Those Darlins are three of the cutest, most rockin, honky-tonk, whiskey drinking ladies i’ve ever seen. They opened for The Soft Pack back in January and I didn’t know a thing about them. I was floored. Floored. Here’s the review of that show….The girls’ debut album is out on July 7 on CD, and July 23 on Vinyl. If you act now you can get both for the price of one…See here.

Those Darlins hail from Murfreesboro, Tennessee and you can tell. Their country-licks are dead-on, but they play with a punk attitude, which gives their songs a little extra something something. It’s dance country and i’m not talking square.

The band, I suppose in light of how hard it is for artists to make any money these days, is going on tour with a sponsor, BluBlocker Sunglasses. If you buy the vinyl at a specific store you get a free pair. Sigh…..But Those Darlins are so good that I really don’t want to judge them on this corporate baloney. I’ll keep it to myself. Ahem.

The tour is big, and they’re playing a bunch of dates with some wicked bands including the Black Lips, The So-So-Glos and others.
