Kick off 2018 with Milk Was A Bad Choice (1/3)

If you’ve already cycled through your usual list of New Year’s resolutions and none of them seem worthwhile, then you’ve come to the right place. The Deli SF has the perfect idea for what to change in 2018: go to more local shows! Thankfully, the monthly Milk Was A Bad Choice showcase is giving you the perfect place to start, with a lineup that cannot be missed!

The January installation of MWABC will feature the R&B-infused pop of Sacramento’s So Much Light, who recently released the whimsical, electronic-heavy LP Oh, Yuck. There will also be performances by SF locals Le VICE, a truly one-of-a-kind act that creates an eclectic mix of hip-hop, pop, and soul. Bassist and songwriter Alex Szotak, who has previously worked with other favorites BOSCO and Soft Glas, will also be making his live debut. - Lilly Milman

Make sure to start the year off right by stopping by the Milk Bar on January 3rd, and until then, stream one of Le VICE’s past live performances below.

New Release: Le Vice's 'Neverland' + Local Tour

Bay Area based indie hip-hop band Le Vice classifies itself as Urban-Indie-Rock- Electro-Funk-Hip Hop-Pop, but we just call it good music.

It is easy to fall into the pit-trap of trying to pin down their sound. Le Vice could be described in a myriad of different ways from hip-hop curators to playful grunge revivalist and nothing would sit out of place with its music. They've been steadily making music since 2010.

The band’s latest release, Neverland (download here), oscillates between insightful musing on city life and coy jabs at popular culture; the title is in reference to the famous Neverland of Peter Pan. Singer Alex Lee’s lyricism is a straightforward slap in the face. Leedoesn't miss a chance to flip phrases or slip in a name drop. A stand out moment during one of their more electro-funk songs "Pho Q (We Just Wanna Dance)" is when a line from the bridge "life is too short" becomes a shout out to the rapper Too Short by adding a refrain on the end reminiscent of the rappers favorite word.

To know and love Le Vice is to see the band live. Local tour dates are listed below and on the band's website.
