Becca Mancari brings stripped-down, folksy songwriting to the Basement East 7.12

For Becca Mancari, making music is a showcase of humanity. It's evident in her songs the effort to convey who she is, through her confident and evocative alto. Through music retaining the twang Nashville is renown for, Mancari informs all of her songwriting with her life experiences, specifically those that involve her travels—she’s lived everywhere from Staten Island to Zimbabwe. She’ll be playing a show with Bermuda Triangle and Liz Cooper at the Basement East on July 12th. - Lilly Milman, photograph by Zachary Gray

Wilder Maker celebrates new single at Baby's All Right 07.16

On July 19th, Wilder Maker will be taking the stage at Baby’s All Right to celebrate their 7” release, New Streets, with special guests Wilsen and Star Rover. Unveiled back in April, the single features an elegant and silky smooth combination of alt pop, folk, and jazz. Katie Von Schleicher's serene vocals recollect a fun day with friends strolling through Brooklyn, going to parties - and even taking shrooms. The track combines clean and sophisticated chord progressions from Gabriel Birnbaum (also involved in the songwriting) with a sensual incorporation of a tenor sax solo that builds towards an exuberant finale. Check out a live in studio version of the song, below (courtesy thrdcoast.com) and also the other noteworthy single 'Only Child,' streaming underneath. - Pearse Devlin

On Saturday, July 22, catch a special and intimate one-off performance at the infamous Santa Cruz hotspot, The Crepe Place.

Ticket Giveaway: Woods at Underground Arts This Friday

Woods wrote and recorded its latest album two months after the devastatingly shocking outcome of the last U.S. presidential election. The group worked through the trying times to produce Love Is Love (Woodsist), which may feel rather dark at times but actually manages to provide a glimmer of hope that is so desperately needed right now. They'll be bringing Love this Friday, July 14 to Underground Arts, where the Brooklyn indie-folk outfit will be joined by labelmates John Andrew & The Yawns and Cut Worms. To enter for a chance to win a pair of tix, just send an email to thedelimagazinephiladelphia@gmail.com with the subject line "Love Trumps Hate". Please also include your cell number in the body of the message (in case of an emergency). Good luck!

5j Barrow releases folk-rock tune "Sarah Brown," plays Union Hall tonight (07.07)

"Sarah Brown" sounds like that wild Saturday night at a grunge-y, smoke-filled bar listening to hard rock. Or... hard folk? This new tune by 5j Barrow sure rocks and rolls in every sense of the term, except there's also a banjo solo. That's what makes it all the more: there's the expected lonesome beginning, with hollow harmonies and a steadily beating kick drum, which melts into smashing guitars and half-growled/half-shouted vocals by the end of the song. 5j Barrow are clearly heavily influenced by the folkier textures in the genre, but "Sarah Brown" is a wild ride, no doubt. Their forthcoming EP, The Journey: Vol. 1, is out this fall. After a bunch of local dates (Union Hall tonight, Rockwood on the 13th), the band, founded and fronted by singer-songwriters and Broadway actors, Eryn Murman and Jason Hite, will go out on a New England/upstate NY in August. -Geena Kloeppel
