Those Darlins Back in NYC
There's not much that can keep this band down. After a debilitating arm break (when's the last time you broke a bone? It sucks. Check out the X-ray above.) Those Darlins have rebounded with a new 7" and a slew of tour dates with The Strange Boys, and Gentleman Jesse. The gals, and Linwood, return to NYC undaunted this Thursday for a headlining slot at Bowery followed up by a return engagement on Saturday at Brooklyn Bowl, where Stark will be on-hand to partake in the revelry. The 7" features two live staples, "Night Jogger" and "Funstix Party." We've only seen "Funstix Party" played live once though -- an impromptu opener at Mercury Lounge while waiting for a lost Darlin', perhaps Nikki, to make her way to the stage from the bar. Fun times always, Funstix, hopefully not. At least for these editors.
