an amount of musical glory hitting the skins for some local band called Dr. Dog. But having made the bold step away from the drum kit and potential international fame to follow his own musical journey, we have to give him props. The Deli likes his moxy and fearlessness. He has been gaining an admirable amount of buzz alongside the Get Real Gang. And whether you sift through his elaborate but interesting bio (did he really rescue Brooke Shields from drowning?) or listen to his self-titled release on Park the Van Records, you can instantly tell that gettin’ real is something Stens is all about. He’ll be opening for Pomegranates tonight at the M Room before embarking on a mini-tour. M Room, 15 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $8, 21+ - Bill McThrill

Serpent Throne Reigning at KFN Oct. 14

Clang that cowbell a little harder for Serpent Throne, the devil horns shone brightly while the band rode the lightning through previous albums Ride Satan Ride and The Battle of Old Crow. But Serpent Throne, whose double powered guitar progressions echo masters like Tommy Iommi and Randy Rhoads, is really ready to pull out all the stops with their latest album “White Summer Black Winter”, which is set to be released this month. The band has also recently become the newest acquisition of Philadelphia’s Translation Loss Records. And when they open up for the crazy, tripped out minimalist movement of Joe Preston’s Thrones tonight at Kung Fu Necktie, it’s destined to be one wicked combo. However, if you are only interested in checking out Serpent Throne and are low on the flow, they’ll be returning to KFNN next Friday for free. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill
