Venus Be Fest 2016 at The Pharmacy July 31

One could rest up and ease into the forthcoming week, or one could venture to The Pharmacy this afternoon as Venus Be Records celebrates one year of existence. Among the acts slated for this daylong affair are Roof Doctor, whose latest EP My Band feels peacefully calm as it washes over. You'll also find the boom and bust garage-pop of Line Leader. The incisive, internal, somewhat haunting, folksy momentum of Curtis Cooper ropes one in, while marinated in personal grit, with the touch of transferable energy, The Chelsea Kills. These are among some of the litany of fine acts set to perform today in South Philly. Aside from the ceaseless billing, compilation cassettes will be available as well. Tickets are limited, so get them while they’re hot. The Pharmacy, 1300/02 S. 18th St., 11am, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Pehrspace hosts Pehrathon: 36 hours of music before venue's closure

Southland's music communities say farewell to the much-loved and respected venue Pehrspace at 325 Glendale, which will be demolished on August 4th. The venue is hosting a 36-hour Pehrathon to go on all through Saturday and Sunday as a final effort to raise funds for relocation. The farewell celebration features many long-time musicians connected with the venue, with concert blocks curated by Michael Vidal, KChung Radio, L.A. Takedown, Slow Rose, The International Adventure Club, Fourth Fridays with Mary & Eli, and Young Lovers—over 20 artists are slated to perform.

In a panel discussion last week with organizers of DIY venues The Smell, Pacific Nature, and Bridgetown, Pehrspace manager Pauline Lay lightly mentioned the prospect of attaining non-profit status as Pehrspace searches for its next brick-and-mortar location to call home. In the month leading up to its imminent closure, the music and arts space has hosted benefit concerts and an auction and moving sale to help with costs for relocation. Artpunk tenants TrapsPs even opened up their last practice to friends and fans earlier in the week at Pehrspace. In its ten years of existence, Pehrspace has fully supported creative expression and become a powerful hub for DIY music, art, film and more. Sliding scale donations will be in place for this last event ($10-$20); consider further donating to Pehrspace's GoFundMe for its relocation and continued existence.

Folk rock songwriter Nadia Kazmi plays Baby's All Right on 8/8

On her third release, LAMB, New York songwriter, Nadia Kazmi shows an enviable range of genres, moods, and influences.  Opener “Kill the Monster” adopts angsty blues and punk elements, with results reminiscent of a Karen O with Janis Joplin's melodic tendencies.  The rest of the album, starting with second track Lamb in Wolf's Clothing, takes a narrative turn, as it displays more folk rock leanings with a vocal cadence reminiscent of Bob Dylan, and various other '60 influences.  “Haunting” proceeds to evoke The Doors and as the album progresses, the songstress continues to release intense energy and something akin to inner turmoil that manages to pull us in.  For what is guaranteed to be a lively show, check her out at Baby’s All Right on August 8th. - Madeleine Grossman

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best folky songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

New Mike Quinn EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Mike Quinn (Purples, Needle Points) has released a new EP Through Love. The record has a relaxed, rock-folk vibe, while still threading bits of raunchy riffs, incorporating biting texture into these eased off tunes. You’ll find yourself humming along to the twang of the melody, and you can expect a few curves along the path.

Gabriel Kahane lands (long!) Rockwood Music Hall residency

While singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane certainly does possess strong vocal chops, the core strength of his music comes from the "songwriting" half of his genre label. Kahane is a dexterous and thoughtful composer, balancing out the pronounced folkiness of his accoustic guitar parts with classic string or piano accompaniments on tracks like "Veda (1 Pierce Dr.)." He's also not afraid to "plug in" and rock out either (like in "Calabash & Catamaran") proving his versatility as an artist to perform a range of styles and capture a wide breadth of emotions. He even did a cover of a song from "Oklahoma" the musical for goodness' sake! On top of that, the strong Elliot Smith vibes in Kahane's music add an extra aura of melancholy, and if Rockwood booked him for a residency it means he's as good llive as he sounds on record. You can catch him next Rockwood's Stage 2 on 8/28, and then again and again until 10/23! — Henry Solotaroff-Webber, Photo Credit: Rebecca Deane
