Insert Bandname Here at DDG July2

North Philly three-piece Bandname is summer personified. Energized percussion with a side of garage rock charm, local favorites keep it DIY with tracks like the endearing “Excitable Boy” with its quasi-punk hooks and riffs. With an ironically iconic band name, Bandname’s stage presence is pure fun. Reminiscent of Tsunami Bomb, this dynamic trio is bound to please. Having opened for equally lo-fi acts like the lovely Vivian Girls, Bandname channels their inner Pavement for “Land War” while managing to mellow out for “Smile”. Add in laid back ballads by Philly/New York outfit Eskimeaux, and you’ve got a deadly concoction equivalent to a musical speedball. Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 9pm, $5 - $10 donation, All Ages - Dianca Potts

Radio Eris Host Multimedia Event at Tiberino Museum July 2

Radio Eris, Northern Liberties, and Da Comrade! are all no strangers to integrating multimedia, theatrics, art, and fan interaction into their sets. So when all three collide all of the above together for one truly madcap show within the confines of the suitably surreal courtyard of the Ellen Powell Tiberino Museum, they’ll be doing it within their element. This bold show will also feature video screenings from Jon F. Allen and others, live art creations to the beat of Blueberry Crush, a performance by Iris Senseless, body painting and so much more. Combine it with the ghost punk barrage of Northern Liberties, the psychedelic war paint tinged thrash of Da Comrade!, and the theatrical space rock of Radio Eris - art and music are destined to come together in ways that you haven’t seen before!

The Deli's CD of the Month: Tremble the Sails - Buried Beds

It’s hard not to listen to Buried Beds’ sophomore album, Tremble the Sails, without wondering how a duo-to-quintet from West Philadelphia could craft such an exuberant ‘60s AM pop record. Offered as a donation-only digital download and for-sale physical release, the folk-pop outfit’s follow-up to 2006’s Empty Rooms is an unswerving love affair with sun-lit harmonies and pastoral melodies - from the swelling opener “Steady Hands” to the playful piano-heavy “Breadcrumb Trails” and all the satiated musical passages in between (i.e. “Your Modern Age”). But what’s best about Tremble the Sails is the lack of continuity in its consistency. Mixed by The Spinto Band’s Nick Krill, the overall delicate charm of Buried Beds’ latest effort is affably rattled by expressive upsurges of satiated symphonies, like on the melancholy Beatles-esque “Mother”, and bittersweet “Grandma’s Bow”. And if only one thing can be said about Tremble the Sails, it’s that it represents the better parts of this city - where underneath streets dusted with tension and grit, there’s a hidden beacon of hopefulness. - Annamarya Scaccia

Night Train with Blood Feathers at KFN July 1

It’s another Night Train dance party tonight at Kung Fu Necktie with special guests Blood Feathers and hosts Ian St. Laurent and Dennis Wolffang. Blood Feathers are the first and lone act signed to the fledgling Philebrity Label. They play traditional upbeat rock ‘n roll with catchy pop hooks, adorned with sweet twangy blues guitar alluding to some deep southern roots, as demonstrated best in their song, “Great God Almighty”. Running the road, knee-shaking kisses, black and white photographs, and your grandmother’s broach will all remind you of their traditional yet universal songs. Their crowd-pleasing sound will certainly be rockin’ the stage this evening! Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 10pm, $5, 21+ - Katie Bennett
