Do You Need the Service? & Univox at JB’s Feb. 26

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Saturday, Feb. 26, 2011

Even though Philly’s Do You Need the Service? has been performing in these parts for three years now, they’re no strangers to the local music scene – bassist Justin Hallman has tracked time in Pros from Dover and Bitch Slicer, and saxist Mike Tranmontana jammed in Black Landlord and Afterdinner Mints. The four-piece instrumental rock outfit, which also includes keyboardist Tim Day and drummer Mark Sconyers, is also no stranger to attention. They received positive reviews for their latest album, I Hurl Myself Towards Glory, released in July, were mentioned in Metro and Philadelphia Weekly, and even landed a live gig on NBC 10. You can catch their fusion of rock, funk, jazz and new-wave tonight at Johnny Brenda’s, where they’ll play with local staplesUnivox, whose penchant for wickedly fierce, raucous noise makes them Deli favorites, and Brooklyn five-piece The Better Letters. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
