DRUNK LIPS - SILVER DOLLAR FRIDAY

Drunk Lips are a dirty rock n roll band from Toronto. They should be categorized as "Drunk Rock". They got perfect party tunes. Crunchy guitars rumblin over beefy bass lines and slammin drums. Oh yeah and there's hot chicks in the band too. What else are you lookin' for on a Friday Night. They released an EP last year called "In My Brain". 7 tracks of garage rock madness. Guess what? It's only 2 bucks on their bandcamp page right now. I feel a bit of a 90's thang happenin' deep down inside of Drunk Lips...they could play at Gasworks from Wayne's World. In reality they play The Silver Dollar Room on Friday! - Kris Gies





New Music Video: "Mud" - Alex G

Alex G gets wet and trips out in the woods in his latest video for "Mud." Starring with Emily Yacina, who also provides backing vocals on the track, the two enjoy a rainy day away from the concrete jungle of Philadelphia, but its streets leave a lasting impression. The music video was directed by Colin Acchione, who is the brother of Alex G's guitarist Sam Acchione. They'll be co-headlining Union Transfer on Thursday, April 14 with Porches.

Problem People @ Whistler

Problem People releasing their self-titled album on vinyl via the local label Tic Tac Totally. This is their first vinyl release, and the first on TTT. The album, available now of bandcamp and spotify, is a '90's lo-fi fuzz-rock throwback, and truly is a must listen.

You can catch Problem People with Deadbeat at The Whistler on March 16th.

Girlpool's Harmony Tividad Steps Up to the Plate at Everybody Hits March 8

Harmony Tividad (of Girlpool) steps up to the plate at Everybody Hits this evening. With a minimalist, melodic approach, her songs etch an earnest understanding of the transitions and adjustments associated with adulthood. The sheer simplicity and somewhat confessional sound seems addressed to the individual, releasing a revealing internal monologue expressing an array of emotions - anguish, disappointment, hope etc. Exposing these private thoughts publicly gives rise to universal a feeling. With a new record almost completed, Slaughter Beach, Dog (a.k.a. Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball) captures expressively detailed snapshots that shed the protective outer layers, placing the nerves out in the open. They'll also be joined by Cold Foamers, who recently released a new EP Musketball, and the sincere folk-pop of Florist completes a night at the batting cages that hits home. Everybody Hits, 529 W.

DOUBLE PREMIERE: Melt - "Take a Walk" & Mister Tang - "Where You Goin?"

If there's one thing Portland can seem to do right, it's produce some fun lovin', beer chuggin', good ass garage rock. Today, the Deli is premiering two new, soon to be hit singles from a couple of the best garage acts in town, Melt and Mister Tang. Both bands share a member or two, but don't think that makes them in any way the same.

Melt's single, "Take a Walk," coming off their upcoming Fun House tape, takes a fuzzier surf route to the genre, with Jeff Tang's vocals being refreshingly nostalgic to the genre's predecessors.

"Where You Goin?," the Mister Tang track on the cassette of the same name, is grittier, more raw, and straight up rock n' roll. Stone Tang delivers the lyrics frankly and unforgivingly in your face, drawing you in.

Both Mister Tang and Melt are also going on tour together in celebration of the tapes' releases, which are both dropping within days of each other. To kick it all off, a show featuring both of them, the Deli Portland Emerging Artist of the Month nominees A Volcano and a famed special guest will be happening next week, March 10th, at the Liquor Store. Cassettes and tees will be available to fund the tour. It'll be an auspiciously awesome situation for everyone involved, so be sure you're there to witness it. You'd be Better Off Dead than missing it.
