Big Snow Buffalo farewell party at Silent Barn tonight (12.03): Twin Sister, Leapling, Ava Luna, Celestial Shore, Zula

Tonight Silent Barn will host the first farewell party for Big Snow Buffalo Lodge, a small Bushwick DIY venue whose life was abruptly cut short this July by a freaky shooting accident involving co-owner Yoni David. The lineup is nothing short of breathtaking, with adorable electro pop Brooklynites Twin Sister, two bands previously featured on the cover of our mag (Ava Luna and Celestial Shore), and two very interesting up and comers we recently covered (Zula and Leapling). Empress of is DJing.

A second farewell party is scheduled for December 5th at Shea Stadium with a bunch of cool newer bands we'll cover very soon.

Ava Luna plays Brooklyn Bowl (04.30)

How many shades of weird color is your daily dose of awesome? In the grand fabric of your universe, how many textures from your pillow leave nebulous impressions on your forehead far into the afternoon? What tribe taught you to rain-dance? And did they encourage you to hold your lightning rod proudly? Regardless of your answers to these questions, if you're not listening to Ava Luna, your cereal is getting soggy. The band was on the cover of The Deli in the winter 2012 issue just over one year ago, see them tonight at Brooklyn Bowl - more info in the post below.


The Deli/Balcony TV show at Brooklyn Bowl with The Ugly Club, Modern Rivals, Ava Luna, Vensaire

Admit it, most Tuesday nights you don’t have any plans. The Deli is here to change that. We’re teaming up with BalconyTV Brooklyn to give you something fun to do on a Tuesday, and we’re bringing out - if not the big ones - some damn charming guns. We’ve got the airy avant-pop of Vensaire, indie rockers The Ugly Club, Modern Rivals own brand of indie dream pop, and the alternative soul of Ava Luna. This is going to be a show full of experimental sounds and great performances. So come and join us tonight (April 30th) at Brooklyn Bowl from 8pm-Midnight, and give yourself something to look forward to in the middle of the week. Facebook event here. - Lucy Sherman
