Weekend Warrior, January 15 - 17

 

 
There is plenty going on this weekend, but the place that you have to be tonight is Johnny Brenda’s for Orbit to Leslie’s CD Release Partay with Aderbat, Grimace Federation and Power Animal! It’s a guaranteed rager! Woohoo…we’re already taking shots of Jameson to get ready, and we just chased them with a couple of Percocets. (Don’t worry, we’re law abiding citizens here at The Deli. I think that one of us has a legal prescription for their wisdom teeth.) Hope to see you sooner than later! Cheers! Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, 21+ myspace.com/orbittoleslie

The Tressels’ Record Release Show at Blockley Pourhouse Jan. 15

 
The Tressels have worked two and a half long years on releasing their album Bourbon Legend. It was marred by technical problems and a Spinal Tap-esque rate of drummer turnover. But through it all the core members rallied together to create a solid album that stands out among their best. Since their last album, 2006’s Prison Wine, earned them a spot on the Philadelphia City Paper’s Year End Critic’s Poll, it really says a lot. Of course, this time they also worked alongside Dan Hewitt (State Capital Records) and Bill Moriarty who has worked with Dr. Dog and Drink Up Buttercup. When you work this hard on an album, it calls for a serious celebration. And that’s exactly what the band intends to do when they play Blockley Pourhouse for their record release show tonight. They’ll be joined by Sure Juror, whose fast paced indie pop is sure to blend in well with The Tressels alcohol soaked tunes. Blockley Pourhouse, 3801 Chestnut St., 9pm, $5, 21+ myspace.com/thetressels - Bill McThrill

Join The Elevator Parade's Headphone Revolution at M Room Jan. 15

 

 
What first started out as a 4 song project by guitarist Rocco Renzetti has since evolved into a full blown live freak out! The songs of The Elevator Parade are as much influenced by 1960s England as San Francisco psychedelia, with just a few choice tinges of Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. The band has been hard at work with the recording and mixing of their newest album The Headphone Revolution. And all of that work is finally about to culminate with tonight’s album release party at the M Room. They’ll be joined by friends music.for.headphones who should mesh beautifully with the psychedelic shoegaze sound for the evening. M Room, 15 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $8, 21+ myspace.com/elevatorparade - Bill McThrill

Eliza Jones Helps Celebrate All Creatures at Green Line Cafe Jan. 15

 

 
Local songbird, Eliza Jones, will be performing this evening at Green Line Café to celebrate the release of All Creatures, which you can download for FREE here. The compilation commemorates 10 years of Sherman Arts and features over a dozen local artists who have performed at Green Line over the past three years including Power Animal, The Armchairs, and Jones’ band, Buried Beds.  Jones’ lush croon drifts between Fiona Apple’s lovely melancholy to Regina Spektor’s airy hummingbird, pulling at your heartstrings from the first listen. On “Camellia”, a delicate track with the production feel of Jon Brion, it’s easy to believe Jones as she sings, “I would follow you down so far/watching you/tracing a thousand footsteps/which one will bring you closer to me”. The Philly music community certainly has been listening, and Jones’ voice has taken her onstage with the Pig Iron Theatre Company and in the studio with Man Man, Dr. Dog, and Me Without You. Green Line Café, 4426 Locust St., 8pm, $5, All Ages  myspace.com/buriedbeds - Jaime Pannone

Alec Ounsworth and Special Guest at JB's Jan. 14

 

 
Former Clap Your Hands Say Yeah frontman Alec Ounsworth had a busy 2009. On October 20th, he released his first full length album, Mo’ Beauty, with a whole new lineup of musicians. He also unveiled Skin and Bone on August 11th with his all-star side project Flashy Python.  The new year brings a bunch of newly added dates supporting indie darlings the Cold War Kids, and far more dates after that. Needless to say, with all of the positive attention he has been getting, Ounsworth’s music is worth a listen or two, or seven. His lively folk-pop is aglow with layers of vocals and glossy guitar. Horns punch through, helped along by surprisingly propulsive drumbeats. Although many things seem out of place in the music of Mo’ Beauty, everything is tied down expertly by Ounsworth’s brilliant song crafting. The best song is the uplifting “That Is Not My Home (After Bruegel)”, filled with a reverb-drenched chorus and sporadic brass instruments that provide a wall of splendid pop sound. Catching your ears and nailing them to your headphones, Ounsworth takes you through the mind of a maestro, and you return from the journey with more than your money’s worth. Catch him at Johnny Brenda’s tonight with special guests Meth Beach and Jamey Robinson (of Buffalo Stance). Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, 21+ myspace.com/alecounsworth - James Sanderson
