Maggie Rogers takes things to the next level with trilogy of videos and tour

After being blessed by Pharrell Williams' seal of approval, which got a lot of eyes on her and ears on her track 'Alaska,' NYC's songwriter Maggie Rogers is trying to capitalize on the attention by unveiling a trilogy of videos featuring that single and two new songs. The second one of the series, 'Dog Years' (streaming below), resumes the atmospheric, electronic-pop-soul sound of 'Alaska', including the subtle African music influences. Maggie has also announced three legs of a winter/early spring tour that will take her - between January and April 2017 - from the east coast to Europe to the west coast and back, with a final date at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on April 11. We are sure the third video will drop just before the tour begins, in early January.

Con Brio Returns to the Bay Area for a Special Three-Night New Year's Eve

Con Brio is going to play three nights in San Francisco for New Year's Eve! The San Francisco based 7-piece band will showcase music from their electrifying album, Paradise (produced by Mario Caldato Jr.), with three Bay Area shows leading up to New Year's Eve, including at City National Civic (San Jose) on December 29, 2016 and two back-to-back nights at The Chapel (San Francisco) on December 30 & 31, 2016.Lead singer, Ziek McCarter's magnetic live performances with his swiveling hips, splits and backflips, have earned him frequent comparisons to a young Michael Jackson and James Brown.

On Paradise, McCarter's lyrics tell stories about modern life through its contradictions. Narratives highlight police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement (the band's first single, "Free & Brave"), the struggles of city life ("Hard Times"), the rejection of societal pressure to equate success with a paycheck and abandon one's dreams ("Money"), and of course love ("Honey").

Don't miss them live this New Year's season!

12/29 -- City National Civic -- San Jose, CA
12/30 -- The Chapel -- San Francisco, CA
12/31 -- The Chapel -- San Francisco, CA

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

The Vernes came together because its members lacked “anything else going on.” So guitarist Fabian Mera and bassist Robert Sesma took what sounds like a ridiculously long trip on a Greyhound bus, from Oakland to New York City, to come stay in frontman Matthew Gragg’s apartment. NYC didn’t turn out to be the “right fit” for them, which is lucky for us. Together, with Pat Degan on drums, the garage-pop foursome is part of the welcomed migration of talented, young artists continuing to flow into our City of Brotherly Love. Take a listen to The Vernes, and get to know our new Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner a little better HERE! (Photo by Cara Stefchak)

New Music Video: "A Message to Your Jealous Boyfriend" - Sad13

We recently shared the '90s-style group dance video for the consent-pop anthem, "Get A Yes," from Sad13, a.k.a. Sadie Dupuis of Spedy Ortiz, earlier this month. Well, she's already back with more visual stimulation and her touring bandmates for "a message to your jealous boyfriend". The single "is about how important it is to trust your partner’s friends, regardless of those friends’ gender identity (because to do anything else is some heteronormative toxic B.S.!)." She also recruited BuzzFeed Video's Sara Rubin, whom Sadie befriended as a child at Buck's Rock Performing and Creative Arts Camp in Central Connnecticut, to direct the video. "A Message to Your Jealous Boyfriend" can be found on Dupuis' solo debut LP, Slugger, out now via Carpark Records.

Emanuel and the Fear play Knitting Factory on January 10th

Ring in the new year with eclectic orchestral six-piece Emanuel and the Fear at Knitting Factory on January 10th. The band had quite a productive 2016, between releasing their latest EP Primitive Smile and going on a trailblazing tour through Europe last November. They posted an Instagram in early December stating that they were "Back in the office. Lots of exciting things to come. Stay tuned." This can only mean more music and electric live performances from the group. If you're a fan of orchestral pop drawing from the styles of Arcade Fire, ELO, or Sufjan Stevens, jump on the bandwagon and treat yourself to Emanuel and the Fear's body of work.

The opener for this show is indie pop artist Frances Cone, who released her single "Arizona" last January and set off from there on a whirlwind year of playing around NYC and the Northeast. Head to Knitting Factory on January 10th to hear both her and Emanuel and the Fear perform. - Will Sisskind
