Where Is My Mind?: Reading Rainbow

If you’ve been following The Deli, then last year’s Best of Philly Poll Winners Reading Rainbow (a.k.a. Rob Garcia and Sarah Everton) are no strangers to you. We’ve had great time following all the accolades and opportunities that have come their way this past year. Today marks the release of Reading Rainbow’s Prism Eyes (which can be purchased here) on Hozac Records, but this dynamic duo/husband and wife team (“like Sonic Youth”) already has a new split 7” ready for release in a few weeks. Though life has been pretty hectic, Garcia and Everton were nice enough to let us pick their brains about what’s been going on in the Reading Rainbow camp as well as embracing the dumbness of tweeting, Ancient Astronauts, Antique Road Show, and much, much more here.

Less Than a Week Left to Vote for the Boston Music Awards!


The Boston Music Awards are a big deal. Again, this year they are being held at the beautiful Liberty Hotel (used to be a jail, it's a really sweet hotel, worth it enough to check it out if you are into design) BUT this is about music. They will have live performances by DOM, Barry & The Remains, Jennie Dee & the Deelinquents, Mystery Roar, Kingsley Flood, Kon, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper and many others. In the meantime, VOTE! This is a democratic country (we think) so exercise your right!

Many acts featured in the Deli are up for awards, including Sodafrog,The Organ Beats, Jesse Dee, Club D'elf and the one and only, Tim Gearan.

Voting closes at 5:00PM on Monday November 29th. Winners will be announced December 5 at the Liberty Hotel.


And if you want to buy tickets to this event go here.

The Deli SF's Weekend Highlights For 11/23-11/27

It may be Thanksgiving this weekend but no amount of Turkey will apparently stop live music. For those sticking around the city this weekend, here are a few selections from the calender.

Tonight at the Stork Club in Oakland Man/Miracle will be playing with Seatlle's Lonsome Shack, 8pm.

Friday night dance away whatever weight you may have gained the previous day out at the Knockout where Joshua Rampage of Maus Haus will be testing his mettle as an in house DJ, 10pm.

Saturday catch the dark and drone-y psych rock of Tokyo Raid at Cafe du Nord with The Secret Secretaries, Nectarine Pie, and Fox & Woman, 8pm.

Just a brief look this week. Enjoy your holiday!

Kina Grannis headlines the El Ray Dec. 10th - Free download

With all my indie cred, sometimes it's ok to give into pure pop. It's a guilty pleasure. Kina Grannis is one of those artists; I'll refrain from naming the others out of sheer number. The songwriting is sweetly pure and there doesn't seem to be this forced pretense you find with other artists in the genre, at least not on most of her songs. She independently released her debut LP, Stairwells, in Feburary of this year and has landed her music on a few TV shows like General Hospital and College Life. With a resume like hers, I was a little surprised to see that her Dec. 10th show at the El Ray will be her first major headliner. It should be an interesting night from this girl from Mission Viejo.
