The Deli Philly's Best of 2013 Emerging Artists Poll Winner: The Districts

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging Philly Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and somewhat excruciating) process, but we pulled it off with remarkable flair!

Kudos to Americana-rock youngsters The Districts (photo by Harrison Knowles and video by HotBox Studios) for winning the poll! It was pretty obvious that few if any local artists had a better 2013, and things don't seem to be slowing down for the Central PA transplants.

Huge thumbs up to "sex pop" outfit Night Panther and heavy psych rocker Chris Forsyth for placing second and third.

Here is how it all went down: First, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees. Then, we polled a list of 35+ Philly music community experts (our jury) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each. Then, we polled our writers and readers. All were invited to participate.

If you'd like to geek-out to all the subtleties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules HERE (happy reading!). But if all you care about is the awesome new music Philly produced in the year 2013, then check out all the fine homegrown acts below. The talent and diversity in our city is astounding! Also, we'd like to give special thanks to our jurors for sharing their personal favorites with us. Enjoy!

List of Jurors: Dan Bisogno (Y-Not Radio, VICE, AEG Live), Jeff Blinder (Spazz Presents), Gabrielle Bonghi (Philly.com), Kate Bracaglia (Philly.com, The Key), Eric Bresler (PhilaMOCA), Zac Camagna (The Styrofoam Drone), Jessica Craft (Rock to the Future), Ryan Crump (Philly Drum Project), Mikele Edwards (Silk City), Nick Fanelli (The Fire, Guild Shows), Stacie George (Live Nation), Kevin Horn (Underground Arts, Bonfire), Ellei Johndro (Shadowscene), Marshall Kavanaugh (Dream Oven, Little Berlin), Kevin Kennedy (The Swollen Fox), Colin Kerrigan (Out of Town Films, Philly.com), Fred Knittel (Folkadelphia, The Key, WXPN), Josh T.

Night Panther Opening for Brazilian Girls at Underground Arts Jan. 31

Friday night’s about to get a little steamy, because local “sex pop” outfit, Night Panther, will be in the building at Underground Arts. Falsetto vocals and slowed down rhythms make for the perfect last call - “your place or mine” soundtrack. Stir in subtle, disco-revival funk, and you’ve got music to dance, or bump and grind to. Their versatile sound makes it easy to see why Night Panther have become Deli favorites; they headlined at our most recent anniversary show, and their sound won’t stay contained to the local scene for much longer. The stage will also be set for Grammy-nominated Brazilian Girls. The band draws from various dance genres, like tango and reggae, with plenty of electro sounds woven in. Reunited in 2012, the band has been working on new music that’s sure to bring out your best moves. Get ready to sweat and find a partner, because tonight’s not the night for dancing on your own. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $25, 21+ (Photo by Zach Blum) - Shaylin O’Connell

Weekend Warrior, December 27 - 29

So I’ve been really looking forward to attending this weekend’s Weekend Warrior pick. Not only is it a sweet, stacked, locals-only lineup this Saturday with Grandchildren, Night Panther and Purples (ex-Teeth), but it will also take place in my favorite sounding room in Philly, The Boot and Saddle. (Sorry folks, sounds like there might be a new sheriff in town so it might be time for other venues to step up their game.) You should already know how great Grandchildren and Night Panther are live on stage from our anniversary showcases. And older heads (in the know) might still remember how The Teeth helped Philly build its reputation as a “hot” music scene (well, according to Rolling Stone many moons ago) before the floodgates opened. Don’t sleep on this one! You don’t want to leave 2013 like that because I know you’re better than that. The Boot and Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Q.D. Tran

Night Panther Opening for Foxes at JB’s Nov. 29

If you had as lazy a Thanksgiving as we did, you’ll be itching to peel your body off the couch and deliver yourself to Johnny Brenda’s tonight for a concert of up-and-comers starting with local area darlings and Deli favorites, Night Panther. Their self-proclaimed brand of “sexy pop” makes for a uniquely danceable and atmospheric show, and tonight’s set should be no different. Headlining the evening is the 22-year-old Brit popster Louisa Rose Allen under her new moniker, Foxes. After the explosion of success from her vocals in Zedd’s “Clarity” and her debut single “Youth,” Foxes stops in Philly to wind down her U.S. tour before she heads back to the U.K. in 2014. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $15, 21+ - Maggie Grabmeier
