Culprit - July 18th at Borderline

Culprit - Los Angeles rock band

Every once in a while, I go on a music hunt across the internet. Just when I had lost all hope of finding sonic treasure, I came across local rock outfit Culprit. Infectious melodies and powerful vocals bring hope to a genre that's been getting stale.

These boys will be supplying their talents at Boderline in Thousand Oaks on July 18th, along with Kayaks and The Mowgli's.

Of course, the Deli has an exclusive download of their unreleased song 'Decimals and Fractions' right here.

Eagle Rock's sweet indie folk troupe, Marvelous Toy, have a show with LA-by-way-of-Australia's Andy Clockwise and folk rockers, The Silent Comedy coming up on Tuesday July 13, at The Troubadour. Andy Clockwise returns to Summer in LA from an Australian tour this May with a new single. His new record, The Socialite, is available down under now and coming to the States soon. The Silent Comedy just did a stint opening for Mumford & Sons, in case you weren't lucky enough to catch that. The print issue of The Deli Magazine Los Angeles features an interview with Marvelous Toy helmer, Jordan Hudock. The summer issue hits the streets in about a month. Tickets for the July 13, 2010 show are available through Ticketfly.com. Doors at 8pm.

So Many Wizards open at the Rumble at 3 of Clubs tonight!

So Many Wizards, the Long Beach-based bedroom pop outfit opens tonight's Rumble at the 3 of Clubs in Hollywood. Their chops smack of Animal Collective with likable weirder similarities to other local indie troupes Moses Campbell and Pizza! Headlining is A B & the Sea from up north by The Bay, and also playing is What Laura Says from Tempe, AZ.  


Shepard Fairey and L.A. Musicians Give Art for Alt Press’ 25th Birthday 7-10

Shepard Fairey has a huge posse, and it’ll only get bigger Saturday, July 10 as he and heavyweights of the L.A. music scene (Mansons Marilyn and Shirley, Gerard Way, Matt Skiba and Adam Jones of Tool) gather to honor Alternative Press magazine’s 25th anniversary. The Merry Karnowsky Gallery will be home to a month-long exhibition of these notables’ artwork. The Deli chatted with Fairey about his contributions to the collection.

The Deli: Describe your pieces in the show.

Shepard Fairey: I have four different faux album covers – Obey designs that reference music history. (They’re) my tribute to the impact of LP designs. One is (Sex Pistol and Indie 103.1 DJ) Steve Jones in front of the jukebox.

The Deli: How did you get involved with the project?

SF: I’ve drawn from the inspiration of music a lot, and Merry Karnowsky is a friend of mine, so it made sense. Music is more populist; it’s more democratic; it’s more fun (than strict art). I try to have my art have that immediate appeal.

The Deli: Any upcoming projects?

SF: Doing illustrations (inspired by) the BP oil spill. There’s an ambiguity to them – seascapes that you sort of see as a Rorschach test. Also going to San Diego for a mural street show (Viva la Revolución: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape, running July 18, 2010-Jan. 2, 2011, at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego).

The Alternative Press Magazine 25th Anniversary Art Show is open to the public July 10-24 at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery, 170 S. La Brea Ave. in Los Angeles.
