Taco Bell Feeds Some of Your Favorite Local Bands

This is pretty cool in a kind of gross way. I love fast food even though I avoid it as much as possible. While Taco Bell is rarely in my diet because I’m spoiled by my favorite tacos from Taco Loco (the RV on 4th and Washington), I am completely in favor of supporting the arts by feeding the artists. Taco Bell is running a campaign called “Feed the Beat” where they will be giving some of your favorite bands $500 in Taco Bell Bucks to feed themselves on the road. Local area acts Chiddy Bang, Dr. Dog, Jukebox the Ghost, Terrible Things, Circa Survive and The Wonder Years are among the bands that have been chosen to test out their digestive systems. You can check out the rest of the list here. - Q.D. Tran

Stereogrove's October Precinct Art/Music Residency Begins Tonight

Stereogrove, the Boston-based rock/reggae/funk/hip-hop quartet, kick off an October residency at the Precinct tonight at 9pm.  In and of themselves, they put on a live show more than worth the cover charge; their music is made for the stage, vocals flying or skatting over rhythms by turn rock, funk, dub, and uptempo reggae.  Although it's dance- and energy-minded, the structures are thoughtful and the juxtapositions of jiving, swinging, and diggin' into it are more than interesting fare for those who prefer to sit or stand and appreciate instead.  But consider this a challenge to not, at the very least, tap your toe along to it.

The band has been working on new music and has apparently written four different sets, one for each night, which is quite a feat on its own and promises for a dynamic residency.  And although you'll surely be drawn to the stage by the magnetism of Stereogrove's grooves, this residency sweetens the pot with opening DJ and slam poetry sets, art showcases, live art making, some great supporting music, and live jams at the end of each night.  Check below to find out who else you can expect to see ripping it up - with bills like these, these should be some jams to remember!

The following information is from the band's website.  Each evening of the residency begins at 9pm, is 21+, and has a cover charge of $7.

FYI on DIYs in PHL: Sugar Town’s Sara Sherr

Shuffle through the pages of any mainstream music magazine and there’s one thing you can be certain of: the number of features on men in rock ‘n’ roll far outweigh those of their female counterparts. It’s a glaring, male-dominated gender gap - one that, while not as apparent in underground scenes and alternative media, keeps lady rockers in the shadows. It’s also part of the reason why 40-year-old music journalist/musician Sara Sherr started Sugar Town, a monthly showcase for women in rock ‘n’ roll.
 
Inspired by the Riot Grrl movement, the upsurge of “Ladyfests”, and Fur Salon, a mid-90s queer-punk party, Sherr started Sugar Town a decade ago as a way to spotlight the many women musicians and DJs rockin’ out locally and nationally. Named after a Nancy Sinatra tune - and a play on “Sugar and spice and everything nice” - it’s first show was held on January 11, 2001 in The Balcony at the Trocadero with Sarah Dougher, Cynthia G. Mason and Kara Lafty (ex-The Jane Anchor) and has been a dedicated supporter of the female music community ever since, despite a few needed hiatuses along the way. Sugar Town has two upcoming shows at its homestead Tritone: The Halloween Show on October 30 with The Midnight Beat, Workhorse III, The Tulanes, Death Rattle (featuring members of Fluid’s monthly queer-punk night Finger Banger) and DJ Nattie Ice and November 6 with Amy Klein (of Titus Andronicus, Solanin, and Hilli), Sara Marcus, Bells Bells Bells, and Attia Taylor. Recently, The Deli had a chance to chat with Sherr about Sugar Town’s inner workings, the state of woman in music, and how her event is helping close the musical gender gap. You can check out her thought-provoking perspective here. (Photo by John Donges)

CD of the Month: King Sparrow

King Sparrow has a new self-record that will be released on October 15th in conjunction with a release show at Schubas with Pet Lions and This Is Versailles. The album was recorded and produced by Brian Zieske of Gallery of Carpet. The end product has such a warm and balanced sound. It kicks off with the energetic track "Resonator" which is complete with guitar solo and driving drums.

The pace doesn't slow with blue-collar anthem "Conveyor Belt". "You give up to on, You get up to get off." It's the perfect 5pm rush hour track. However, my favorite track on the twelve track album is "Leave it All Behind". It is the song on the album that adds a refreshing dose of acoustic contrast and it shows that the band can slow things down when they need to. It is also a beauty love song without any bitterness or trickery. The album is filled with great lyrics, inventive instrumentation, and layers of warmth and energy.
