The Nuclears to shake up Sunnyvale 10/21

The Nuclears might sound like a some unearthed garage-y gold from your latest crate digging escapades, but the five-piece have only been tearing up the NYC-scene for not even a decade. The band plays raw rock 'n' roll the way your daddy used to like, with all the electricity of old-school punk acts, and they even dabble in dirty rock-a-billy for the discerning rock purist. Check them out live at Sunnyvale 10/21 and be sure to check out their music below. - Olivia Sisinni

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Flamingo Chicks

Toward the tail end of this past summer, Flamingo Chicks (formerly known as Space Cadets) released their debut EP XOXOXO. What originally started as a two-piece project, Charlie Dubuc, Jason Loux, Becka Lundy, and Thor Speeler soon discovered that they “truly clicked” as a quartet, combining their varied and learned musical backgrounds to make cathartic garage-punk that sometimes finds itself wafting over psych-pop terrain (which may stem from their communal love for of Montreal). The band recently found their way atop our Featured Artist(s) Poll, so we are happy to be able to share more about Flamingo Chicks HERE.





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Flamingo Chicks

Toward the tail end of this past summer, Flamingo Chicks (formerly known as Space Cadets) released their debut EP XOXOXO. What originally started as a two-piece project, Charlie Dubuc, Jason Loux, Becka Lundy, and Thor Speeler soon discovered that they “truly clicked” as a quartet, combining their varied and learned musical backgrounds to make cathartic garage-punk that sometimes finds itself wafting over psych-pop terrain (which may stem from their communal love for of Montreal). The band recently found their way atop our Featured Artist(s) Poll, so we are happy to be able to share more about Flamingo Chicks below.

The Deli: How did you start making music?

Flamingo Chicks: We each have our own musical backgrounds (Charlie and Jason have been in other projects, while Becka went to school for classical voice performance and Thor is in school for musical theatre), but Flamingo Chicks started as a two-piece. We found this lineup as a four-piece about a year ago, and realized that we truly clicked.

TD: Where did the name Flamingo Chicks come from?

FC: We were actually originally called Space Cadets, but decided to change it for a name that was more unique and that fit us better. Flamingo Chicks came from a documentary with baby flamingos in it, and we just thought it had a nice ring to it.

TD: What are your biggest musical influences?

FC: of Montreal, Neutral Milk Hotel, Fleet Foxes, The Mountain Goats.

TD: What artists (local, national and/or international) are you currently listening to?

FC: Becka listens to a lot of Kishi Bashi, of Montreal, and Dan Deacon lately. Locally, they love Animal Show (NYC), Kinda Alright (Philly), and Wyldflowers (Philly). Jason loves Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett. Arthur Shea (of Joy Again) and Alex G are Jason’s fav local bands. Charlie has been listening to a lot of house music and math rock.

TD: What's the first concert that you ever attended and first album that you ever bought?

FC: As a band most everyone has seen of Montreal together, and collectively the first album we acquired together was a blues album by instrument luthier Stephen Wishnevski. If you’re interested, give a listen to the psychedelic hymn, “Mr. Gravity”.

TD: What do you love about Philly?

FC: The music scene and the fact that we all met here. Also the FOOD.

TD: What do you hate about Philly?

FC: As with most cities, gentrification is messed up, and Philly is no different in that aspect.

TD: What are your plans for the rest of 2017?

FC: We’re planning on continuing to play shows, write, and record. Keep an eye out for new releases!

TD: What was your most memorable live show?

FC: We just recently played a live show in Hatboro, PA at Big Heads Town and Country. It was our first bar show on a main stage with lights and a sound guy and tons of monitors. We didn’t even know we could sound so tight with that kind of tech! We got a big crowd, and opened up for some INCREDIBLE bands, and got free beer all night. Can’t ask much more than that for a memorable show.

TD: What's your favorite thing to get at the deli?

FC: Crunchy seaweed snacks and EGG FUCKING SALAD!

A Deli Premiere: Def.GRLS' "Good Time," live at Warsaw tomorrow 10.13

Def.GRLS are energy itself, a lazer-light show of heavy psych-pop madness. It’s impossible to listen to their music without feeling the grit of glitter in one’s teeth or hair. Def.GRLS, as contagious as they are, are helpfully releasing their first LP “GRLS GRLS GRLS” on 11.17 to keep the party going. But, just to get a hit of the glitter to make it until then, they leaked their single “Good Time” for us to premiere! Tomorrow Def.GRLS open for Andrew W.K., the party-master himself, at Warsaw. Don’t miss out! --Amanda Ogea
