We’re really excited that Those Darlins are headed back to Savannah for a show at Dollhouse Productions on Friday, 10/3. Brooklyn’s She Keeps Bees and Savannah’s Crazy Bag Lady will open. There’s a $10 cover — so freakin’ cheap! — with the doors at 8:30 p.m. and the sets scheduled for 9, 10, and 11. Because Savannah’s age policies are ridiculous, this is a 21 and up show (sorry kids).

Those Darlins put on a stellar show at the Knights of Columbus during the 2014 Savannah Stopover — and this gig at Dollhouse was arranged by Stopover parent company MusicFile Productions. Several contributors to this blog and other Those Darlins fans were lucky to see the band over the summer at Bragg Jam, but the sheer energy in the room made the Savannah gig a true standout.
Don’t trust my take on it? As Jim Morekis noted in his preview in Connect Savannah, Jessi Zazu was asked by Ten Minute Interviews about the best crowd the band ever played to; here’s her reply:
That question is literally impossible to answer. We have played in front of so many awesome crowds that it would be an injustice to name one above the other. I will say that the crowd at Savannah Stopover would be included in my favorite audiences of all time list if I ever made one.
Here’s the video for “Be Your Bro”:
From Joshua Peacock’s preview in Do Savannah:
With three albums down, Those Darlins are on everyone’s radar now. They released “Blur The Line” in 2013 and caused some controversy with an early unveiling of the cover that featured a conservative nude of the band members’ lower halves, epitomizing the hard rock, sexy edge of the album.
While a whisper of country western remains in Those Darlins’ sound, coming through in lyrics about love and heartache, they are every bit as rock ‘n’ roll as The Runaways and just as fun to see live.
Do editor Heather Henley is also pretty excited about Those Darlins’ return.
“In the Wilderness” from Blur the Line:
Maybe if we’re good, they’ll do this one too:
She Keeps Bees sounds great too, and Crazy Bag Lady is always crazy. It’s going to be a good night at Dollhouse Productions on Friday. A couple shots that we’ve posted so far in 2014, with more after the jump.
