Diarrhea Planet and Those Darlins


Tractor Tavern (map) Ballard
Tue., Aug. 5 2014 21+


It’s an invasion! Both of tonight’s bands hail from Nashville, the Athens of the South. (They have a life-sized replica of the Parthenon there!) Those Darlins are boot-stompin’ rock and rollers, vibing on both garage and country. Songs like “Red Light Love” and “Snaggle Tooth Mama” give me some serious Wanda Jackson feelings, and of course I like their version of the old folk song “Keep My Skillet Good and Greasy,” because I’m a fan of food-related double entendres. Diarrhea Planet are on the same rock-and-roll spectrum, but their brand of garagey, restless rock is a roller coaster that turns and spins along with crashing drums, big guitar riffs, and simultaneously snarling and poppy vocals. Doesn’t Nashville sound good? To make tonight extra-authentic, be sure your preshow meal includes some hot chicken and Goo Goo Clusters. Mmmm… marshmallowy, chocolatey, caramely Goo Goo Clusters.
