The 1st Deli New England Poll comes to an end - thanks to you all!

We would like to thank all the jurors and writers who helped us with their vote put together this list of emerging New England artists. Thanks to the readers for participating and most importantly thanks to the bands for getting the word out about The Deli's poll. 

 

Indie-rockers Mean Creek (in the picture), one of Boston's most talked about bands, won the 2009 Best Emerging Artist - congrats to them! They were a definite favorite amongst our jurors. Mellow rootsy-folk, Michael Bernier and the Uprising placed second, thanks to a strong support from their fan base in the readers' poll, while Boston soul sensation Jesse Dee came in third, gathering votes from Jurors, Writers and Deli Readers. More about the winners coming soon to the Deli, so stay tuned!

Let’s Get Hypnotized - Bloc 11 - Union Sq. Somerville 1/20 TONIGHT!

Wednesday night, in the heart of Somerville’s Union Square, local songwriters Dan Blakeslee, Tim Riordan, and James Houlahan will be performing from 7-9 at Bloc 11 Cafe.  Dubbing themselves as “The Folk Hynoptists,” each of their sets will feature original songs covering a wide range of styles and feeling.  Blakeslee sings of late night wanderings, fascinating characters, and enduring love.  Riordan’s tunes evoke strong connections to the listener, drawing one in with detailed, powerful emotions.  Houlahan combines simple, sometimes traditional melodies with his own twist of folk magic and inventive language.  Hypnotic trances are encouraged.  Regardless, Bloc 11 is at 11 Bow Street, and they feature a variety of beverages and good eats.

Two Wicked Awesome Lizard Lounge Shows

Club D'elf makes it's 2010 debut tonight at the Lizard Lounge (1667 Mass Ave, Cambridge). The band can only be described as experimental-world-jazz-funk with a dash of DJ mixes and a sprinkle of psychedelia (especially their album art!). Bass-wizard, Micro Vard, has traveled around the world (and probably beyond the fringes of outer space) to find instruments, rhythms and styles to bring home to the cozy basement venue. Their work is brilliant and beautifully aged (11 years!) Show is $10. 21+

And, next Saturday the 24th there is a pop-rock extravaganza at the Lizard Lounge.

Oranjuly - 12am

The Motion Sick - 11pm
Brendan Boogie & The Best Intentions (with some special guests) - 10pm
Paul Melancon - 9pm

Brendan Boogie just released a new album, The Sweet and the Brutal last month. Boogie is also responsible for the amazing The Cover-Up shows, which rally a bunch of local musicians to cover songs by awesome bands such as, Queen and the Black Crowes. Oranjuly and The Motion Sick are two of the most raved about indie bands in the city.This show is a must see for the whole family (family members must be under 21). $8 adv/ $10 door and you can buy tickets here.
