Mission Statement
The Deli Philadelphia is a resource for Philadelphia musical artists and fans. We want to be a place for bands to share their music with others, and for fans to make their own decisions about what local music they enjoy.

CD Submission Policy
The Deli Philadelphia only reviews music from artists based in Philadelphia and surroundings.

At this time we only accept digital submission through our CD Submission System here.

For added exposure, you can post mp3s and a blurb about your band on the local Open Blog [this feature will be back soon].

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!!

While We Slept: Octopus Project, The Mercers, Lions

Every once in a while a couple of things slip through the cracks here…Monday morning seems a good time to rectify that situation.

So: Peek-A-Boo is reissuing the first two Octopus Project records,Identification Parade and One Ten Hundred Thousand Million; those guys are studio-ensconced at the moment and working on the next one. Up above (below our favorite sleeping German punk) is the Mercers’ live set from KUT. And your hometown big game band Lions will in the upcoming issue of Spin…and speaking of Spin, more to come soon on the Local Music is Sexy show.
