The Deli SF's Weekend Highlights For 10/21-10/24

While many may still be musically burnt out from Treasure Island, another week presents us with another round of selections from the calender.

Thursday night at Milk Epic Sauce will be putting on one of it's biggest shows to date. With French Miami headlining along side Religious Girls, Copy, and Guidance Councler, the later two both of Portland, this should make an excellent night to be up on Haight St, 8pm.

Friday night head over to the Rickshaw for Bare Wires and the Burnt Ones opening up for Pierced Arrow, 8:30pm. 

Saturday take yourself to Thee Parkside for Budget Rock 9 featuring Skipper, Shannon and the Clams, Tropical Sleep, Larry and the Angriest Generation, and Midnite Snaxxx, 2pm.

Shapers' Virginia Reel

It wasn't that long ago that we were singing the praises of the debut album, Little, Big, from Shapers. However, they have already recorded a new single that will be released by Whistler Records on November 16th. The single features "Happy Birthday Polliwog" and "Virginia Reel". The band has made a video for "Virginia Reel" and will be celebrating the release at Empty Bottle on November 15th.


I Fight Dragons are Back

I Fight Dragons have been hard at work preparing their next release for their label Photo Finish Records. They will be releasing a new EP next month and celebrating the release at The Metro on Saturday, Nov. 27th. We have an early look at the EP with the song "She's Got Sorcery".

The band will also be live tonight on ustream.tv. They have ustreamed most of the recording process, and will be continuing the fun tonight.


Music that takes you back home: Backwords play CMJ on 10.22-23

If at some point, during this CMJ madness, you were in desperate need for some warmth and "homeyness" in musical form, we recommend you head to one of the two Backwords' CMJ shows (at Sycamore in Ditmas Park on 10.22 and Kenny's Castaway on 10.23.) This Brooklyn based band blends folky and old timey music with gentle psychedelic pop influences reminiscent of Flaming Lips and Grandaddy. Their music is soothing, but weirdly so, in a lo key, unassuming, almost bucolic kind of way. Brian Russ' vocals sing stories full of wisdom through timeless melodies. These guys might not be the kind of band that gets hyped by the blogosphere or in Pitchforkshire, but they sure are doing something nobody else we are aware of is doing in NYC right now: unpretentious, mellow psych folk that speaks to the heart.
