Five years really flies! I remember first catching wind of the Philly local music scene bloggers at The Deli when I caught The Armchairs playing a Johnny Brenda’s gig with Jukebox the Ghost back in early 2009. If memory serves, this was a Deli-sponsored show, they had been around for about six months, and brought in banners and handouts and the whole shebang. I left wondering “who are these folks?” And as I discovered over time, they’re a massively positive group of music enthusiasts as well as Philly enthusiasts, knowledgeable and on point about what’s happening in this city, and it’s been a good deal of fun covering the scene alongside them. So big ups to them on hitting the five year anniversary mark this fall, and what a fun show they’ve got lined up to celebrate on Saturday, October 5th at PhilaMOCA: boisterous indie rock four-piece Literature, sexy groove-pop crew Night Panther, and a costume contest. No kidding. Writeth Q.D. Tran of The Deli in their announcement:
Dig out your finest vintage attire, and join us for martinis and plenty of hard stuff on the rocks or neat at our rad free cocktail hour before the music showcase. We’ll be giving away neat prizes, like R5 show passes and your own personal bottle of Jameson (like mine ;o), for the best time-warping outfits.
More info at The Deli. Congrats, dudes and dudettes. Below, check Night Panther’s Shaking Through session and a track from Literature.
