Jukebox the Ghost Popping By at First Unitarian Church Dec. 10

If you thought that their debut album, Let Live and Let Ghosts, was just a slice of heaven, then you’ll be happy to know that Jukebox the Ghost have more sugary confections for you with their latest Everything Under the Sun. Of course, it didn’t hurt that they had help in the kitchen from producer Peter Katis who has worked with the likes of The National and Jonsi. But the piano pop masterminds also spent countless hours in studios, basements, and hotel rooms crafting the 11-song album as well as keeping up with their hefty 150+ shows per year touring schedule. At the Church tonight will be their last show in Philly for the year, but rest assured. They already have plans for more shows in 2011 which includes a sold out one in NYC with fellow D.C. natives and newly reunited The Dismemberment Plan as well as Guster and Barenaked Ladies (we know guys - sometimes ya gotta do whatcha gotta do).

Cassette Kids and Living Days play The Studio on 12.10

Tonight, two interesting NYC based bands from opposite ends of the eletro-pop spectrum come together at the Studio at Webster Hall. Sinister and sultry Living Days (who rocked awesomely at our The Deli's CMJ party at The Delancey), and bright and bouncy Cassette Kids (pictured) will keep the crowds moving. Formed in 2007 and originally from Sydney, Australia, the three blokes and a sheila of Cassette Kids now reside in Brooklyn where they create infectious dance music based heavily in bassy synthesizers and peppy electronic effects. The power-pop quartet’s latest “Spin EP” begins with the title track, which opens with videogame-like syths, accompanied by a catching pace, and jumps into Noorbergen’s clear, youthful vocals and lyrics about, naturally, bringing “the house down.” Upholding their high-octane tempo and syncopated backbeat, Cassette Kids keep the energy surging on “Lying Around” and drum-driven “You Take It.” Come dance the night away at The Studio to some Brooklyn beats. Doors are at 8pm, and the show is 19+. - Meijin Bruttomesso


Weekly Feature #229b: Shark? Live at Union Pool on 12.11

Although they punctuate their band’s name with a question mark, Shark?, play the kind of fun, irreverant and party-ready rock n’ roll that is best paired with an exclamation point. Combining the lo-fi recording aesthetic of many of their peers with quirky pop melodies and the raw energy of 70’s punk and sloppy 90’s indie bands, these guys offer a bit of something for everyone. Initially all the band’s recordings (standouts include Noise Maker and School Nights) were done solo by singer and guitarist Kevin Diamond in his apartment, but recently the full band entered the studio to record together. Diamond told The Deli the new recordings will still sound like the old Shark?, but more “fleshed-out” and containing “a bit of ear candy.” With the band already receiving praise from the L Magazine, Oh My Rockness, and more, the upcoming release should be more than enough for this Shark? to rise to the top. - Read Bill Dvorak's interview with the band here.
