A note from Matt Roth about the NYC Industry article on issue #30

"Hey. This is Matt Roth, from Schwervon!, and the guy that was quoted in the "NYC: State of the Industry" article that starts on page 7 (here). There is a sentence in the article that is bugging me a bit and I feel like it's an inaccurate portrait of what I'm all about. It's in the second paragraph of the section entitled "Olive Juice...." The phrase that I "single handedly" did all of these things couldn't be further the truth. I had a great deal of help from my partner Nan (also in the picture) and many, many others. I could never have done any of the the things I have done, musically, without a great deal of support and volunteer help from friends, family, fans and fellow artists. I really want to make that clear. Okay other than this I found the article very interesting. Thanks." - Matt Roth

Zambri headlines B.E.A.F. Electronic Stage at Brooklyn Bowl with Caged Animals and Aimes

‘Crash, bang, thud’ go experimental pop outfit Zambri’s loud arrangements. Sisters Cristi Jo and Jessica Zambri surely spent many a rainy afternoon as children drumming incessantly on anything around them as their music is partially defined by their large scale percussion sections. Underneath the punishingly thumped drums lie dark, sinister synth arpeggios and wicked pop melodies, which blend together beautifully on their debut album "House of Baasa," an accomplished and truly original piece among the recent flood of New York electronic records. The sisterhood - who recently released the stunning debut album "House of Baasa" - tonight will headline the Deli's B.E.A.F.'s Electronic Stage at Brooklyn Bowl with Caged Animals and Aimes. Door is just $5, so don't you dare miss out, you!  - Dean Van Nguyen


Grace Weber plays The Deli's B.E.A.F. + announces UK shows.

Bright, airy and full of emotion, Grace Weber’s latest album "Hope and Heart" encompasses both sentiments beautifully. Since its September release, Weber has received a significant amount of press, including being listed as Billboard’s “Artist To Watch” and holding tight to a top ten spot on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. Her video for “Everything to Me” (streaming below) appeared on the AOL music homepage, showcasing the soul of this talented songstress. After headlining The Deli's NYC B.E.A.F. Songwriters stage tonight (schedule in the post above), Grace Weber will be heading to the UK in June for a few dates in London. – CM


NYC Band to watch: Wailing Storms - live at Legion on 06.03

What started off as a solo project for visual artist Justin Storms in Texas, "Wailin Storms" has evolved into a four piece punk blues band that has played everywhere from London to Baltimore and is now raising the rock'n'roll dead here in Brooklyn. Storms recently teamed up with members from local heavy folk band "Such Hounds" and digitally released a 4 song EP called "Bone Colored Moon." The noises that they've stirred up are gritty, sparse, eerie, and sometimes punk but it still sounds as genuine as a blind bluesman. Upcoming shows: @ Legion, Brooklyn 6/3, Northside Festival, Charleston, Brooklyn 6/14. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).
