DOWNLOAD: Those Darlins - Red Light Love (MP3)

Those Darlins @ Mercury Lounge (more by Tim Griffin)
Those Darlins

"Flowered, lace and opaque tights paired with Converse chucks and cowboy boots trampled onto the stage of the Red Room. Those Darlins, a trio of rude-but-brilliant girls, started off what seemed like a calm, collected night; crowd members sat in a semi-circle around the stairs of the dance floor waiting for the evening to begin.

Within moments, Jessi Darlin on guitar, Kelley Darlin on bass and lead vocals, and Nikki Darlin on baritone ukulele tore the composed mood to shreds. "It's our first day in Canada ever," shouted Kelley to a rowdy crowd, ready and willing to dance the night away with drinks in hand." [guttersnipe]

That's a piece of a review from Those Darlins' November 23rd show in Vancouver with King Kahn & BBQ who finally joined the girls on tour again in San Francisco on November 18th after taking some days off due to trouble with the law (KK & BBQ had planned to play LA on the 17th, but cancelled that one too last minute).

Those Darlins have a few shows left this year, and then kick of a new tour in January of next year with three new NYC & NJ shows scheduled: February 2nd @ the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, February 3rd @ Maxwell's (tickets on sale now), and February 5th at Bowery Ballroom (tickets on sale now).

That video is such a bad representation of the band. The band is good, the video guy, not so good. Lesson number one, don't put your microphone directly in front of the bass amp.

these girls fuckin rock! their debut totally surprised me by how good it was

Hey Anon, if you don't like the video, umm, don't watch it??? See, when your microphone is attached to a video camera, and it's not, you know, detachable, one doesn't have the choice of where to "put it". Instead of being such a narcissistic fuck, why don't YOU go make killer vids and put your mic whererrrrrr you want to? And thanks Jen for posting the link. Agreed on one thing, this band kicks ass and I highly suggest going to see them live. But fair warning, the bass sounds come out of the bass.......wait for it........amp. Huh.

Love those girls armpits.........

They are really very cute especially when they perform. No doubt, a lot of their fans enjoy watching them on stage. I hope I could get to see them soon!

I can only hope there's more fur elsewhere like there is under their arms.........
