Let’s get to know the bands. Today it’s the Midnight band Deadbeat Darling.
I also put together a podcast of all 8 bands playing Saturday, October 22 at Mercury Lounge. It’s a Free Podcast at iTunes
All the info about our CMJ showcase.
New York four-piece Deadbeat Darling is spending time on both sides of the pond. After selling out some of NYC’s most prestigious venues like the Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge, the band has been whisked away from Brooklyn by UK label Spearhavoc Records to record in Wales with Grammy award winning producer Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Gomez, The Charlatans). With a bit of downtown swagger and post-indie charm, their sound weaves together rock, surf, and dub in a unique musical tapestry that is gritty and alluring. A native of either extreme, their lifestyle toggles between Brooklyn dive bars and the mise en scene of the West Side’s fashion district; their live show is a sweaty barrage of unrestrained energy and mischievous sway that leaves little doubt as to why Deadbeat Darling has garnered such an eclectic and rabid following. From surf-charged rock to hypnotic, dub-fueled brilliance, every song becomes a welcome bedfellow, clawing their way into the corners of the psyche.
Also they just played my charity concert last Friday night and sounded brilliant. I can’t wait.
