Bluegrass survives between skyscrapers: Punch Brothers

The NYC Deli rarely covers bluegrass artists - maybe because there aren't THAT many in this bustling city. But when we stumbled upon musicians of the caliber of Punch Brothers, we felt compelled to write about them. The rootsy combo just released their second full length album "Antifogmatic" - named after a type of 19th century alcoholic drink that was meant as a cure for the effects of fog and other inclement weather. Of choosing the title, singer Thile notes, “Antifogmatic is an old term for a bracing beverage, generally rum or whiskey, that a person would have before going out to work in rough weather to stave off any ill effects. This batch of tunes could be used in much the same way, and includes some characters who would probably benefit mightily, if temporarily, from a good antifogmatic.”


Robotiques with King Britt at KFN June 25

Congratulations! It’s Friday. You survived another week. Dance it up and keep it classy with Robotique. Dusting off singles and disco faves, DJs Billy Werner and Ryan Todd continue their weekly tradition of heating things up on the dancefloor. Disproving the stigma of disco while reviving its funk, Werner and Todd are pure dynamite. Since ‘07 Robotique’s finesse continues to please crowds, easily resulting from the sick beats they spin. Paying tribute to The Loft, these Friday night residents are set to team up with local native DJ/producer King Britt. Aside from his fame in the ‘90s, Britt’s discography showcases over a decade of decadent backbeats meshed with clipped cyclical sounds. Layered with minimal vocals, like Santogold’s “Anne”, King Britt is practically regal when it comes to DJ cred. Add in the prospect of cheap vodka drinks plus $2 beers and you’ve got a night totally worth the hangover. Kung Fu Necktie. 1250 Front St., 10pm, $3, 21+ (Photo by Jason V.) - Dianca Potts



Best of NYC #29: The Drums tour the world in support of debut CD

Singer Jon Pierce is a showman through and through, and he's a big reason why this band is so fun to see. He bleeds confidence and oozes congeniality. Plus, there is plenty of power in his pipes. Along with Pierce (who was in Elkland), The Drums other principal player is Pierce's longtime BFF, Jacob Graham (also in Horse Shoes). But on stage, the songwriting buds come with a crew of four (not counting a couple of female backing singers) to make their pop sound more like POP. This band just knows how to write a song that shimmers and sparkles and jingles and jangles. – it sounds like every song they play is a potential summer hit. The Drums are definitely '80s Britpop inspired, but also are into some strange activity called "surfing," so they rock a sound inspired by that obscure marine activity too. The band released their debut self titled full length CD digitally on June 8 2010 and is currently touring the world - ohmyrockness.com
