Don't miss an incredible DC Area show tomorrow night, Wednesday, July 9th, at Rock and Roll Hotel, when three of the DMV's best bands join together for an amazing bill, complimentary and cohesive, yet covering a wide range of sound and style. Richmond's Avers, on tour in support of their gorgeous psyc-rock debut album Empty Light, headlines the night. They'll be joined by Pree's lo-fi alt-folk, and Wanted Man's guitars-on-fire rock and roll (check out Wanted Man's new single, "I'm Gonna Go Out With the Planet," released on DC Music Download yesterday). It's a sure-fire non-stop excellent time for anyone who's a fan of indie-rock and local music. Doors at 8:00pm. $12.

Watch a live version of Avers"The Only One" recorded for Overcoast Sessions (Overcoast Music) below. --Natan Press

 Richmond favorites, and DC Area Deli Band of the Month, Sleepwalkers released a new single in honor of our nation's birth and the season. "Summertime" is a synth-pop gem, breezy and filled with enough misty harmonies to keep you cool on the hottest days. Happy America!  --Natan Press

 Rom (formerly The Dead Women) have released a new video for their single "Jerry Princess Taste" off of their debut album Soda Christ. The video features a couple resolving a dispute through the power of dance, in and around an empty New York subway station. Short and sweet. Watch the video below, then see Rom live on tour in August and September, starting with a show at DC9 on August 5th, and another at Galaxy Hut on August 24th

On a Friday night of December 2004, at Manhattan venue Sin-e' in Attorney Street, an emerging NYC band with a home recorded debut album played The Deli's launch party. It was a packed crowd and everyone was holding the first issue of The Deli, whose cover these upstarts were gracing. That band was Grizzly Bear. It remains one of the most exciting nights of my life, the night I understood that this magazine had a shot at being here to stay.

Now, this ten-year anniversary issue hopes to be a(nother) celebration of this great scene, in a less cluttered, more narratorial and visually appealing form thanks to art critic Brian Chidester's work as a guest editor. This issue also comes with my deep hope for NYC to keep churning out exceptional music of all kinds for the foreseeable future.

Socially conscious restaurant, Taste Gastropub, celebrated their one year anniversary on June 12, 2014. A percentage of the proceeds went to non-profit organization, Rock The Vote, whose mission is "to engage and build political power for young people in our country." 

My mission for the night was to find out what a gastropub was and how it tasted. I hypothesized that a gastropub was an organ vital for the digestive process. My hypothesis was wrong. A gastropub is a pub that also serves high-quality food. The exterior tasted like bricks, and the interior had a finished wooden taste. In all seriousness, the food was good and from the amount of happy people I could only assume that the drinks were just as fantastic.

Once I remembered that I don't know anything about food or architecture taste, I did my job and interviewed musical duo Ludwig & Stiegler. DJ Stiegler plays house music and EDM as Spencer Ludwig plays live trumpet to accompany it. The duo has been playing at every imaginable location, bringing an interesting sound to venues across the country. 

We talked about their musical background, their strangest musical experiences, and what advice they have for local musicians on reaching their music-related goals. - Hannah Brady

DC’s Black Checker are putting on an interesting alternative show at an interesting (new?) alternative space this Sunday, June 29th. For $5, at Churreria Madrid in Adams Morgan, you not only get the combo of Black Checker’s power-pop, Laughing Man’s psychedelic blues, and Rom’s (formerly The Dead Women) tight post-punk, but also a PBR or a churro! Choices...

Laughing Man are preparing to release their eagerly anticipated Be Black Baby EP, and Rom have recently released their awesome first full-length, Soda Christ (featured here on the DC Deli). Plus churros. Doors at 7:30. --Natan Press
