Otherwise Engaged: Those Darlins

It is an unfortunate reality for the serious concertgoer that on occasion, there will be more than one show on any given night that you really, really, REALLY wanna go to. Since the vast majority of us don't own a time machine, nor have the ability to either clone ourselves or split ourselves in half (or thirds or quarters, depending on the night in question), this tends to present a problem. Difficult decisions are made based on a multitude of variables (perhaps some of you even make lists of pros and cons), and ultimately, a show is chosen. But those other shows are still gonna be killer, and I'd like to give a little face time to the shows that, while I can't go myself, are highly recommended all the same.

So tonight is one of those nights where one is inclined to make pouty faces and whine about how it's not fair that there's SO MUCH good shit going on in DC and environs and that making tough decisions is hard. For instance, on any other night, I'd be totally all about going to see badass chickadees (and token maleage) Those Darlins. I mean, having seen them live already I know what a great show they put on, but I just can't see them tonight at Jammin Java because I've been promised elsewhere. DANGIT. So for those who are indecisive, and dig sassypants ladies and their whiskey-laced antics, I recommend to you Those Darlins. They're touring their new LP, and I'm pretty sure it's gonna be dynamite. The show and the record, to clarify.
