Treat Y’r Self Fest returns to PhilaMOCA this Saturday for its second year. The benefit for the annual March to End Rape Culture (co-presented with Pussy Division) will be hosting a day of rad activities to create a safe, inclusive space that is accessible for all ages. Throughout the day and into the evening, you’ll find local favorites like Dreambook, Swanning, and Motherwhore coming together with artist from all over the country to donate their talents to help unify a community for an important cause. Punk legend Alice Bag (of The Bags) will be headlining the music showcase with a new album in tow! And for the first time, Treat Y’r Self Fest will be screening a documentary; Stories From the She Punks was directed by Helen Reddington (The Chefs) and Gina Birch (The Raincoats), and it chronicles “stories of women musicians from the punk-inspired bands of the 70s.” Music critic and author Jenn Pelly will be introducing the film. Kevin Attics (Mercury Girls, Literature) will also be spinning between sets, and Samantha Gurry will be creating some dope hand-cut animated visuals. So come out & TREAT Y’R SELF!

Retail Space: "Getting Older" video premiere

Blending catchy synth pop arrangements and sweet vocal harmonies, Retail Space delivers a song ripe for the dog days with "Getting Older." The video, premiering exclusively on The Deli, serves up classic summer vibes and provides the perfect counterpoint to the lyricism, which explores the bittersweet experience of aging. "Getting Older," manages to capture the fleeting nature of not only summer, but the bliss of youth. Despite the weight that the theme may carry, the video manages to explore this in a way that never dwells too long in melancholic territory, and instead provides a postive narrative that lives in the moment and soaks in the sunshine. Watch video premiere below and check out Retail Space's LP In the Lotia here- Olivia Sisinni





Broken Beak Record Release Show at PhilaMOCA Aug. 19

Melancholy and dissonance merge with post-punk rhythms and an almost folk sense of lyricism to produce songs that grab you by the scruff of your neck and force you to listen. There is an honesty and abrasion that are both beautiful and haunting, which endures from the opening acoustic plucks and kitchen-sink noises to fading strums and a grinding halt on Broken Beak’s new release, Some Nerve. Beau Brynes, along with bandmates Brendan Lukens (Modern Baseball), Evan Clark Moorehead (Weller), and Jeff Malt, will be celebrating its release tonight at PhilaMOCA, as part of their 2016 summer tour. They’ll be joined by Portland, OR outfits Blowout, a powerhouse of sound and fury, and Walter etc., a folk-punk collective that is not afraid to have fun, and drag you kicking and screaming along. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 7pm, $8, All Ages - Keith Kelley





Slight bring their fuzz soaked power pop to Silent Barn on 8.21

While the members of Slight have been busy playing in Painted Zeros, LVL UP, and Normal Person, the trio has managed to find the time to drop two EPs and a single in the span of a year. In the fall of 2015 they released their sophomore EP Hate The Summer, which improved on of their 2014 single Runsoaking their catchy power pop melodies in guitar fuzz. In title-track Hate the Summer the band's fragile vocals, somewhat reminiscent of The Lemonheads, draw memorable pop hooks, while exploding guitars in the choruses channel the raw energy of rock'n'roll. Slight will be playing the Silent Barn on August 21st. - John Honan, photo by Stephanie Griffin

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Roses announce debut full-length, share new single "Accessory"

Roses are no stranges to this blog. From their luscious Dreamlover EP to last year's single "Quiet Time", the synth rock trio has been steadily growing into a bone fide new wave act with their slick, jangly love songs. "Accessory", their latest single off of their upcoming debut full-length Camera Trouble, is another jittery pop cut with a new romantic flair that continues their love affair with bands like The Cure and The Wake.

Camera Trouble is out on October 28 via Group Tightener. The band will be playing new songs at the Hi Hat alongside French Vanilla on September 9. - Juan Rodríguez
