The Family Crest wins Deli SF Best of 2010 Fans' Poll!

Congrats to The Family Crest for winning our Best of 2010 fans' poll. This talented septet plays an intense rootsy pop that borrows the indie rock concept of "loud/quiet/loud" and applies it to an orchestral context, with very convincing results. The band gathered almost 1000 votes, preceding charming diy songsmith Michael Musika and electronic soundscaper Ben Thompson. Here's the Fans' Poll Top Ten - thanks to all the bands for spreading the word about it! The composite charts results (including the vote of our jury of scene makers listed here) will be out early next week.

The Asteroid No. 4 Crash Down at JB’s Jan. 28

Spacey psych-rock outfit The Asteroid No. 4 are performing tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. These Philly music vets have been churning out sun-kissed pop morsels since the 90’s and are nearing the release of their 6th studio album Hail To The Clear Figurines due out on February 8 via The Committee To Keep Music Evil, the label run by the infamous Anton Newcombe of psychedelic peers Brian Jonestown Massacre. Their dreamy nostalgia makes you long for those warm summer days where all you had to do was to hang with some good friends listening to your favorite tunes on whatever hallucinogen was on the menu for the day as your minds and conversations wandered. (Good times, good times.) Also on the bill is most enjoyable spazzy electro group Snakes Say Hisss who sound like Dan Deacon arrangements with Nick Thorburn on vocals. Both acts are opening for Deli NYC favorite Bear Hands so don’t let the weather put you into a funk (not the good kind) and sled on down to the show this evening! Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N.

We Barbarians + Lesands + The Union Line @ The Echo

We first got stoked on Lesands with their live performance during the CMJ festival in New York back in October. The sonic bliss of their 80s chill vibe combined with their quirky stage presence is captivating. They fall into the same category as N.Y. bands Neon Indian or Beach Fossils. Lesands will be playing a show at The Echo on February 3rd along with The Union Line, shining in their soul-funk rock glory, and the ambient indie group We Barbarians as the headliners. This is a fun lineup of talented groups based south of the L.A. commotion!
