Also, terrified, tired, and nauseous. All in anticipation of next week's incredible concert series -- hey, it never hurts to be prepared. Preemptive weariness aside, though, it's hard not to feel chills of anticipation at the thought of all these great bands (many of which have been, or are soon to be, tapped for this blog) assembled in one city: Rubik, Deastro, Choir of Young Believers, Little Girls, Bing and Ruth, The Golden Filter, Bang Bang Eche, Electric Tickle Machine, Gordon Voidwell-- the list goes on and on.
Before you lock in your concert schedule, here's another band to add to it: Darlings, an unpretentious Brooklyn outfit whose grungy-yet-crystalline melodies and world-weary sound belie the tweeness of their name. I was reminded of their awesomeness by a nice writeup of their new album, Yeah I Know (there's that world-weariness!), on Impose. Go check them out -- they're at Cake Shop and Glasslands on Wednesday the 21st. If Wednesday aren't your thing, they're also storming Silent Barn on the 30th. Ten hut!
