Pissed Jeans to Perform at Andy Kotowicz’s Family Foundation Benefit

According to Pitchfork, Pissed Jeans will be performing at the benefit for the family (wife and baby daughter) of tragically fallen former Sub Pop Records VP Andy Kotowicz, who was in a fatal car accident on Oct. 24, 2010. The event will be on Dec. 4 at The Showbox in Seattle, and will also feature performances by Mudhoney, Shabazz Palaces, Wolf Eyes, Vetiver, Fruit Bats, A-Frames/AFCGT, and Michael Yonkers. If you’d like to make a direct donation to the Andy Kotowicz’s Family Foundation, please do so here. As you may or may not know, Kotowicz played an integral part in bringing Pissed Jeans into the Sub Pop family so this will certainly be an emotional performance for them. We wish comfort to all for their loss. - The Deli Staff
 

The Black Cab Sessions Pickup Grandchildren and Reading Rainbow!

Well, it looks like Philly artists are experiencing a bit of a British Invasion this week. The Black Cab Sessions is an interesting video series definitely worth checking out where you get to see some of your favorite artists stuff themselves in the back of the mobile studio and pull off a tune through the bumpy streets of the city, which is usually London. Looks like they wrapped-up their session with Reading Rainbow yesterday before the couple headed out on tour, and are currently in NYC/Brooklyn recording Grandchildren before our much beloved West Philly crew performs at ultra-cool Brooklyn DIY space Glasslands Gallery for the first installment of a monthly showcase by Tell All Your Friends PR. - The Deli Staff
 
Update: The Black Cab Sessions also picked up Spank Rock, Plastic Little and Strand of Oaks w/Chris Ward from Pattern Is Movement.

Get your dance fix this weekend w/ CALVERTRON & MAYHEM

For those of you who haven't noticed, Nashville doesn't have a massive dubstep/DnB/house music scene, BUT for the few artists and DJ's who are involved in it, they are top notch and high quality. This Friday at Mercy Lounge is going to be a kickass show featuring DJ's CALVERTRON from the UK and MAYHEM (Atlanta), with  local openers DJ Wick-iT, G-lux, TX300, JusJoshua, and Eric MasQ. I'm most excited about DJ Wick-iT because he'll be layin' down the DUUUUBBB portion of the night, but this is going to be a spectacle. Just watch the promo video, and go here to check out more details. Shows like this don't happen in Nashville too often, and if you're not familiar with house, jungle, DrumsnBass, or dubstep, you should begin your familiarization by stopping by Mercy Lounge on Friday night. Check here for more details.--Deli Staff

New NYC residents: The Young Friends - Live at Glasslands on 11.11

The Young Friends - the rock group with the second most generic name ever after "The The" - ise a fun party band that recently relocated from Phoenex to Brooklyn. So far the Big Apple treated them well: they played this year's NYC PopFest, and got blogged by Brooklyn Vegan like... 2 hours after they moved here  (something that will surely irritate many long time NY based artists).
Their story actually bears surprising similarities with the one of NYC's own beach boys The Drums, a band that's been very supportive with them (Holiday Records, run in part by Jacob of The Drums, released YF's first single) and with whom they seem to have a lot in common also on a musical level: fast paced, bouncy rhythms + ultra catchy melodies + sparse, simple arrangements + preference for clean guitar tones + alto male vocals. The Young Friends are actually very young (the core duo is 17 years old) and surely talented, and they have plenty of time to work on their sound in a more personal direction - before they'll have to change the band name... I mean, I don't think anybody over 25 would wanto to play in a band with that name, right? The band will play Glasslands tonight with Warm Ghost and Grand Children.
