Floetry to Play Reunion Show at Regency Ballroom – 6/25

The Deli SF’s first priority is always to cover local emerging artists from the Bay Area. We're also interested in occasionally filling you in on cool and unique shows that bring awesome touring artists to town.

Soul artists, Floetry will be performing live at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco on June 25th. This influential neo soul singer/songwriter duo made it big in the early 2000s by performing sensual, yet accessible and down to earth music for the modern generation. Electro singer/songwriter, Janine and the Mixtape will be opening the show. She’s got an awesome vibe and sounds like a futuristic Aaliyah.

Do your best to make it out to this show. There are so many options for live music in the Bay Area. We hope you’ll mix it up and enjoy different artistic and live music experiences.

Kymberli's Music Box Celebrates Ten Year Anniversary at Brick and Mortar - 6/20

Local promoter and founder of Kymberli's Music Box Presents, Kymberli Jensen has been one of the biggest reasons why San Francisco has been inundated with neo psych rock and roll shows for the past decade. She has booked countless bands including, Dead Meadow, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Spindrift, Cosmonauts and The Warlocks, and has brought influential bands like Rain Parade and Mudhoney to local venues. She has also been a booking support to out- of-town bands who relocated to the Bay Area like The Asteroid #4, and has a true talent for event coordination. She has also been known to be a big support of the early careers of local bands like Cellar Doors and The Dilettantes.

In 2005, Jensen felt the local music scene needed a female voice and her first show was with The Dilettantes (which included member Joel Gion of the Brian Jonestown Massacre) at Lipo Lounge in China Town. Other shows at Cafe Du Nord, 12 Galaxies and Bottom of the Hill followed.

Kymberli is one of the first female independent bookers in the modern Bay Area rock scene and has opened doors for current female bookers like Ash Reiter of Hickey Fest, Jessie Woletz of Seaweed Sway Presents and the young women of Our House Presents. Tomorrow night Dead Meadow, White Manna, Skeletal Sykadeliks and DJ Jodie Artichoke will be performing at Kymberli's Music Box Ten Year Anniversary at Brick and Mortar Music Hall. White Light Prism will be creating the psychedelic visuals for the show.

Make your way to this auspicious event to give thanks to a promoter who has contributed to the Bay Area live music scene for 10 years! The scene wouldn't be what it is without her.

Editor's note: Kymberli was one of the first people to embrace me when I arrived to the Bay Area as a music editor and promoter. She and I have a lot of mutual friends and history in the local and national music scene, and she has been nothing but supportive. She is inspiring and has great knowledge of the history of Bay Area and southern California rock music. It's my honor to be another woman in the music scene who shares the same passion for music, art and live performance. Congrats from the Deli Magazine San Francisco! -je

Con Brio Streams New EP + Performs at Stern Grove - 8/9

Mmm, R&B! Garage rock is so prevalent in the Bay Area (and is music that we LOVE) that we at The Deli SF hope and dream for the moments we can share some sexy grooves that will make you dance and sway your days and nights away. The Oakland based ensemble, Con Brio is one of the Bay Area's premiere R&B soul bands and you'll find out why when you check out their debut EP, Kiss the Sun which is streaming via soundcloud.

Along with taking the time to listen to Con Brio's album, we make a very serious suggestion that you check this energetic and entertaining band's live show out for yourselves because the 18 year old lead singer,  Ezekiel "Ziek" McCarter's lead performances resemble that of James Brown and Prince. Con Brio puts on a moving live show. The band is tight and has great chemistry and stage presence. You can see them perform for free at Stern Grove on August 9th!

Premiere: Battlehooch - Type One Error + Plays The Independent 6/19

The San Francisco based psych-garage rock band, Battlehooch has graced us with new music! The band describes their new song, Type One Error to be a relic that took years to sculpt into a compositional form they felt was suitable enough for recording and live performances:

"This song dates all the way back to our formative college days at UCSC. "Type One Error" was always a favorite of ours and kind of an homage to our love for stuff like Brian Eno's early solo albums and other futuristic Glam Rockers. However, we were never able to nail it live or get a suitable recording back in the day. It eventually fell by the wayside until a couple years ago, we started jamming on it during band practice and it just clicked and everything fell into place. It has become a staple of our live shows ever since and has become much more of an epic beast since we've started playing it again. There's a whole section in the middle where our horn player, Tom, builds up a crazy wall of interlocking sax loops right on the spot!"

Type One Error is part of a two song digital single. It's meant to tide you over while we continue working on the follow up to our last EP, 'Wink." - Battlehooch

We love music with a backstory. Don't miss Battlehooch's live performance at The Independent on June 19th with Sun Hop Fat, Bear Lincoln and Lords Of Sealand. Support local music!

n.Lannon Releases New Single - Another Love

The San Francisco based indie balladeer, n.Lannon has released a new single entitled, Another Love from his third upcoming full length album, Falling Inside. Falling Inside is due out on June 23rd on Badman Recording Co, and we're excited to share this new single to encourage a stir of anticipation for his new collection of music. n.Lannon is so good at creating a full cauldron of tastefully attractive love songs. His music could be compared to Julian Casablancas and Ariel Pink, but n.Lannon has a slightly quieter, traditional take on indie alt music. This new track is lovely and we recommend you take a listen.

"Another Love captures the anxiety I was feeling right before my daughter Olive was born," explains Lannon. "I was having a hard time imagining what it was going to be like bringing another human into the world; did we have enough love, did we have what it was going to take mentally, physically and financially? I was looking answers, clues, trying to prepare, but I never felt totally ready - far from that really! Of course, it didn't matter - she was born, and now I can't imagine the world without her."
