Those Darlins to Play at Chronic Town

Looking for a Thursday night date that won’t bore someone to pieces? Skip the awkward dinner-and-a-pregame combo and hit a concert instead. Nashville-based band Those Darlins will play at Chronic Town this Thursday, Sept. 18.

The group is known for its unique, self-created genre, which ranges from rockabilly to classic rock. Those Darlins have toured with other indie rock bands like The Black Keys and Best Coast, but they currently operate under their own record label, Oh Dang Wow Records.

This alternative rock group has released three albums since its formation at an all-girls rock camp in 2006. In 2008, its music drew the interest of producer Jeff Curtain, who worked with Vampire Weekend on its debut album. The group dropped its first self-titled album in 2009. Following its release, the band received positive from alternative media outlets. It then released their most recent album, Blur the Line, in late 2013. The album features some of their most popular songs, “Optimist” and “Oh God.”

Local musicians Try/Catch and Annalisa Barron will open the 18+ show, which starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $12 at the door.
