The popular East Bay post punk band, Mall Walk will be performing live with fellow Bay Area based band, Dead Meat (Dead Meat recently moved to San Francisco from Miami, Fl.). The bill is eclectic due to the 50/50 local and out of town spilt. The influential Olympia/Seattle, Washington band, Naomi Punk will be traveling to play at Brick and Mortar Music Hall on March 11th, along with NYC based avant punk band, PC Worship.

Cathedrals Release "OOO AAA" (Tunji Ige Remix) From Blush EP Due Out 2/14

San Francisco based experimental pop band, Cathedrals have released a dark and sexy remix of OOO AAA. This song is a super sexy downtempo track that sounds like Lana Del Rey packing a punch of both soul and elegant confidence. So good! This track is from their upcoming remix ep, Blush EP. The new release is due out on February 24th through Neon Gold Records.

Sadly the duo's two shows on February 27th and 28th at the Independent are completely sold out. Better luck next time! Keep an eye out for more of Cathedral's new music!

Best of SF Bay Area 2014 for Emerging Artists: FINAL RESULTS: 1. Down and Outlaws, 2. Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah, 3. Assateague

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging SF Bay Area Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and somewhat excruciating) process, but we pulled it off with remarkable flair!

Kudos to garage rockers, Down and Outlaws, our new Deli SF Bay Area Artist of the Year!!!

Thumbs up to the awesome psych- soul band, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah:

And to the great indie-folk band, Assateague:

Here is how it all went down: first, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees. Then we polled a list of 15+ SF Bay Area scene expert (our jury) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each. Then we polled our writers, then we polled our readers. We tried to keep things open for each single genre, from Indie Rock to Roots Music to Hip Hop.

If you are a geek interested in all the subtelties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules here (happy reading!). But if all you care about is the awesome new music SF Bay Area produced in the year 2013, this list is all you need. Enjoy!
