Best of LA #16- Professor Calculus

Fans of mathematics and non-conformist venues, I present to you: Professor Calculus!  Together since November of 2009, this gaggle of gents has taken a slightly unconventional approach to presenting their music.  Reliant solely on word of mouth, Professor Calculus prefers to play parking lots, grocery stores, public parks and alleys.  This spontaneous approach to performing adds to their raucous, punk sensibility.  While I can't tell you where they will be playing next, I can suggest loitering in various Ralphs' parking lots and crossing your fingers. 


Watch out, fat cats

Pinch me, I must be dreaming. A cool indie band of young creatives achieving socio-political relevance through music video with a classically styled send-up of film-noir police dramas might be too good to be true. Maybe I’m reaching, but the their video Ponzi Scheme is definitely worth checking out. White Lights plays live at the Hotel Café this Saturday, April 24.


Not passing out at the polo field: The Deli LA

In the ever so apropos words of five of our hometown heroes, “I want to lift my hands towards the sun. Baby, won’t you show me warmth again?” Can I get an amen to that? The Deli LA will be part of this weekend's sun-thirsty mass exodus that is Coachella. We know you Deli readers are either 1) stoked to be holding one of the 75,000 sold-out tickets in your hipster hands (however intense or illegal it was to acquire it) or 2) bummed and bitter you won’t be basking at the Outdoor Stage for Yorke or basting in the Gobi tent for Florence & The Machine. Either way, friends, we’ve got you covered.

5gum is teaming up with Coachella to host an exclusive live webcast of the music fest! You guys can create your own personalized concert experience via custom viewing apps with live streams at Facebook or MySpace

The Deli dream team will also be tweeting live updates from the fest and will bring you specialized coverage next week from our faves who rep’ this city, including Mayer Hawthorne, Local Natives, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Flying Lotus and Kaskade.
Be sure to follow us on Twitter starting tomorrow and check out our site next week for our Coach-coverage! -Sara Tan




Love Grenades to play The Echo April 18th

If you are both a fan of music and stunning frontwomen, you should make your way to The Echo on Sunday to see Love Grenades.  They are playing with Love Is All and Weave, and they would deeply appreciate your attendance. 


Close Encounters

MC at the Echo

Saturday was the night we made contact! The Echoplex played host to a UFO themed celebration, complete with a tinfoil hat contest and an MC decked out in space gear. Mississippi Man, The Pity Party, and Voxhaul Broadcast all played out of this world sets for their earth audience. Headliners Saint Motel donned space helmets as they walked on stage and even threw in a special cover or Peter Shilling's 'Major Tom' later in the evening.
