Black Label Society to play Roxy charity show 8/10

Black Label Society

Here at the Deli, we're all about local music. We, however, have to take a short break to recognize the amazingness of more prominent LA bands like Black Label Society. On August 10th they'll be playing the Roxy as charity event with all proceeds going to the Zakk and Barbaranne Wylde Foundation at St. Jude's Hospital.

Of course, that's not all that's going on. The show coincides with the release of their new album "The Order of the Black" the same day. Zakk will also be at Best Buy on Pico Blvd. from 4pm to 6pm for signings.

If you can't make it to the show, or it sells out before you have a chance to grab a ticket, consider donating the ticket price to St Jude's anyways. I promise it won't hurt one bit.


Cali-bred/NYC-repped Local Natives play Governor’s Island

LA Band Local Natives

The first time I heard the Local Natives, I fell in love.  And when I saw them live, I fell in love all over again. These guys have succeeded because they do things differently, and do it right. Whether fusing three-part, graceful harmonies with swelling instrumentals, or blending Afro beats with sexy/sensual chants, body-slamming guitars, and rhythmic crescendos, they do it with passion and rock-filled beauty. And it’s not just the musicality that defines them – there’s emotionality and meaning behind every single song. Because, unlike some of their West Coast counter parts, the Local Natives don’t talk about everyday shit like weed, partying and being stuck in the middle of nowhere, but about love, loss and seeing life in a different way – intuitively, artistically and philosophically.

Local Natives will be playing with We Barbarians and label mate, Young Man (newly signed to Frenchkiss Records), at Governor’s Island this Saturday, August 7th. Lets send them some good vibes over in New York!

LA Band Patrolled By Radar

Lions, tigers, and bands? Oh my! Patrolled By Radar (formally 50 Cent Haircut) will be joined by a number of special friends at the LA Zoo on August 6th. A bit down tempo alt-country, there is enough twang to keep a smile on your face.

If the furry animals don't keep your attention, The Happy Hollows, Voxhaul Broadcast, Useless Keys, The Lonely Wild, Walking Sleep, and Slang Chickens will.

More info and tickets are available here.


Night Horse's sophomore album Perdition Hymns drops August 3rd

Los Angeles band Night Horse

High-octane guitars mixed with a heavy dose of southern hospitality is what Night Horse is all about. Channeling inflences from southern rockers like the Allman Brothers, 38 Special, and The Black Crows, the new album was produced by Matt Bayles (formerly of Minus The Bear). Perdition Hymns hits the streets August 3rd thanks to Tee Pee records.

You can download their free EP, released back in June, Sympathy Ain't Free on their official website. If Southern rock gets your mouth watering, the boys will be playing August 8th @ The Echo's Power of the Riff Festival.
