Bluebrain, Back in DC, and Performing Live this Saturday

If you’ve ever seen Bluebrain live, you’ll know that their aesthetic endeavors have the two brothers exploring and pushing both sonic boundaries and the visual landscape. When performing live, their haunting and multilayered electronic music, rich in deep tones and timbres, textured with interesting instrumentals and various string arrangements, and characterized by dynamic transitions in pace and rhythm, is often accompanied with strange and mystifying visual effects, making them just as much of a performance art act as it is a music show. So if you’re looking to be wholly stimulated this Saturday night, check out their interactive live performance at the recently opened venue Artisphere in Rosslyn. They’ll be teaming up with other artists like the revered Geologist (of Animal Collective) and a few super secret acts yet to be announced.  Make sure you're there to check out this interesting new gallery-meets-theater and watch as some serious musical brainpower assembles to produce plenty of killer tunes and dynamic art. Who knew dancing to electro music could be so intellectual.

<p><span>After literally and figuratively creating an impressive amount of buzz with their debut album and two follow up EPs, </span><st1 city=""><st1 place=""><span>Baltimore</span></st1></st1><span>'s up and comers&nbsp;Weekends&nbsp;have recently released their first full length record, titled&nbsp;<i>Strange Cultures</i>. Like similar two-man guitar-drums bands No Age and Japandroids,&nbsp;Weekends'&nbsp;Brendan Sullivan and Adam Lempel produce a chaos of sound, full of texture and depth that would make many other larger bands painfully jealous. In their newest collection of songs, Weekends&nbsp;splash a thin shimmery veil of tropical vibes over a mess of noise rock, transforming a seemingly schizophrenic cacophony of guitar wails into something melodic, foot stompingly powerful, and entirely enjoyable.&nbsp;<i>Strange Cultures&nbsp;</i>finds the band bringing all facets of their sound to the table, making for an eclectic combination of head-swirling fuzz that sees the vocals taking a back seat to the scorching guitar lines and rock solid drum licks. The mostly instrumental closer, &quot;Raingirls&quot; is emblematic of their sun-soaked, axe-thrashing sound, part surfer-brah, part punk rocker.</span></p>

The Deli announces 7 stages at the CMJ Music Marathon 2010

Deli Readers,

We've been working very hard to take as many bands as possible to this year's CMJ Music Marathon. As a matter of fact we aren't 100% finished with booking yet, but close enough to announce that we will have 6 shows and 7 stages during CMJ 2010 - in 5 different venues on 4 different days! As usual, there will be a smosgarboard of bands (around 50) mostly from NYC - including Keepaway, Oberhofer, Brahms, Bear Hands, Anni Rossi, Buke and Gass, The Rassle, The Living Days, Electric Tickle Machine, Chappo... and a welcome bunch of "foreigners" from other scenes we cover, like buzz-bands Blackbird Blackbird (SF), Bad Cop (Nashville), and Strand of Oaks (Philly).

SEE HERE FOR 99% FINAL SCHEDULE

We would also like to thank the 950+ artists that submitted through The Deli to play one of our CMJ parties - a dozen of them were selected by us and the venues. We really wish we could have picked more, it was a heart breaking process...

By the way, if your band wasn't selected for CMJ 2010, you may want to check out this article we wrote just for you, about how to improve your chances to be part of it next year. Hope you find it helpful!

Cheers!
The Deli Staff
