Deluka at the Khyber

A rose by any other name wouldn't smell as sweet: The Birmingham, England hard-rock quartet Deluka makes its Philadelphia debut tonight, hot on the heels of winning MTVu's video contest show The Freshmen for the clip to "Cascade." I saw these guys a couple of years back at SXSW and asked why they chose their lovely if slightly misspelled moniker. They replied, "just because it's a cool sounding name." Right answer. Singer Elli Innocenti leads Deluka at the Khyber this evening, supporting the band's bracing self-titled EP, which you can sample here.
