Best Punk Band to Play Bluegrass Underground

Those Darlins

There's probably no other local band right now that can be as many things to as many people as Those Darlins. One minute they're opening for scuzz-blues auteur Jon Spencer in NYC, the next they're playing a showcase (with opening act John Fogerty, no less) for the Americana Music Association festival, and the next they're at Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, playing under the chandelier and the stalactites as part of WSM's Bluegrass Underground series. All while "breakin' hearts, rippin' farts," as they say, and whooping up a frenzied, fuzzed-out Appalachia-studded punky pop style that's got the whole country (as in the U.S.A.) talking.
