The She's Union Pacific and Dazeys Play Rickshaw Stop - 6/3

Counter Culture and POW Magazine present the Nevada City, CA (we have no idea where that is) based electro-lullaby music group, Dazeys, who are set to support a couple of great San Francisco based bands next week at Rickshaw Stop on Wednesday, June 3rd. Band buddies (bands that know each other well and tend to share bills together when they can) The She's and Union Pacific will be filling out the rest of the bill to play a comfortingly familiar local show. With all the changes going on in the Bay Area music and art scene, it's nice to see bands being consistent and supporting local venues.

We need local bands to continue to play local venues just as much as we appreciate touring bands coming into town to join our local shows and line ups. Do your best to show up, dance around and support this show!





Boston Calling Recap: Krill and The Ballroom Thieves Showcase Wide Range of Local Talent

This past Memorial Day weekend, City Hall Plaza in Boston transformed once again from concrete wasteland into a vibrant music festival. Nestled-in among the marquee acts (Pixies, Tenacious D and My Morning Jacket, to name a few), Boston locals Krill and The Ballroom Thieves left quite an impression on the early-afternoon festival-goers.

Orphan Choir @ Horseshoe

Oprhan Choir is a four piece grunge unit from Windsor, Ontario. The tunes from their "2011 Basement Demos" sound like they came straight from the 90s. The first tune "Red Channels" has element of the Melvins as they chug along with crunchy guitars and raspy vocals. "1983" is cut from the same sweaty cloth. Nice quick rock songs that aren't going to insult your intelligence. They might make you wanna bang your head though. Orphan Choir will be rocking the Horseshoe on Saturday May 23rd. Go enjoy the sludge rock.-Kris"Big City"Gies

Feeling Great About the Release of "Cheerlessness" by Institute

Oh yes, new Institute day is a good day. I've been wanting to post the heavy jangle, effects-lite punk shit that is Institute since I became editor of the Austin Deli, but their (no-holds-barred good) last EP Salt came out in October of 2014, which was just barely, annoyingly out of the range to be considered "news."

Today though, with a fist-shake of gritty happiness, I'm here to say that the wait is over. There is new Institute, and it's them at their fuckitall best. The new track from Sacred Bones Records is thoroughly appropriately titled "Cheerlessness," and as opposed to Salt, which often had Institute sounding like a band made up of people each about to fall apart at the seams in a really good and satisfying way, this new track is tighter and more determined.

The singing, or whatever you'd call that nicely out-of-it noise they're making, still seems like it's coming from a depressed drunk who stumbled upon a microphone just after getting hit in the head by a large human, but now he's in his third song and just doesn't even care enough to put energy into his shit until he just loses it at the end. There's true emotion of the kind the title espouses here, something you really get with the exasperated breath into the mic at the end, and that they layer that whole modern malaised man sound over a non-stop breackneck, clenched-asshole beat and wails from a guitar that sounds like it's dying is just damn good fuck the world punk. Listen below y'all, and get you a beer and a good brick wall alley slouch goin' to make it feel right. The rest of the album, called Catharsis is out June 9th, and you can get tour dates here.
