Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Friday, December 30, 2011

If you’re anything like us here at the Deli, your New Year’s Eve plans probably include getting smashed and dancing until your legs fall off (OK, maybe that’s just me). But before you throw caution and reason to the wind, you should probably warm up tonight and kick off your totally insane and righteous weekend at Johnny Brenda’s. Orbit to Leslie, helmed by Grimace Federation‘s Chris Wood, will play their quirky, trance-like mix of lounge-surf, jazz-garage, folk-pop and neo-Afrobeat, while Circadian Rhythms will put on a peculiar revue of sprightly freak-folk and jangly ragtime measures, best heard on their plucky latest, A Dream or Something Else. Throw in the roughly crafted, distressingly ambient dream pop of Your Children is Beautiful, and you have one hell of a night on your hands. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
