FREE DOWNLOAD: “Stranger” - Creepoid

We are very excited to be able to offer you a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Stranger”, the new single from Creepoid’s latest two-song EP Graveblanket. If you’ve been checking out The Deli Philly, then it should be no surprise to you that we think Creepoid is creating some amazing tunes. I’ve been blown away by how much I’ve enjoyed every track from such a new band. “Stranger” is no exception. It possesses an eerie, timeless quality. Creepoid will be performing tonight at Tritone on a spectacular rockin’ bill w/Party Photographers, The Sky Drops and Frisky or Trusty, which is brought to you by Sugar Town. I am absolutely pissed that I’ll be missing this one. I’ve been planning on it for weeks now, and I just found out this week that my buddy’s bachelor party is the same evening. I know that there will be plenty of lovely females rockin’ out at Tritone, but I doubt that’s the type of entertainment that he’ll be looking for. On the bright side, I’m going to see many naked ladies tonight. DOWNLOAD “STRANGER” (just click on the arrow pointing down below on the right) and kick back some specials at Tritone! Cheers! - Q.D.

Sunday at The Middle East Up: The Acre, Streight Angular, Night Fruit, Rabble Rabble

 

This show may prove a necessary outing if you fit into one of the following categories:

- You're spending Sunday, 8/1 moving,
- You enjoy rock music (anything from dance-and-sing-along to psychedelic),
- You enjoy fun.

Streight Angular will be performing their new single, "Alright!", as well as the entirety of their album  "After and Before."  Chicago's fantastic Rabble Rabble have made a name for themselves as one of the top live rock acts in their home city.  The Acre will lull with comfortable folk and rock with rollicking blues, and Night Fruit, a wonderfully noisy and driving rock force, will give you a taste of what to expect at August 7th's Deep Heaven Now festival.

Note this show's early start time - Streight Angular takes off at 8:30 pm, so get to the Middle East Upstairs on time!  $9.

Left Hand Does, Free Tonight @ House of Blues Restaurant

I'm still not sure what exactly the Left Hand Does, but it's always good.  And tonight, it (or they) does (do) it for free ($0!).

Once again, the House of Blues Restaurant delivers a perfect opportunity for listeners to drop in and check out a band that may be new to them.  The brother-and-sister fronted band has been making a splash in Boston for their Blur-esque genre hopping, their free mix CD giveaways, their bewitching presence, and, principally, their sneakily yet undeniably catchy and infectious songwriting.

What's more, the band has a recently-released album you can spend that extra admission cash on.  It's the last chance you'll have to buy four unique copies of the disc with four unique covers for just $10 (one copy sells for $5).  With any luck, they'll play their epic Lusica.  Cross them fingers.

Closing the night is the amazing Bearstronaut.  Get there at 9pm and bring your groove.
