2nd annual Tour de Fun Saturday, 4/9/11

I don’t think Murfreesboro gets enough credit. I know its music scene is largely reliant on house shows, but the music community is close-knit and talented, and for those who don’t believe it, consider making the drive this Saturday for the 2nd annual Tour de Fun. It’s a free community bike ride that stops at a series of local house shows throughout the day and into the wee hours. This music festival on wheels was pioneered by Tyler Walker of Blastoids, Awesome Shirt and Meth Dad. Walker wanted to create something that would reflect the essence of the Murfreesboro music scene and show that it’s thriving. He pulled it off pretty successfully in the first year, with over 30 bands and about 300 in attendance.

Things will kick off at noon this year with a barbecue at Murfreesboro Outdoor and Bicycle (MOAB) at 310 N. Maple Street with performances by Cherub, Schtompa and Prophet Nathan. Two or three bands will play 10 minute sets at each house. The lineup includes bands mainly from the boro, both new and returning from the first Tour de Fun, like Turtle Bangs, Yoseph y la Zilla and Hanzelle. There’s a raffle, too – last year, $800 worth of bike gear was given away. The night ends with a final set at The Temptation Club. For a route, lineup and additional information, see the Tour de Fun Facebook page. Check it out, folks. This thing is legit. – Jessica Pace


FINAL Tickets for Day Glow Party w/Diplo to Be Released Today!

Diplo retweeted earlier details about the release of the FINAL tickets for the SOLD OUT Day Glow Philadelphia: Escape Reality Tour (“World’s Largest Paint Party”) that is happening at the Naval Yard on April 15. The release of the last 200 tickets will be at 4pm today. Damn that shit is expensive! But here’s your second chance to take a lot of psychedelics and smother yourself and others in day glow paint while wilding out uncontrollably to Diplo spinning. And you don’t even have to clean up afterwards. Well, maybe yourself, but not the place. You can purchase the final tickets HERE. Good luck! - The Deli Staff

Hussle Club releases new video for "Quaranteenager"

Sounding like a hybrid of early NIN and The The, NYC's Hussle Club is one of those bands with a sound that doesn't go unnoticed - you could actually say the same for their singer's look. The band just released this video of the single "Quaranteenegers".


Where Is My Mind?: Work Drugs’ Thomas Crystal

The band Work Drugs is a good example of how powerful the internet can be. In less than a year or probably more like six months, the crew of Thomas Crystal and Benjamin Louisiana with seductive additional vocals from Joan Wellfleet have gone from tinkering around at home and recording tracks to kill time and their left over beer to heading out on their first tour with Two Door Cinema Club (which they will begin tonight at Varsity Theater in Minneapolis) and performing at their first festival with acts like The Raveonettes, Cursive, and Daniel Johnston (which is quite impressive, especially if you’ve ever tried to do booking for your own fledgling band). Well, we had a chance to find out a little more about the relatively new act from Work Drugs’ Thomas Crystal after their debut live performance this past Friday at Johnny Brenda’s for Yvynyl’s showcase with Summer Fiction, Snowmine, and Guitars. You can read about what went down HERE.
