Free Week Continues...Look After Your Scorpion Child

The very very Austin phenomenon that is Free Week is in full swing, and the cornucopia of live music to be heard at Agent Zero prices includes - and we're just talking about Wednesday night here - Scorpion Child at the Mohawk, Midgetmen & The Gary at Red 7, Mobley at Club Deville, Wine & Revolution and Hollywood Gossip at The Parish, Strange Attractors and New Roman TImes at Beauty Bar, and Brothers & Sisters, The Laughing, and Oh No Oh My at Emo's.

That list is by no means comprehensive. Those are just samples - there's a handful of up & comers at every Free Week venue. If you spent 2009 thinking about seeing more live music in 2010, spend 2010 seeing more live music, and thinking about spending more time on your couch. Just to mix things up.



Sorry for the interruptions...

Deli Readers,

The Year End Polls are bringing in a lot of traffic and our server provider doesn't like that - they suspended our account for a few hours because of eccessive load on their server's CPU. We tweaked the site's settings on our end and hopefully we won't have this problem again.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!

The Deli's Year End Best: Submissions Closed, 2nd phase starts in January

Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweethearts in Bands,

As usual, The Deli's Year End Poll (for emerging artists) will assign the cover of our Spring Issue 2010. The polling process is as complex as rocket science (if you want to try and get your head around it be our guest and go here).

The submissions for the open contest that will select minimum 3 artists for the next phase is now closed. We are currently receiving the jurors' votes. The next phase will be the readers' vote, which will start on January 3.

All the bands that submitted to our open contest were also added to our chart system for indie artists - which will get them some exposure in the future. 

Here we are taking a little bit of a holiday break - we'll still have some content up in the next few days, but not as much. We will see you back in early January - in the meantime Happy Holidays to you all!!

The Deli's Staff
