Jump into the New Year with Chanti Darling and Jump Jack Sound Machine

Since we're all ready to long jump the hell into 2017, now's the time to sift through the various activities Portland offers for us to boozily ring the new year in to. One of these tipsy turn ups happens to come from the least crappy thing to come out of 2016 - Jump Jack Sound Machine.

The monthly dance party give us a slight peek into what Studio 54 must have been like, spinning funk, disco, boogie and almost every other genre that used to get rumps shaking. For their New Years Eve bash, some live performances will be added to their usual lineup of DJs, coming from integral starters of the Jump Jack Sound Machine glory. 

The soulful intonations that landed Chanti Darling as the best new artist of 2016 will be bellowing out of the Mississippi Studios speakers, with sexy sashays all along the stage. Natasha Kmeto, who often sings along with Chanti Darling but most definitely can rock the mic solo, will also be blessing us with that beautiful voice.

Unfortunately for most, tickets for this are sold out, but if you've got your hands on some or consider yourself close to a door guy, hit up Jump Jack Sound and sweat this toxic year out.

Artist on the rise: Raia Was plays LPR's "On The Rise" on 02.01

In recent years, West Village venue Le Poisson Rouge has been expanding their booking tentacles to many local venues, and also making an effort (very appreciated by The Deli) to support the most promising local artists with "On the Rise,' a series of shows involving emerging locals. The series' upcoming appointment is on February 1st, with a show involving two acts we've been following for a while in this very blog (Lip Talk and Dinowalrus), and also a very new singer songwriter that's about to release her debut album: she goes under the moniker Raia Was, and she has recently performed at National Sawdust's The Revolution (another series featuring mostly emerging local acts). Single 'Grant it Cause' (streaming below), showcases an intimate sound with ambient electronic elements, and an expressive and soulful voice that strives for sophisticated melodies. Looking forward to the record, expected to be out some time in early 2017. - Photo by Samson Debela.

mewithoutYou's Brother, Sister 10-year Anniversary Show at Boot & Saddle Dec. 29

Last month, Philly post-hardcore outfit mewithoutYou shared a mysterious tweet about a show at Boot & Saddle for the 10-year reunion of a band called The Sun & The Moon Band. A group with no record beyond perhaps the late 80’s brit-pop album of the same name by Chameleons founder Mark Burgess, fans quickly discerned that the show is an intimate performance of mewithoutYou’s 2006 album Brother, Sister. The playful nature of the announcement carried through to the supporting act, dubbed “Rush 2.0”. Fellow Philadelphians Hurry announced the Rush 2.0 set via Twitter as well in tandem with mewithoutYou’s initial post, so it is speculated that they will be performing a Rush cover set. The show is currently sold out, but I’m always a firm believer in the idiom - “where there is a will, there is a way,” especially when it comes to getting into events. However, if that old adage doesn’t exactly work for you, mewithoutYou will be back in town on Friday, January 13, where they’ll be supporting Circa Survive on their On Letting Go anniversary tour. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 7:30pm, $30 (Sold Out), 21+

New Video: "Radio Kids" (AB Session) - Strand of Oaks

Strand of Oaks strips away the arena-rock veneer of his latest single "Radio Kids," opting for an intensely intimate solo performance on a piano for the video series AB Sessions, recorded in Brussels. At its core, you find a song that really doesn't stray far away from the deeply haunting ballads found on earlier releases like Leave Ruin and Pope Killdragon, which is certainly a good thing for those just tuning in. His new LP Hard Love officially comes out February 17 via Dead Oceans, and he'll be back on stage in Philly on Friday, March 10 at Union Transfer.

Rosali Concludes Her Residency at Ortlieb's Dec. 28

Rosali concludes her month-long residency at Ortlieb’s this evening. After a brief reprieve from the bone-chilling canvas of winter, the local singer-songwriter offers soothing clarity in the form of folk-based songs gently gliding over the hillside. On her debut album Out of Love, Rosali's recordings are fueled by floral vocal harmonies and a wandering touch of twang-infused psychedelics. The duo of Kevin Nickles and Daniel Provenzano, also known as The Writhing Squares, will firmly orient their opening set in another world, touching down on intertwining threads of noise-rock, garage, free jazz, etc., while unleashing a sensory-loaded spectrum of space sonics. It's just what you need to get over the final hump of 2016. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 8pm, Free, 21+ - Michael Colavita
