New Single From Burbank International - "2034 (When Machines Start Eating People)"

If you remember, way back many moons ago, there was this little folk outfit, Burbank International, that put out this beautiful album City of Burbank that, as well as being worth much attention from your ears, was made The Deli SF's Album of the Month in November of 08. Well it had seemed, without so much as a peep from them for so long, that San Francisco had succumbed to a tragic loss with the dissolving of H.A. Eugene's folk project; however, with new evidence to contrary, it seems that in fact Burbank International had just gone into to an extended period of dormancy. This week they just announced a new single "2034 (When Machines Start Eating People)," now for sale on iTunes, as well a video to accompany it. If you haven't heard them before you should definitely check out City of Burbank, but for now enjoy the video for this somewhat tragic and immensely beautiful song.  A nice and tender way start to your weekend.

Record Store Day

Yes, tomorrow is Record Store Day, and instead of recreating what others have done I thought I would point you to three great run downs of multiple events, and point out my favorite event. You find solid lists at Via Chicago, Loud Loop Press, and Gapers Block Transmission.

My favorite event tomorrow will be The Loneliest Monk performing at Cyklopx in Forest Park. They perform at 1pm.


Heavy Catamaran

Here is a new video directed by Martin Rodahl for Yea Big & Kid Static’s classic song “Heavy Catamaran” from their 2006 ep The Heavy 7”.


Weekend Warrior, April 16 - 18

What’s our plan for this weekend? We’ll be starting the partying early Saturday at Beautiful World Syndicate to celebrate National Record Store Day by throwing down many beers and hot dogs/veggie dogs (well, maybe not veggies dogs) and rummaging through a shitload of vinyl while Kurt Vile, Creepoid (members of The G) and Rocktits DJs become the soundtrack to our afternoon. And as day turns to night, we’ll hopefully be able to straggle our inebriated asses to JB’s for fun-lovin’, psych rockers The Armchairs who will be opening the rescheduled album release party for Park the Van troubadour Pepi Ginsberg with D.C.’s Exit Clov led by talented cuties and twin sisters, Em and Suz Hsu. We’d also like to give you heads about The Deli’s Best of Philly Showcase w/Reading Rainbow, Grandchildren and Levee Drivers next Saturday which had to be moved from Pilam to The Ox. Yes, yes - shameless promotion, but how else would you know where the fun is at? Beautiful World Syndicate, 1619 E. Passyunk Ave., 12pm - 9pm, FREE, All Ages; Johnny Brenda’s 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+

Surprise Me Mr. Davis is a band and plays Union Hall on 04.16

Surprise Me Mr. Davis is a is an electric-folk band consisting of virginia based folksinger Nathan Moore, the members of NYC/Providence/Montreal avant-rock band The Slip and pianist Marco Benevento. They formed in 2003 in Boston while Moore was visiting The Slip at their apartment and the blizzard of 2003 hit. They were snowed in at the Barr brothers Mission Hill home for five days with a brand new stereo microphone and computer. This storm was the catalyst for a home recording session that cemented the collaboration. Since then, the four musicians have been keeping up with the tradition of meeting before blizzards, hurricanes or other natural disasters that force them in the company of each other and their instruments, as confirmed by the fact that some news channels are reporting that the Icelandic vulcanic ash cloud will hit Brooklyn exactly during the band's performance at Union Pool on 04.16.
