The Deli announces 7 stages at the CMJ Music Marathon 2010

Deli Readers,

We've been working very hard to take as many bands as possible to this year's CMJ Music Marathon. As a matter of fact we aren't 100% finished with booking yet, but close enough to announce that we will have 6 shows and 7 stages during CMJ 2010 - in 5 different venues on 4 different days! As usual, there will be a smosgarboard of bands (around 50) mostly from NYC - including Keepaway, Oberhofer, Brahms, Bear Hands, Anni Rossi, Buke and Gass, The Rassle, The Living Days, Electric Tickle Machine, Chappo... and a welcome bunch of "foreigners" from other scenes we cover, like buzz-bands Blackbird Blackbird (SF), Bad Cop (Nashville), and Strand of Oaks (Philly).

SEE HERE FOR 99% FINAL SCHEDULE

We would also like to thank the 950+ artists that submitted through The Deli to play one of our CMJ parties - a dozen of them were selected by us and the venues. We really wish we could have picked more, it was a heart breaking process...

By the way, if your band wasn't selected for CMJ 2010, you may want to check out this article we wrote just for you, about how to improve your chances to be part of it next year. Hope you find it helpful!

Cheers!
The Deli Staff

Last Minute Plans: Radar Eyes @ Empty Bottle

It has been a busy year for Radar Eyes. They released their debut album (or cassette) via Plustapes back in March to rave review and more recently released a 7" inch through HoZac Records as part of their "Hookup Klub".

You can catch Radar Eyes tonight (9/20) at Empty Bottle playing a free show with Crocodiles and Heavy Times.

   

From Our Open Blog: The Clams

Chicago's own harmonic psych-garage outfit The Clams hit the Beat Kitchen on Wednesday September 22. They'll be playing songs from their upcoming and still untitled psychedelic western epic. Come out and get droned. Check out The Clams on Bandcamp for free song downloads. Joining The Clams is Backwords, who are touring out of Brooklyn. The band has just recorded and released a limited edition 12" vinyl pressing of their album "Quilt", which you can, of course, pick up at the show. Their sound is a stripped-down sort of roots/folk psychedelia, good stuff for any Wednesday night of the year. To tide you over until the show, here's a new music video for The Clams' song "Abreast Abroad".
