Boston Calling Announces Blank Canvas Contest

A little over a week ago, the organizers of Boston Calling announced the launch of Blank Canvas, a contest inviting all interested artists to create a concept for a 36 x 60” mural that will then create and put on display during the fall festival session (September 5-7). Five winners will be chosen from the submissions, receiving $1000 cash (including $250 for supplies) and four 3-day VIP tickets to the Boston Calling, in addition to the vast exposure their designs will receive at the festival.


According to a press release, the idea for this contest came about after brainstorming different ways of trying to utilize the talents of all artists (not just musicians) in the activities at Boston Calling. “We are always seeking ways to extend our connection to the community and further celebrate the talents of the people that make Boston, and the entire region vibrant,” says Brian Appel, co-founder of Boston Calling, in the release.  “At this past May’s festival, every time we saw a blank wall, we felt we missed an opportunity to have an artist display their work.”


All interested applicants must submit their designs via an 8.5 x 11” digital document no later than August 5, 2014. A full list of contest rules and regulations--and info about September's concert lineup--can be found here.

Summer 2014. NYC Issue #39
(10 Year Anniversary!)
Read it here






THE DELI NYC'S TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY ISSUE IS OUT!

On a Friday night of December 2004, at Manhattan venue Sin-e' in Attorney Street, an emerging NYC band with a home recorded debut album played The Deli's launch party. It was a packed crowd and everyone was holding the first issue of The Deli, whose cover these upstarts were gracing. That band was Grizzly Bear. It remains one of the most exciting nights of my life, the night I understood that this magazine had a shot at being here to stay.

Now, this ten-year anniversary issue hopes to be a(nother) celebration of this great scene, in a less cluttered, more narratorial and visually appealing form thanks to art critic Brian Chidester's work as a guest editor. This issue also comes with my deep hope for NYC to keep churning out exceptional music of all kinds for the foreseeable future.

Push Ups Bring In-Your-Face Punk to Cambridge, MA

Normally, The Deli New England only covers actual New England-based bands, but I went to a show a week ago at Charlie’s Kitchen in Cambridge, MA and saw a band from Philly called Push Ups, and these guys kicked enough ass to justify getting themselves on a “New England” blog. The four-piece played a short set (only about 20 minutes), but I’ll be hard-pressed to find more local bands who play with that kind of intensity. Lead singer Zac Beaver was all over the place—literally. He ran up and down the room: jumping in the air, crashing to the floor; he even laid the mic down at one point to do a cartwheel. These guys play straight-up raucous punk and it rules.

After the show, they gave me a CD, Grow Up or Try Dying (the background music to this very review), and I was impressed that their recording holds up to their live performance. The opening track on the record, "College Ruined My Life", sounds like a Bronx B-side and it is glorious. For more info about the band, check out their Facebook page.
