Chelsea Wolfe
The Deli SF says, “never mind the taxman-let’s live it up while there’s living to be had!” with a whimsical “Tax Day Party” at The Hemlock tonight: Blue Rabbit, Sacramento’s Chelsea Wolfe and Tippy Canoe (Oakland).

Blue Rabbit embarks on dark, serene musical journeys thanks to cello, harp and a thick layer of female voices. They reside and play often here in the city, and the feeling is that you’ll leave this song on repeat once you’ve heard it: Blue Rabbit – Sleep

Chelsea Wolfe’s really stepped it up in the past few years — a name well known in her locale of Sacramento partly due to her membership to Red Host, Wolfe’s leaves a strong impression on her own as well. She wields the haunting charm of Azure Ray, especially in the elegantly arranged track “Underwater” (stream it on MySpace). Catch the lucky girl before she heads off to Europe!

Tippy Canoe hops about the decades, mixing in the Motown doo-wops with rockabilly and pop. Dancing away the tax-paying blues will be easy with this opening set.

The show begins at 9pm with a $6 cover.
